Grilled Potato Ingredients:
- 2 pounds russet potatoes (4 to 5 medium)
- 2 tablespoons plus 1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt, divided
- 1/4 cup olive oil, plus more for the grill grates
- 1 teaspoon paprika
- 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
- Freshly ground black pepper
- Chef’s knife and cutting board
- Measuring spoons and cups
- Outdoor grill
- Long tongs
Choosing Your Potatoes:
Russet potatoes are the best pick for grilling.
They’re large enough to yield substantial slices and their thick skins and super-starchy flesh guarantee crisp outsides and fluffy insides.
To ensure they cook at the same rate, be sure to cut the potatoes into similar sizes.
Ultimately, you can choose any type of potatoes you wish, we just prefer to use russet potatoes!
Preheat Your Grill:
The temperature you want is medium-high heat (375 to 400℉).
Make sure that the grill is clean and that the temperature is stable so you get even cooking through the whole process.
The last thing you want to have is raw or overcooked potatoes!
Clean And Boil Your Potatoes:
Once you have selected your potatoes you want to wash them thoroughly.
We like to boil before we grill potatoes to ensure they cook properly.
Just fill a medium-sized pan halfway with water and bring it to a boil.
Add your potatoes and 2 teaspoons of kosher salt into the boiling water.
Let the potatoes par-cook for 8-10 minutes.
Cut And Season Your Potatoes:
Now that your potatoes are softened up a little bit, you can cut them!
We like to cut our potatoes into circles by slicing them across, but you can cut them however you would like!
Once all of your potatoes are cut, place them onto a baking sheet or cutting board so you can season them.
With the remaining kosher salt, paprika, garlic powder, black pepper and olive oil, season your potatoes!
Make sure each potato slice has an even amount of seasoning.
Grill Your Potatoes:
For the easiest, crispiest potatoes, grill the potato slices directly on the grates.
Arrange them across the grates to prevent them from getting stuck and to make sure you get great-looking grill marks.
Then close the lid to trap the heat and help the potatoes finish cooking all the way through so the centers are nice and creamy.
It usually takes about 5 minutes per side to fully grill your potatoes.
Serve Your Potatoes:
Once you have confirmed your grilled potato slices are done, you can immediately transfer them onto a serving tray.
Allow your guests to dish up!
Be sure your guests have proper dining utensils and any condiments they might prefer.
You can serve your potatoes with things such as fresh herbs, chopped green onions, shredded parmesan cheese, and sour cream if that suits your taste buds!
How To Store Leftover Grilled Potatoes:
Although these potatoes are to die for, we account for the fact that there may be some leftovers!
Luckily there are a couple of easy ways to keep your grilled potatoes fresh.
You can easily transfer what's left into a shallow airtight container and refrigerate them for up to 4 days.
Otherwise, if you freeze your potatoes in an airtight freezer bag, they can last for up to 3 months!
