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 steak, chicken or a juicy burger.


  • Red potatoes
  • Olive oil– Only use enough to lightly coat the potatoes, too much oil can prevent them from getting nice and crispy.


  • 1 teaspoon Kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon Rosemary
  • ¾ teaspoons Oregano
  • ¾ teaspoons Thyme
  • ¾ teaspoons Sage
  • 1/8 teaspoon Black Pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoons Nutmeg

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

Best Potatoes for Grilling

  • Red potatoes are ideal for roasting because they hold their shape well after being sliced, diced, and grilled
  • Baby Potatoes are also great candidates for grilling
  • Russet Potatoes don’t hold up quite as well when grilled due to their high starch content.

Check out this visual resource for more information on cooking with different potato varieties.

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.

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 5-7 minutes, until heated through.

Freezing Grilled 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 Leftovers

  • 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

Grilled Potatoes

5 from 14 ratings
These crispy grilled potatoes and are tossed in the best potato seasoning and cooked in foil. Enjoy perfectly crisp potatoes without heating up your kitchen!


  • 2 lbs. red potatoes
  • 2-3 tablespoons 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


  • Combine the spices for the potato seasoning. Drizzle the olive oil over the spice mixture and stir well to combine.
  • 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.
  • Place the potato slices into a large bowl and drizzle them with the olive oil/seasoning mix. Toss to combine well.
  • Preheat the grill to medium-high heat.
  • Layer two large pieces of foil down and lightly coat it with cooking spray.
  • Place the potatoes on top of the foil, in a single layer if possible. Cover with another sheet of foil and seal it shut.
  • Place the foil packet on the grill and shut the lid. Heat for 20 minutes.
  • Remove the top layer of foil and use kitchen tongs to flip the potatoes. Leave the foil off the top and heat for an additional 5-10 minutes with the lid shut.
  • Remove from the grill and serve!

  1. I’m so glad I stumbled upon this recipe… we had them last night and again tonight… I would eat these every day if I could. I used a Tuscan herb infused olive oil but otherwise stuck to the recipe exactly. Thank you for sharing! 

  2. I’ve made this three or four times this summer and except for a couple of tweaks (thinner slice, a bit longer cook time) to adapt to a charcoal grill, this is how I make grilled potatoes now. There is no other way. My wife is especially fond of the spice mixture.

    • AWWWW thank you so much J! I’m SO happy to hear that! The spice mixture was my grandmother’s and has a special place in my heart. So happy to hear that you enjoy it!! -Stephanie

  3. These were stellar. New favorite best way to grill potatoes.

    • I’m so happy to hear that Becky! It feels so good to be outside grilling potatoes this time of year! Thanks so much for taking the time to leave a review😃

  4. Really looking forward to trying these. Quick question, can I add other veggies (pepper, onion, mushroom) and use yellow potatoes? Or are yellow like russet?

    Thanks so much!

    • Hey Jacinda! I am pretty sure that adding other veggies would work out just fine! I would cut the onions/peppers into thicker chunks, like 1/2 or 3/4 inch maybe. And yellow potatoes should be fine, they do have more starch so they tend to be a little bit “stickier” but they can also get crispier for this reason, just spray well with nonstick spray! 🙂 Enjoy!

  5. Dear Husband (DH) made these and they were excellent. I found myself wondering how sweet potatoes would hold up to this cooking method. If doing the sweet potatoes, I would peel them and probably add dill to the seasoning mix.

    • I’m so glad that you enjoyed them Helen, thank you so much for taking the time to leave a review as well, I really appreciate it! I think dill would be a great addition to the seasoning mix! 🙂

  6. Could these be made in an air fryer?

    • Sure! Preheat your air fryer to 375, then add the potatoes and cook for 10 minutes. Give them a toss and cook them for 10 more. That’s the approximate way to do it, air fryers can vary so you may need gauge how they’re looking when you toss halfway through!

  7. I don’t have a grill. How can I make these in the oven?

    • Hi Christine! You can bake the oiled/seasoned potatoes on a baking sheet lined with foil or parchment paper on the middle rack at 400 degrees. Bake them for 40-45 minutes or so, and you might want to toss them halfway through for even coloring.

  8. I’m looking forward to trying this and I’ve got a stupid question: what exactly does “uncovered” mean in step 8? Do I open the foil packet? Feeling super dumb about this tbh 😝

    • Hey Amos!!! I can see how that would be unclear! I just clarified the steps, but yes! You will open the foil packet in step 8 and finish cooking it without any foil on top! 🙂
