Salt roasting potatoes is simple and makes potatoes that are well seasoned and that have a creamy texture inside. They are perfect as a side dish, but we love to serve them as finger food next to a dip.
1 pound small waxy potatoes or fingerling potatoes
Coarse salt, such as Kosher
Heat the oven to 350 degrees F.
Scrub, rinse and pat dry the potatoes. Fill a 2-quart baking dish with enough salt to create a 1/2-inch layer on the bottom of the dish. Place the potatoes, in one layer, on top of the salt. Bake until the potatoes are tender and you can easily pierce them with a fork, 30 to 45 minutes depending on size of the potatoes.
