From Bon Appetit March 2011: "A brief sear on the grill and chive-lemon butter dress up these spuds." Perfect for use with raclette. Simple and quick - no muss, no fuss, and tasty too!

For this easy recipe, I used both red-skinned potatoes and purple potatoes. They were roasted at 350 degrees for about 45 minutes. Then the potatoes were sliced in half, slathered with melted butter and grilled on a stove top grill pan for 10 minutes on the cut side. Transfered the potatoes to a platter and added another slather of butter and seasoned with salt, cracked black pepper, fresh chives and lemon zest. Reviewed for Best of 2011.
