We got my Dad's old BBQ when he bought a new one. Made this recipe as stated, except to start them in the oven, then finished on the BBQ. Garlic, sage & lemon are such a delicious combination, & the BBQ gave these crispy potatoes a delightful smoky flavour. Will make these again, thanks for sharing :-)
Great recipe! I cut recipe in half with no problem. Used Yukon Golds. Great as a side to grilled lamb chops. Will be making this again.
Great potatoes; I ended up eating way too many! :) Made with dried sage and minced the garlic. These roasted up nicely alongside our meatloaf. Made for Zaar Stars.
