Today’s recipe comes to you from a little segment I like to call My Dad’s Cooking. He came up with these grilled potatoes on Memorial Day, the perfect time to test if this recipe would be a crowd pleaser – and it was!

Not only did we run out of these grilled potatoes last weekend when we made up a batch for a backyard BBQ, we actually had people bargaining for them at the dinner table. Like currency.

These grilled potatoes are so good, they can actually be used for currency!

…Ok, maybe not in real life.

But definitely try trading up a few of these bad boys at your next BBQ. I might even try it at poker night on Friday.

I’ll see your poker chip, and raise you a grilled potato…

I’m pretty sure this will go well.

…I think.

So, without further adieu, my dad’s grilled potatoes recipe!



Grilled Marinated Sliced Potatoes

These potatoes are an easy, tasty side dish for the next time you fire up the grill. Feel free to add herbs like basil or oregano, and serve with your favorite grilled entrée. The potatoes are meant to marinate for an hour, but you can cook them immediately if you don't have time. The longer they sit, the more flavor they will have.
