Bacon Wrapped Red & Gold Fingerling Potatoes
Like all potatoes, fingerlings trace their roots to the Andes mountains of Peru. Though the small, elongated fingerlings more closely resemble the wild potatoes of Peru, their current origins are much closer to home. Fingerlings have become a fashion statement in the culinary community as their versatility and unique shape lend themselves to many preparations and presentations. Fingerlings can be roasted, broiled, boiled, steamed or if small enough, even sauteed to order.
