When you search for grilled potatoes, most of the time you’ll find recipes using halved baby potatoes. This recipe is a bit different in that you’ll be using thinly sliced potatoes. The result is a tender, thick cut potato chip.
And they are delicious.
Let’s talk about everything you’ll need to make them.
You only need a handful of ingredients to make these grilled potatoes!
Grilled Potatoes are really easy to make but there are a couple of tips to ensure that you get the best results. Follow along with these step by step photos and instructions.
STEP #1: Using a sharp knife, slice the potatoes into 1/4 to 1/2 inch rounds.
STEP #2: Place the potatoes in a pot, add a pinch of salt and cover with water. Bring to a boil. Boil 3 – 4 minutes or just until they are fork tender. Drain. Don’t overcook them at this point, you don’t want to make mashed potatoes.
STEP #3: Place mayonnaise, sour cream, chives, salt, pepper and granulated garlic in a bowl. Whisk together until well combined.
STEP #4: Preheat grill to medium heat (about 400 degrees F).
STEP #5: Reserve half the sauce and set aside. Use the other half and brush onto both sides of the potato slices.
STEP #6: Carefully place the potatoes onto the grill. Make sure not to let them fall through the grates. Grill 3 – 4 minutes per side or until the potatoes have dark grill marks and are browned.
STEP #7: Transfer to a serving plate, top with remaining sauce. Sprinkle with fresh chives and serve.
The great thing about these is that you can make them as crispy or as soft as you like. If you leave them on a bit longer they will be more like chips.
Grilled Red Potatoes are best eaten right away. The sauce however, can be made in advance and any leftovers can be stored in the refrigerator for a few days.
