Grilled Potatoes

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):

Grilled Potatoes
(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.


  1. WOW looking delicious i like grilled potatoes and i will try it at my home today..:)

  2. I have never grilled potatoes! Those look absolutely delicious. You can bet we will be trying this soon.

  3. these look great! We "grill" our baked potatoes in the heat of the summer, but I am always looking for new ways to get the starch into our meals, which my husband MUST have, and keep the heat down in the house. Thanks!
