Grilled Potatoes

I'm obsessed with allrecipes.com. Seriously,  this site is AMAZING if you're looking for new recipes. Example:  last summer I had a few peaches that I needed to use up but not enough to can or make a whole pie or anything. So I searched for "peaches"  and found a recipe for peach muffins. That recipe has quickly become a favorite,  and is a post in and of itself for another day...

And you can sign up for a free membership and "collect"  recipes in your own "recipe box,"   so you don't have to re-search for recipes you want to make again!

So about a month ago (during a super-hot week where I didn't want to heat up the house for any reason) I was planning on grilling steaks and corn on the cob,  and had a bunch of red potatoes. I searched the site for "grilled potatoes"  and stumbled upon this recipe. I had all the ingredients on hand,  so I gave it a try. Wow! The flavor was sooooo good! I bought a larger container of mayo the next time I was at the store 'cause I knew I'd be making these again...

I've made a few tweaks to the original recipe,  and here it is in all it's perfect-ness:


Savory Grilled Potatoes
(serves 2,  very easy to double,  triple,  etc.!)

Savory Grilled Potatoes Ingredients



1/4 cup mayo
1 heaping Tbl grated Parmesan cheese
1 garlic clove, minced
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp paprika
1/4 tsp black pepper
1/4 tsp onion powder
2 medium baking potatoes (or 3 red potatoes),  cut into 1/4 inch slices
2+ Tbl butter




In a large bowl,  combine first seven ingredients. Add potatoes,  toss gently to coat. Spoon onto a double-thickness of greased aluminum foil. Dot with butter. Fold foil over potato mixture and seal tightly. Grill,  covered,  over medium heat for 30-35 minutes,  turning once.

I really like how the more-done,  crunchy ones taste. :) Hooray for easy,  grilled recipes!! (one word of caution:  don't forget to grease the foil and dot with butter... unless you want to be mumbling and grumbling as you attempt to scrape and salvage the potatoes...)




  1. Oh, that looks so good! I love grilled potatoes. I almost made them for our Breakfast for Dinner the other night but I had too much going already...lol! Thanks for linking up to the NOBH!

  2. Allrecipes is one of my go-to websites as well. I especially like their ingredients search. Type in the ingredients you want to use, type in the ingredients you don't want to use, and then it gives you a list of recipes to try! This was how I stumbled onto Thumbprint cookies when I had no dessert in the house.

    These potatoes look really yummy. I'm going to have to make these soon before it's too cold to be outside!

  3. I have all the ingredients on hand for this! Found a side dish for tonight that hubby will love. Thanks!
