Grilled Potatoes


  • Potatoes
  • Seasoning (McCormick’s veggie seasoning, Emeril’s Original Essence, or any combination of spices including garlic, paprika, salt, and pepper)


  1. Wash potatoes, then slice into 1/4 inch thick slices.
  2. Boil potatoes for about 7 minutes. You want them to be soft, but not falling apart.
  3. Drain water then place potatoes into a large bowl.
  4. Coat with seasoning.
  5. Place on the top rack of the grill, or turn the grill to low and place on the bottom rack. I found that tongs work better than a spatula.
  6. Grill for 5 minutes on each side.
  7. Remove from the grill and serve.
  8. You can brush the potatoes with butter after grilling, but they taste good without butter as well.


They are slightly crispy on the outside, and potato-y on the inside. Yum!

  1. great idea and I am gonna try it!

  2. What a great idea to boil them a little first. I’ve always just seasoned them and then tossed them on the grill, which works, but can be a little tricky to get it to cook slowly enough to cook through without getting too dark. Thanks!

  3. What a yummy idea! I love that they don’t use any extra oil.

  4. Carol S. says:

    Love this idea! Baking a full potato takes too darn long. Look really yummy.

  5. Oh, cool! I’ve never seen potatoes done this way. I’ve always seen them put in foil packets. 😀

  6. This is a great idea – flavorful and low in fat!

  7. Wow, these are great. I was looking for a recipe that would work with Weight Watchers points and these are fabulous. I used a traditional barbecue rub from Steven Raichlen’s Grill Bible and kept them on the grill a bit longer. No need to add any oil. Delish!
