For those times when you just can’t come up with anything to make for dinner, think of potatoes.

They make the best side dishes and taste good no matter what.

This recipe is a simple way to make a potato side dish right on the grill in minutes with only 6 ingredients.

About this Recipe

It has a secret ingredient that gives the potato a subtle, wonderful flavor, beef bouillon granules (concentrated beef stock that’s been dried in a granular form).

When cooking these potatoes on the grill, sometimes a slice or two may fall through the grates and onto the coals.

But no worries, it should just create a little smoke which makes the potatoes taste good anyway.

In this recipe the skins are left on the potatoes which is optional.

Feel free to peel the potatoes or use organic potatoes if preferred.
