Once winter weather is over I am always looking for easy vegetable side dishes to serve when we grill, and potatoes are a staple for grilling at my house. We frequently make Salt Potatoes, a traditional Syracuse dish, but that involves cooking on the stove and heating up the house, which is not ideal when it is hot out. These Grilled Red Potatoes are a great alternative and can be cooked on the grill in a foil pan.
Making the Grilled Red Potatoes
This recipes starts out with a big bag of red potatoes, which I halved and sliced thinly. You shouldn’t peel the potatoes since a lot of a potato’s nutritional value is found in the skin. I like to grill red potatoes because they are lower in starch than russet potatoes which makes them firm and not mushy.
I also sliced up a red onion and added it to the foil pan.
To make the potatoes even tastier I mixed in some barbecue sauce, which adds a big bold flavor to the dish. I used Dinosaur Bar-B-Que sauce, because that is our favorite local sauce, but I am sure it would taste great with whatever sauce you like best.
Finally I topped it all off with a generous helping of cheddar cheese and bacon. Because cheese and bacon make everything taste better! I paired these Grilled Red Potatoes with barbecue chicken leg quarters, and they would be great with steak or pork too.
I cooked the potatoes in a foil roasting pan that I placed right on the grill next to the chicken. After 30 – 40 minutes of cooking, the potatoes are tender, the BBQ sauce is blended in and the cheese is nicely melted.
