Grill-Roasted Herb Potatoes

It’s getting hot out. That’s when I try to cook every meal outside, from appetizers to desserts and everything in between. I’m always on the lookout for a good tasty side dish that I can throw on the grill, like these grill-roasted herb potatoes. They have a great herb flavor. But to really make them great, they’re cooked with (and topped with) French-fried onions.
