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

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
  • 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


  • Combine the spices for the potato seasoning. Drizzle most of the olive oil over the spice mix and stir well to combine. Only add the remaining oil to the potatoes if necessary.
  • 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. Very tasty! They cooked up perfect and tasted so good! Made as a side with grilled steak and salad. Will definitely be making these often. DH said he wants these from now on. FYI I followed the recipe to the T. Perfect blend of spices!

  2. Usually I am disappointed with potato recipes. They promise crisp potatoes. They never are 🙁    

    Until today! We all loved these crunchy potatoes! My husband said they were heavenly 🙂 I added a touch of garlic and onion powder. From now on I will always make potatoes on the grill. I added a touch of garlic and onion powder but otherwise we made it as written. Thank you.

  3. I’ll be trying this today…..can’t wait

  4. Excellent flavor and texture!! My foil packet came open when I tried to flip it, but a final crisp in the grill skillet was just fine. I did not have any sage in the house (go figure), but seasoning was delicious nonetheless.

    • Hi Christine! I’m so happy that it worked out for you in the end and that the seasoning was great without the sage! 🙂 Thank you so much for taking the time to leave this review, I really appreciate it! -Stephanie

  5. Have you ever made these in the oven? If so, what temperature? And did you still use the foil or just put on a baking sheet? Covered?

    Thanks! Michele

    • Hi Michele! I do make these in the oven frequently, I bake them at 425 degrees on a baking sheet, uncovered. I set the timer for 20 minutes and check on them every couple of minutes after that. It takes *about* 25-30 minutes total. Just set a timer in between checking on them so that you don’t forget about them. No need to toss them or anything, just try to avoid having them touch each other so the outside gets nice and crisp, you may need 2 baking sheets. Enjoy!

      • Thank you, Stephanie! I made them the other night and they were a hit!

      • Hi Michele! That’s great, I’m so happy to hear that! Nothing beats a GOOD flavorful roasted potato! 🙂 Thanks for letting me know how it came out!

  6. Love these potatoes! They are crispy and the seasoning blend is on point! 

  7. These are AMAZING!!!! I could eat them all day.
    Best potato recipe I’ve ever tasted!!!!

  8. Loved the grilled potatoes with the flavorful seasoning. Best I ever had! I always loved rosemary on potatoes but the other seasoning enhanced the flavor. I used Yukon gold potatoes. Can’t wait to have them again and next time I’ll make a larger batch. Thank you Cozy Cook!

  9. Outstanding recipe. Made it on the grill yesterday. Very easy and quick.  Spice combination is great! Only problem is I Didn’t make enough. I could have eaten more. Thank you Stephanie!!

  10. Woooow…..Homemade!!! It’s the only thing that taste good! And so easy to do…

    I think I will look for these and try your recipe this weekend. Thank you for sharing!

    Dang Thai from Embeya!
