Grilled Potato Slices

If you are looking for a delicious AND easy way to put fabulous potatoes on the table, these grilled potato slices are the best. I had dinner with a friend the other night and she served a chicken dish that I’ll share with you soon along with these potatoes.

She gave me a rough idea of how she made them and hers were finished with butter and snipped chives but I wanted to use olive oil and rosemary for my potatoes. Once I scrubbed the potatoes, I sliced them into 1/2 inch to 3/4 inch slices.

I put a large pot of water on the stove and added 2 tablespoons of salt and a heaping tablespoon of sugar and a couple of fresh rosemary stalks. Once the water boiled, I added the potato slices and turned the pot to a slow simmer and set the timer for 15 minutes.

When the timer went off, I used a strainer and removed the potato slices to a plate and brushed them with olive oil and left them to cool. Then I turned the bbq grill on to medium high. Once the grill was hot, I rebrushed the potatoes on one side and put them oil side down. In ten minutes there were lovely char marks on the bottom and the sides were turning a bit brown.

I turned them over for just a few minutes and then to the serving plate. A drizzle of olive oil and a sprinkling of rosemary leaves and it’s ready for the table. While I did these myself, it would be a great job for partners, friends or older kids while you finish getting the rest of the meal on the table. You should consider trying these potatoes.
