Don’t you just love strolling around the neighborhood on a summer’s eve and occasionally getting a whiff of someone’s barbecue dinner?
There is something magical about heat and smoke and barbecue sauce – slathered on ANYTHING and then grilled. For many years, all I ever cooked on my barbecue grill was meat. In the last few years, I have started to experiment and do grilled pizza, grilled veggies, grilled desserts. I even make a charred salsa verde on my grill. Yum.
Verdict: pretty much anything tastes better when grilled.
First up: appetizers. Yes, appetizers done on the grill. Two luscious bites of baked potato taste on a grilled potato slice. I love summer!
GRILLED POTATO ROUNDS, Baked Potato Style
Makes about 24 appetizers
6 medium sized red potatoes
A little cooking oil spray
Greek yogurt or sour cream
Grated cheddar cheese
Cracked black pepper
Slice potatoes into slices that are a little thicker than 1/4 inch thick. Place on a plate and cover with plastic wrap. Sprinkle with salt. Microwave for 60 to 90Â seconds, until softened to fork-tender. Let stand with plastic wrap on until cooled to room temperature.
Heat a grill or grill pan to medium hot. Spray potato slices with a little cooking oil spray and then place on grill for about a minute on each side, until dark grill marks appear.
Remove from grill and cool to room temperature. Top with remaining ingredients as desired. For a Meatless Monday barbecue, use chives and cheese.
