I am so pleased to teach you How to Roast Dirty Potato Fans!
This impressive side dish is a feast for the eyes & the palate, and can pair well with any meat dish.
These potatoes have a flaky skin that holds more dirt than other potatoes might, so they need to be washed thoroughly. The insides of these potatoes are bright white and the flavor is quite delicious.

Video Review: Ontario Dirty Potatoes at Harvest Barn Country Markets
I am very pleased with the fact that, as much as possible, Harvest Barn Country Markets bring in produce from within a 100 mile radius of their locations. Thus, they are supporting local farmers & businesses, and reducing the necessity of transporting produce over greater distances. In this way, the produce is harvested riper, it is fresher and hasn’t been as bruised or damaged during bumping over miles & miles of highways.
I have used quite small potatoes. So, if you use large potatoes you will have to increase the roasting time accordingly.

Prep Time: 10 min
Cook Time: 45 – 50 min
Yield: 3 – 4 servings
The ingredients & instructions are listed below the video for measurements & directions. Please enjoy this webisode of Cooking with Kimberly:
- dirty potatoes – washed & scrubbed thoroughly, patted dry
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- a sprinkling of freshly cracked pepper
- 2 tbsp butter
- sprinkling of sea salt – if needed
- sprinkling of parsley – finely chopped
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
- Have available a greased or oiled baking dish.
- Using a sharp knife, cut slits into each potato, about 1/8 – 1/4 inch apart, without cutting right through the potato. Stay at least 1/4 – 1/2 inch from the bottom of each cut. It will look almost like a fan, and during baking it will open up more.
- In a small sauté pan, heat butter and olive until melted.
- Then, add in a sprinkling of finely chopped parsley, or your chosen options from the above suggestions.
- Gently, pry open the fans on the potatoes and brush the melted butter into the fan openings. Season with cracked pepper and a touch of salt, if you use unsalted butter only. Douse the potatoes with more of the melted butter.
- Place baking dish into preheated oven and roast the potatoes for 20 – 25 min. The fans will have opened wider, so you can re-baste them with more melted butter mixture that has accumulated in the bottom of the baking dish.
- Knife test potatoes for doneness, and you will likely have to return them to the oven for another 20 min at least.
- When knife tender, remove potatoes from oven. You can re-brush with the butter mixture if you wish, and serve.
