Wash the potatoes with a good rinse of cold water in a colander. This will eliminate any grit from dirt and sand. Depending on the size of the potatoes, slice them in half with a knife and a cutting board. Leave them whole if they are on the tiny side. Otherwise, the potatoes may dry out.
In a large bowl, add the potatoes and both kinds of oil. Coat the potatoes in oil.
Next, add the spices. The oil will help the spices to stick to the potatoes. Next, choose your cooking method.

Roasted tiny potatoes are delicious all on their own, but they also can have various toppings with excellent results.
Loaded Tiny Potoates - Top with sour cream, bacon bits, cheddar cheese, and the tops of green onions.
Fresh Herbs - Top with fresh rosemary and fresh parsley.
Parmesan Cheese - Freshly greeted over the warm mini roasted potatoes.
Buttery Potatoes - Add a pat of room temperature butter and watch it melt over the potatoes.
Keep any leftover roasted potatoes in an airtight container. They will last in the refrigerator for 3-4 days. Reheat in a preheated oven at 400 degrees F on a baking sheet for 10-15 minutes or until heated. Leftovers can also be heated up in the microwave but will not be as delicious.

If you are short on time or want creamer potatoes boiling potatoes in a large pot will release the starches. If you have the time, this is a great option if you love creamy potatoes.
Tiny potatoes can also be identified as new potatoes, baby red potatoes, teeny tiny potatoes, little potatoes. The options are endless.
However, the one thing all these names have in common is the size of your potatoes. To be identified as tiny, baby, or little, the potato must be a certain size. Otherwise, they will be used for something like a baked potato - another use for regular potatoes.
