Rustic Grilled Home Fries

Total Time

This was created by my dad and I when we discovered fingerling potatoes in the grocery store. We cut them with a fancy cutter to make the ridged edges but you can just use a regular old knife. Very simple and easy and taste better than deep fried fatty french fries you get in the pub-without the guilt! excellent served alongside fish. You can add more spices if you like-but the basic salt and pepper allows the lovely flavour of the potatoes to shine through.


  1. Scrub potatoes and cut in half or into thirds lengthwise (depending on the size-try to make them all equal and fairly big so they'll hold up well).
  2. Place potatoes in a pot with boiling salted water and blanch for 8 minutes.
  3. Strain potatoes and immediately immerse in a bowl of ice water to stop cooking process.
  4. Let sit 5-10 minutes.
  5. Drain potatoes well, pat dry and return to bowl.
  6. Add olive oil and salt and pepper and toss well to coat -Be careful because some potatoes may be soft, you don't want them to break
  7. Place potatoes on grill on medium heat 6-8 minutes or until they begin to brown.
