Grilled Potato Rounds – served baked-potato style

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
Salt
A little cooking oil spray
Greek yogurt or sour cream
Chives
Bacon bits
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 90  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.

    I love the flavor of grilled food. Nothing beats grilled zucchini in my opinion. Although these potato rounds definitely look like they could be a close second!

    I am excited for all of the outdoor cooking coming up. I have already fired up my camp chef on the back porch a few times. It is just so nice to keep all that heat out of the kitchen as it gets warmer. I look forward to seeing more of your recipes!
