Recipe by Marg CaymanDesigns

My favorite way to have potatoes. It works the best to do the first step (microwaving the potatoes) earlier in the day.

This recipe helped me figure out how to cook potatoes on the grill, but we changed it quite a bit. We don't have a grate for our grill so we use aluminum foil. Spray the bottom with Pam, put in potatoes with some butter, garlic salt, and pepper. On the grill for 30 and they are cooked and absolutely yummy. Thanks for gettin me started.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cook potatoes in microwave until tender but firm (about 3-4 minutes).
  2. Cool (at least an hour works best) and cube.
  3. Microwave onion pieces for about 1-2 minutes so they are slightly soft.
  4. Mix with cubed potatoes.
  5. Coat thoroughly (but lightly) with olive oil and as much seasoning salt as you like.
  6. Place mixture on grill, I recommend using a vegetable/seafood grate, over hot coals. Cover to prevent flair-ups due to the oil.
  7. Cook approximately 20 minutes, until golden, turning about every 5 minutes.
  8. Serve with sour cream and/or ketchup.
  9. This method can be used for squash, broccoli, carrots etc.
  10. You can also use garlic salt or other spices like oregano in place of, or in addition to, the seasoning salt.
