Tater Essentials: Tangy Baked Potatoes

Andy Anderson !


This is an easy/peasy way to serve a wide variety of spuds. For this recipe I am using fingerling taters.

Just a few basic ingredients, an oven, and you are good to go.

The apple cider vinegar give them a tangy taste, but not overly so.

Served this as one of the sides on Thanksgiving, and the bowl was empty when it came back to the kitchen.

So, you ready… Let’s get into the kitchen.

How to Make Tater Essentials: Tangy Baked Potatoes


  2. I used a glass baking dish for this recipe; however, a good rimmed baking sheet would do just as well.
  3. Gather your ingredients (mise en place).
  4. Place a rack in the middle position and preheat oven to 425f (220c).
  5. Add three tablespoons olive oil and 3 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar to a small bowl, then whisk until combined.
    Season with salt and pepper, and a sprinkle of the other dried spices, then whisk to combine. Add potatoes and toss to coat.
  6. Add taters to a baking dish, or rimmed baking sheet.
  7. Bake until golden and tender when pierced with a fork, 40 to 45 minutes.
  8. Let cool for 15 minutes, then toss the potatoes with remaining tablespoon vinegar and sprinkle with a bit of salt.
  10. I like to chop them up a bit before serving; however, you can serve them intact. Enjoy.
  11. Keep the faith, and keep cooking.
