Grilled Red Potatoes come out tender, slightly charred, and perfectly cooked making them the perfect grilled side dish. Don't worry about turning on the oven, cooking everything, including your potatoes right on the grill.
These Grilled Red Potatoes couldn't be any more delicious and are so easy. After spending way too many years making potatoes inside while I grilled the rest of dinner, I am excited to finally move our entire meal outside. They make a great side dish along with these easy grilled vegetables or grilled broccoli.
Grilled potatoes are defintiely something you need to make immediately. Am I the only one who hasn't been doing this for years? I mean, there have been so many times over the years when I am cooking something on the grill and just don't want to have to turn on the oven as well. But with a family who demands potatoes or starch at almost every meal, it used to be a necessity. Unless I went for microwave potatoes, but let's be honest, they are never as good.
That's where this simple grilled red potato side dish comes in to save the day. The potatoes and onions are packed into aluminum foil packets and cooked right on the grill with a touch of butter and any spices you like. You can go simple with salt and pepper or mix things up with Cajun spices, paprika, oregano, or Italian seasoning to match whatever you are serving. They can also be finished right on the grill to add some extra char. It's an extra step, but totally worth it in my opinion.
Now while this base recipe uses aluminum foil, I am going to give you some different options depending on how you like to cook things. In my opinion, using a foil packet is the easiest since it doesn't involve any sort of parboiling or cooking first, but you can use any method you like.
There are three main methods for grilling potatoes and the key to each is making sure to get the outside crispy and the inside nice and tender, without burning anything. Luckily it isn't too hard to do and the effort is absolutely worth it. Grilled potatoes are something magical. Between the browned exterior, slightly smoky flavor from the grill, and soft and tender inside - they are really tasty.
Here is a photo of what they will look like if you don't place them on the grill after to brown the edges. They are delicious both ways.
