Why in the world did I never think of grilling potatoes before? I love every kind of potato there is: mashed potatoes, potato chips, potato balls, potato salad and of course tater tots.

That is why Ryan and I decided to cook most of our dinner on the grill to keep the house nice and cool. I say most because these potatoes do need to be par-boiled just until tender, but the 4 minutes that you need for that doesn’t heat up the house too much. Serve these along side some grilled steak and maybe even some watermelon salad and you have a perfect “Dog Days of Summer” supper.
