Lemons caramelize and sweeten slightly when roasted, and these Meyer lemons pair beautifully with the young potatoes. You can use regular lemons as well, and small potatoes too, but the fluffy Fingerlings and Meyer lemons help to elevate the dish into something truly worthy of the holiday.

Slice lemons into eight wedges, remove any seeds, and add to the potatoes.
Toss both potatoes and lemons with olive oil and salt, distribute evenly around the pan, and then place the pan in the oven.
