  • Tried and True potatoes on the grill ?

    We're at the point where we can make good steaks, burgers, dogs, and veggie kabobs on the grill. I'd like to round it out with some potatoes perhaps - anyone ?
    I don't want buns of steel. I want buns of cinnamon !!!

    heavy foil.

    red potatoes, cut in half or 1/4's depending on the size.

    sprinkle with parsley, garlic powder, and plop in globs of real butter, not spread.

    fold up the foil like a pouch and throw on grill.
    i forget how long my husband does that part, i just assemble it

    sometimes I plop in real garlic buttons, or i toss in some green onion slices.

    whatever. but they are yummy.
    I just hold on tighter, to a hand that's stronger...he knows my every thought, he clears my weary heart, and hold's on tighter...

      My favorite way to prepare potatoes for the Grill-

      Lay down two big sheets of aluminum foil (Doubled)

      SLice Potatoes into 1/4 inch thick rounds
      Lather with Pats of Butter
      Load with sliced onions
      Pepper and Lawry's Seasoning to taste

      Wrap up in a double layer Aluminum Foil and throw on the Grill. Takes about 25-30 minutes.

      Oh I'm Hungry.

        Herbed two-potato skewers

        3-4 boiling potatoes about 1 lb.
        2 small sweet potatoes or yams, about 1 1/2 lbs.
        1/2 cup olive oil
        2 T. chopped fresh parsley
        1 T. fresh thyme or tarragon, or 1 t. dried
        1/4 t. red pepper flakes
        1/2 t. freshly ground pepper
        1/2 t. salt

        Steam all the potatoes on a rack over boiling water until barely tender (15-20 minutes)
        Remove to bowl and cover with cold water, let stand for 2 minutes, drain and dry with absorbent towels/ Cut into 1 1/2 chunks and thread them onto skewers.

        In a small bowl whisk together other ingredients, set aside. Arrange skewers on grill rack. Grill turning frequently and brushing occasionally with herb mixture, until skins are brown about 5 minutes.

        I hate turning skewers so after the potatoes are cool I add them in a ziploc bag to the herb mixture leave for awhile and then grill in a grilling basket.

          I usually baked my potatoes on the grill. I slice almost in 1/2, add butter, onion, salt, garlic, and pepper on the potato and then wrap in heavy foil. I usually grill about 45-60 minutes depending on the heat of the grill. I will test and feel if they are soft. I then take off and let sit until we are ready. Not sure this will help but it works for me.

            I also put chopped green peppers in with my potatoes.

              Shoot! I just wash the darn things, poke a few holes with a fork or skewer, and throw on the barbie. If I am short on time, I will nuke them for 3 minutes. If I am getting creative, I put them UNDER the sausages that I am slowly cooking on the top layer (Yummm)

              It isn't how they are cooked, it is how you dress them!!
