Doug and I have been enjoying this new (at least new for us) way to cook potatoes! As some of you know, Doug is my go-to grilling guy and we always enjoy trying out new recipes for the grill. Plan on one medium-sized potato per person. Slice, drizzle with oil, sprinkle with seasonings and throw on the grill. Easy-peasy!
If you are looking for more grilled veggie inspiration, here is a picture of our "go-to" side dish (a basket of fresh veggies with olive oil, salt and pepper):
(Adapted from Dara)
Yield: 4 Servings
4 Russet Potatoes, cleaned (do not peel)
3 Tbsp. Olive Oil
1/2 Tbsp. Paprika
1 tsp. Salt (more or less, to taste)
1 tsp. Pepper, freshly ground (more or less, to taste)
First, prep the potatoes! Slice each potato lengthwise into 1/4''-thick slices. Spread them out on a baking dish, pan or plate (whatever you want to bring out to the grill). Drizzle with olive oil; toss to coat. Sprinkle with paprika, salt and pepper; tossing again to coat. At this point, you can cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until you are ready to grill.
Turn grill on medium-high heat. Once preheated, lay potato slices directly on the grill. Cook for 7 minutes; flip potatoes with a spatula/tongs and cook for another 7 minutes until middle is tender. Remove from grill and serve immediately.
