There really isn’t a wrong way to eat potatoes. Baked, fried, or grilled, they are just the most versatile food that is delicious no matter how you prepare them. In the summer, we love to use the grill. It saves us from heating up the entire house with the oven, and grilling just makes everything taste better. With the different flavor variations, all of these potatoes have so much flavor. If you get bored with one, move on over to another flavor! We understand food ruts, but we promise you’ll never get sick of grilled potatoes!

Potato Options:

We prefer to use Yukon Gold potatoes for grilling, but you can always use red potatoes or even new potatoes.

Cutting Tips:

For those super tiny potatoes, you can simply cut them in half. If your potatoes are larger, you will want to cut into thick slices, quarters, or bite sized pieces.
