Grilled Crispy Smash Potatoes
July 14, 2014
Looking for something different to serve up with your next grilled steak, pork chop, or chicken breast? Well look no further than these crispy smashed potatoes!
2 lbs. new red potatoes, scrubbed clean
1 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
1 tsp. Kosher salt
2 tbsp. parsley, torn in to small pieces
Additional tools required:
1 grilling basket
1 sheet pan
Prepare grill for medium-high heat cooking (approximately 400 degrees). Place potatoes in a grilling basket, cover the grill, and allow them to cook for approximately 30 minutes until fork tender, turning them periodically for even cooking.
Remove the potatoes from the grill. Cover a sheet pan with a sheet of parchment paper and place the potatoes on the parchment paper. Using a coffee mug or small pan, smash the potatoes to approximately ½ inch thick. Drizzle olive oil over the potatoes and sprinkle with salt.
Place the sheet pan on the grill, cover, and allow the smashed potatoes to roast for another 20-30 minutes until they are golden brown and crispy.
Remove the potatoes from the grill, plate and top with torn parsley then serve.
