My Favorite Grill Pan
I've owned this grilling pan for several years and have used it to cook vegetables, potatoes and fish on the grill.   It really makes it easy to grill anything that might be cut into smaller sized pieces that might otherwise fall between the slats of the grill.  I love this pan and use it nearly every time we grill.

There's nothing fancy about these grilled potatoes.  The flavor comes from lots and lots of garlic and a smattering of freshly chopped rosemary.  Don't forget the salt and pepper.  They will help to round out the flavors that will be enhanced by the grill.

Rosemary Roasted Potatoes Ingredients

Printer Friendly Recipe
Serves 4

  • 4-6 red potatoes, scrubbed and cut into chunks
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 4-6 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 2-3 sprigs fresh rosemary, chopped (about 2 tablespoons)
  • salt and pepper to taste

First, infuse the olive oil with garlic and rosemary.  Heat the olive oil in a small pan over medium heat.  Remove the pan from the heat and add the garlic and rosemary.  You'll hear the garlic and rosemary sizzle when you put it in the pan.  Stir and set aside to cool.

Infuse the Olive Oil

Heat the grill.  Place the potatoes in a bowl and pour the olive oil mixture over them, tossing to coat the potatoes completely with the oil mixture.  Generously season the potatoes with salt and pepper.  I used approximately a teaspoon of salt and 1/2 teaspoon of black pepper.   Toss the mixture again to make sure the potatoes are well coated.

Season the Potatoes

Place the potatoes in your pan on the grill.    My grill has three burners, so I turn off the center burner and place the grill pan over the turned-off burner section.  This allows the heat from the other burners to surround the pan, without getting it too hot right under the potatoes.

Potatoes Roasting on the Grill

Cover the grill and cook the potatoes for approximately 45 minutes, or until the potatoes are tender.  Turn the potatoes with a spoon two or three times while they are roasting.

To make these potatoes in your oven, preheat your oven to 425 degrees F.  Prepare the potatoes as you would for the grill, except spread the potatoes on a sheet pan.  Roast the potatoes for 30-45 minutes, until they are browned and tender.

These potatoes are a tasty side dish addition to any grilled menu.   You'll find many, many picnic and barbecue recipes on my Pinterest board.  Follow me for grilling inspiration.
