|Burnt Red Potatoes|
How’s your grilling season going? I hope you are enjoying many grilled treats this summer. I have to share an amazing recipe from my hair cutter. It’s grilled potatoes like you’ve never had them. He says the important part is the burning of the potatoes!
These potatoes came about by chance when they were forgotten on the grill and burned. My hair cutter insisted on eating them anyway and they’ve made them the same way ever since. He says their guests fight over the burned pieces. What a happy accident!
Amazing “Burnt” Grilled Red Potatoes in Foil Packets
Use smaller red potatoes or those labeled “new potatoes.”
Scrub potatoes and cut into pieces about an inch or so. Smaller potatoes can be cut in half. Cut slightly bigger ones into 3 pieces.
Place about a quart of cut potatoes into a heavy-duty piece of foil. Add 6 pats of real butter and a sprinkling of chopped fresh parsley. Sprinkle some garlic powder over all and close up packet.
I’m thinking of adding some black pepper and maybe some basil. Yum.
Put the foil packet on the grill making sure all the seams of the foil packet are facing up. Grill for 20 minutes, shaking the packet every so often. After 20 minutes check the potatoes for doneness. When they are done and when some of the potato pieces appear to be burnt it’s a good time to remove the packet from the grill. Serve the potatoes right away.
My hair cutter says that the burnt pieces are actually the most delicious. At their house they wait until most of the potatoes are burnt because they are the ones everybody loves.
I’m going to give these a try. They sound wonderful! Happy grilling!
