There are few things better than extra crispy potatoes, hot off the grill. (I personally love to dip mine in ketchup, you?!)

You only need a few ingredients and these can easily cook alongside some chicken or a juicy burger. If you’re really adventurous you could whip up a Salad while it’s cooking!

Best Potatoes for Grilling

  • Red potatoes are ideal for roasting because they hold their shape well after being sliced, diced, and roasted!
  • Baby Potatoes are also great candidates for roasting.

Note: Russet Potatoes don’t hold up well when boiled or roasted.

How Long to Grill Potatoes

  • Red potatoes slices into 1/2 inch slices take about 30 minutes to cook on the grill. 
  • The first side becomes nice and crisp after about 20 minutes. They’re then flipped and finish cooking in about 5-10 minutes.

Best Potato Seasoning

This is my grandmother’s amazing seasoning mix. I love to make it in bulk and use it on chicken, pork, and (of course), potatoes:

-1 teaspoon Kosher salt
-1 teaspoon rosemary
-¾ teaspoons oregano
-¾ teaspoons thyme
-¾ teaspoons sage
-1/8 teaspoon pepper
-1/8 teaspoons nutmeg

Reheating Leftovers

  • Leftovers should be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator and are best if used within 3 days.
  • To reheat, place them in a new lightly greased foil packet and heat in a 350° oven or on the top rack of a hot grill for about 10 minutes, until heated through.

Freezing Roasted Potatoes

  • Roasted potatoes freeze very well for future use!
  • To freeze, line them on a plate and flash freeze them for 30 minutes.
  • Drop them into a labeled freezer bag for up to 3 months.
  • To reheat, place the frozen potatoes on a lightly greased foil packet and heat in a 350° oven or on the top rack of a hot grill for about 15 minutes, until heated through.

Ways to Use Leftover Roasted Potatoes

  • In an Frittata or Omelette
  • Crispy home fries with some eggs. They reheat well in a skillet with some bacon and a sprinkling of green onions.
  • Potato Salad
  • Add them to Soup

These extra-crispy potatoes are easy to cook on the grill in foil and are tossed in my grandmother’s rosemary seasoning recipe! Enjoy perfectly roasted potatoes without heating up your kitchen!

Ingredients
  • 2 lbs. red potatoes
  • ¼ cup olive oil
Potato Seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon rosemary
  • ¾ teaspoon oregano
  • ¾ teaspoons thyme
  • ¾ teaspoons sage
  • 1/8 teaspoons nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
Instructions
  1. Combine the potato seasoning mixture in a small bowl and set aside.
  2. Slice the potatoes into ½ inch thick slices. I like to thinly slice the round ends off so that each side of potato is able to lay flat on the grill.
  3. Place the potato slices into a large bowl and drizzle them with olive oil.
  4. Sprinkle generously with potato seasoning.
  5. Preheat the grill to medium-high heat.
  6. Layer two large pieces of foil down and lightly coat it with cooking spray.
  7. Place the potatoes on top of the foil, in a single layer if possible. Cover with foil and seal it shut.
  8. Note: A grill skillet lined with foil is helpful but isn’t necessary.

  9. Place the foil packet on the grill and shut the lid. Heat for 20 minutes.
  10. Use kitchen tongs to flip each potato and heat for an additional 5-10 minutes.

  11. Remove from the grill and serve!
