Grilled Red Potatoes with Butter and Herbs

Updated on July 30, 2014

A Fast and Easy Recipe for Potatoes

This is a recipe that I have used for years when grilling potatoes. Microwaving the potatoes ahead of time shortens the time on the grill and makes it much easier to tell when the potatoes are done. The grilling time could be more or less since we all have different grills (charcoal, gas etc). I usually keep an eye on the potatoes and take them off when they are lightly browned and crispy on the outside. For a truly decadent potato dish,  drizzle a bit more melted butter over the potatoes before serving.

Ingredients

  • 2 lbs. small red potatoes
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1 tbls. dried herbs, thyme, rosemary or dill are nice choices
  • salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  1. Wash potatoes and cut in half.
  2. Place on a microwave safe plate and cook for 2 minutes.
  3. In a large bowl toss potatoes with melted butter and herbs.
  4. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  5. Grill over medium heat for about 5 minutes each side.

      Mary, these look delicious! They're quite similar to the oven-roasted rosemary potatoes I often make. The idea of microwaving them before grilling them so that the interior of the potato can be cooked all the way through without charring the exterior is very smart Thanks for sharing your recipe!

      So easy and so good! Roasted red potatoes are one of our favorites, so I know we would love these. I'm posting it as Recipe of the Day on my FB contributor page, Cooking with Whole Grains & Whole Foods.
