This is our favorite side dish to make along with whatever else my husband might be cooking on the grill, be it chicken, pork, or beef.
The other night, wondering what to have for dinner, my husband suggested we have filet mignon and “grilled potatoes”…that’s what we call my Rosemary and Garlic Grilled Potatoes. Without hesitating, I said YES!
As a side note, Sam’s Club has the best filet mignon! There is usually 6 filet’s to a package, which gives us 3 meals that costs less than $10 a meal (for both of us). Where could you go and get a $5 filet mignon? Nowhere!
While my husband took care of the steaks and corn on the cob, I took care of the grilled potatoes and sauteed onions and mushrooms (for the filet’s).
Rosemary and Garlic Grilled Potatoes
I partially cook the potatoes in the microwave before cutting them into pieces. It reduces the grill time and the potatoes come out perfectly cooked through every time.
3 medium russet potatoes
2 – 3 tablespoons butter
1 teaspoon dried Rosemary
1 teaspoon minced garlic
Salt and pepper
Heavy Duty foil
1. Wash and dry the potatoes, pierce and microwave for 5 1/2 – 6 1/2 minutes.
3. Remove potatoes from microwave and let set for about 10 minutes (unwrapped).
4. Peel and cut potatoes into bite size pieces, while they are still hot, and add them to the bowl. Stir the potatoes until coated with the butter, Rosemary and garlic (The heat from the potatoes will melt the butter making it easy to coat each piece).
5. Add salt and pepper and mix.
6. Lay out one long sheet of heavy duty foil and top with one long sheet of non-stick foil.
7. Fold up the non-stick piece of foil to form a square pocket, add potatoes and wrap tightly. Then wrap that foil packet with the heavy duty piece of foil.
8. Place on hot grill and cook for 20 minutes on each side.
9. Be careful opening the HOT foil packets.
Mmm, I have to tell you that dinner was wonderful! The steak with sauteed onions and mushrooms was cooked perfectly and melted in your mouth, the potatoes were done and nicely seasoned and the corn was sweet and tender (I like cutting my corn off the cob…it’s amazing just how much corn there is on a cob).
The next time you plan on grilling out, why not try these Rosemary and Garlic Grilled Potatoes. You can also vary them by adding sliced onions with or instead of the dried Rosemary.
