Grilled Potato Slices
For those times when you just can’t come up with anything to make for dinner, think potatoes.
They make the best side dishes and taste good no matter what.
Here’s a super simple way to make a potato side dish right on the grill in minutes with only 6 ingredients.
It has a secret ingredient that gives the potato a subtle, wonderful flavor.
These potato slices are cooked on a barbecue, so no pans to wash afterwards.
When cooking them on the grill, sometimes a slice or two of potato can fall through the grates on to the coals.
But no worries, it will just create a little smoke which makes the potatoes taste good anyway.
When you think of it, potatoes are such a loyal refrigerator pantry item.
They last a good long time in the fridge, can be made a number of different ways, and just plain old taste good.
This is the time of year to keep an eye out for bags of potatoes that go on sale at the grocery store as we near the Holidays.
I’ve mentioned it before but if they are really cheap I’ll buy multiple bags and then get home and have to figure where to store them all.
I don’t have very good luck keeping them in the regular pantry. They tend to grow those little roots pretty quick so I always keep them in the fridge.
On to the recipe but first…
….I hope you had a nice Halloween.
It’s clear sailing on to the Holidays from here. Have a nice weekend.
Let’s check out the ingredients.
Russet potatoes, beef granules, onion powder, olive oil, pepper, and salt (optional)
Here’s how to make it.
Preheat the barbecue grill on medium heat.
Slice the potatoes widthwise…
…and add them to a medium size bowl.
Add the olive oil,
onion powder, pepper and salt (optional).
Next, mix together with your hands…
…until the potato slices are coated on all sides.
Carefully lay the potato slices on the grill, so they don’t slide under the grill on to the coals.
Cover the barbecue for about 4 minutes. Remove the lid and turn the potatoes over.
Let cook for another 3 or so minutes being careful not to let them get too brown.
Remove from the grill and serve hot as a side dish…
