Grilled Potatoes with Smoked Paprika

Phew, I finally made it through week one of Occupational Therapy and am into week two! When classes first started, I wasn't sure I'd make it past through the first few days. It seemed like the work just kept piling on and there was no end in sight! I was a little overwhelmed, to say the least. Thankfully as the days progressed, and as I somehow managed to begin the organization process, I became more calm and focused on my immediate tasks and didn't worry myself too much with the overall workload.

This seems to have helped me avoid a panic attack. Progress is being made here folks!

The recipe I'm posting today is super quick and easy, and only takes 4 ingredients. We're getting into the fall season, which is also means we're nearing the end of barbeque season (unless you're my dad, in which case using the barbeque is a year-long event). These grilled potatoes are excellent to serve as a casual side dish for your final back yard parties and barbeque shin-digs.

Hope you enjoy them!

Grilled Potatoes with Smoked Paprika
Cook Time: 10-15mins       Yields 4-5 servings

4 medium potatoes, washed but not peeled
3 Tbsps canola oil
1 tsp smoked paprika
1 tsp kosher salt

1) Preheat the grill to a medium-high heat.
2) Slice potatoes length-wise into 1/4 inch slices. In a large bowl, toss potatoes with canola oil. Add paprika and salt and toss until evenly coated.
3) Lay potatoes slices straight on the grill in a single layer and cook until slices are tender, about 10-15 minutes. Flip potatoes halfway through to ensure they are evenly cooked. Remove from grill and serve immediately.

  1. Ellen, this sounds tasty. For the record... Grilling IS a year long event. The caveman in me has never met a piece of meat that didn't taste better over a fire... just my opinion. Baking Bluenoser Sr :)
