Grilled Rosemary Garlic Potatoes

I have been extremely busy with freelance recipe writing and developing for the past couple of weeks and feel as if my blog has been neglected.  Although it may be odd to miss a blog, I have really missed mine.  Developing a recipe on my own terms, photographing the result and sharing the creation with you and my family is truly gratifying.  I also enjoy the feeling of producing something I’m proud of and receiving your feedback, compliments and constructive criticism.

So here I am – this week I had to make time for a post.  In my various freelance work, I was introduced to the concept of grilling potatoes.  I honestly never thought of preparing spuds in this fashion.  I instantly fell in love.  Potatoes really lend themselves to that smoky grill flavor and I love the subtle charring of the vegetables sweet flesh.  It is a wonderful alternative to roasting.

I simply added some garlic and rosemary to this versatile dish.  So exercise your creativity and throw in something appealing.  We are right on the heels of grilling season, and this delicious side dish will quickly warm up your BBQ skills!

Grilled Rosemary Garlic Potatoes

Serves 4-6
  • 1 pound small, yellow new potatoes
  • 2 medium sweet potatoes
  • 2 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons finely chopped fresh rosemary
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 to 1 teaspoon kosher salt, to taste

Cooking Directions
  1. Heat grill to 400 degrees.
  2. Slice new potatoes in halves (quarters if they are a bit larger). Peel and slice sweet potatoes into 1 inch cubes.
  3. Place potatoes in large bowl. Add olive oil, rosemary, garlic powder and salt. Stir until well combined.
  4. Place a grill pan or large iron skillet on the grill. Add potatoes and grill for 30-40 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes.
  5. Serve hot.
