If you’re looking for a fast and simple side to add that additional “wow factor” to a steak or some BBQ chicken, this is the PERFECT go-to! With just a few ingredients, simple preparation, and BIG FLAVOR – you cannot go wrong here!
Crispy Buttery Grilled Potatoes
- 5 Yellow/Gold Potatoes
- 1/2 Cup Italian Dressing
- 1/2 Cup Melted Butter
- 1/4 Cup Louisiana Hot Sauce
The sauce here goes perfect with our potatoes. We get the nice garlic flavor with sweet notes from our Italian Dressing, the creamyness of the butter, and the vinegary zing from our hot sauce. When this sauce is cooked onto our potatoes, it is a match made in heaven!
To make your simple sauce, thoroughly mix the Italian Dressing, melted butter, and Louisiana Hot Sauce. Set aside.
We use yellow/gold potatoes because the skin is light and pleasing to eat and the potato itself is very creamy which is a perfect vessel for these flavors!
Par boil your potatoes on the stove. We do this because cooking a raw potato on the grill can take quite a bit of time and this just ensures a perfectly cooked potato with all of the right balance of flavors. This will take about 20 minutes. Take a knife and it should slide easily in and out of your potato. Once done – slice your potatoes in half after allowing them to cool a bit.
Start your coals and let the grill get hot. Take your sauce and brush it heavily over the cut side of the potatoes. Place your cut side of the potatoes over the hot grill first. While cooking, heavily baste the exposed side of the potatoes.
Let them cook for about 5 minutes or so. We want these potatoes to get a good brown color on them. Once you’ve achieved that beautiful brown char, flip your potatoes over and cook the other side. Baste them again. We really want this sauce to cook into the potatoes as much as possible!
Once done – pull these bad mamma jammas off and baste once more!
Serve and bask in the pool of hugs and kisses you’ll get from your guests!
