    Chef Kate's Note:

    I can't wait to grill again--and these are super! From "Let the Flames Begin," by Chris Schlesinger and John Willoughby, published by W.W. Norton. Time does not include the time to heat your coals.

    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Build a multilevel fire in your grill, leaving one-quarter of the bottom free of coals and banking the coals in the remaining three-quarters of the grill so that they are three times as high on side as on the other. When the coals are down to medium heat (you can hold your hand about 5 inches above the grill grid for 4 to 5 seconds), you are ready to cook.
    2. 2
      While the fire is heating, blanch the potatoes in boiling salted water until tender (you should be able to stick a toothpick into them but still feel some resistance), about 5 to 8 minutes.
    3. 3
      Cut the potatoes in half lengthwise, rub them lightly all over with oil and sprinkle them generously with salt and pepper. Arrange them, cut side down, over the hottest coals and cook until the potatoes are crusty and brown, about 4 minutes per side.
    4. 4
      Meanwhile, place a sturdy foil pan large enough to hold all of the potatoes in a single layer on the cooler side of the grill, away from the fire.
    5. 5
      Transfer the grilled potatoes to the pan, placing them cut side up, and scatter the blue cheese over them.
    6. 6
      Allow the cheese to melt slightly, then serve hot.

      The process sounded all white-knuckly and scary and I feared I'd mess this up, but it's easier than you'd think. Great stuff! Made for 123 Hit Wonders.

      Thank you Kate; your recipe was an excellent choice for my non-traditional Christmas dinner. Fingerlings are my potato of choice for any dinner party; so easy to prepare. No muss, no fuss. I used a mixture of yellow flesh and red skin fingerlings which added to festive colours. The addition of Rosenborg's Danish Blue, and allowing it to melt on the potatoes, just before serving, is perfect. Thank you again, I shall be repeating this recipe...

      Perfect -- ideal with grilled steak! I did put the potatoes in a baking pan earlier than specified because I thought they may fall through the grill - next time I'll use a grill basket! This is the first time I ever put cheese on potatoes but we will be making potatoes this way whenever we can get fingerlings from now on! Thanks for sharing!
