A nice, easy preparation for a side dish that you will want to put in to your repetoire for summer and beyond. This recipe can be cooked on a BBQ grill, stovetop grill or even in a sandwich/panini maker. Adjust herbs and spices to fit your taste or menu. I'm thinking Cajun would be darned good. Experiment with different types of potatoes, too.
- 4 large potatoes (your choice, but russet or Idaho are great)
- 1⁄2 cup olive oil (1/4 or less for for a lower fat version)
- 2 teaspoons sea salt
- 1 teaspoon pepper
- 2 tablespoons fresh rosemary
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 1⁄4 teaspoon cayenne pepper (optional)
- 1⁄2 teaspoon paprika (optional)
- Wash the potatoes and standing them on their side, cut 1/4 inch "planks". In a large bowl, toss potatoes with other ingredients until all are coated evenly. Grill should be nice and hot (approx. 550 degrees farenheit). Spray grill with PAM or coat with oil (unless it is non-stick). Lay potato planks onto the grill for 15 to 20 minutes, turning every five minutes, until done. "Done" means a nice dark golden brown with grill marks evident. (A good panini maker may cook the potatoes a bit sooner.) DIG IN!
Fantastic! I used less than 1/4 cup of vegetable oil, and subbed dried oregano and choped chives for the rosemary and garlic. Cooked on the grill and they were so so good. The whole family enjoyed them. Thanks for posting! We will definitely make these again.
I made this on a stove grill and I used garlic powder,coz it's too cold to open the kitchen window. We used to make this in the summer too for BBQ,but without the spices,didn't think that I could make them home as well.Thanks for sharing.
Loved the fact I could make in my panini maker! Made my planks with sweet potatoes. The only comment is if using a panini maker besure your planks are of equal thickness!
