Baby potatoes have such a wonderful creamy sweetness to them. I love them roasted so the skin gets just a bit crispy. They pop when you bite into them. The Char-Broil Big Easy is the perfect cooker for making a lot of things, and these Fire-Eater potatoes are one of them. Roasted potatoes hit with a nice seasoning mix that brings a little heat to offset the sweetness.
You can substitute any rub or seasoning mix you desire, but you might want to shy away from any that contain a lot of sugar which might burn in high heat. These Fire-Eater potatoes do cook quickly since they are smaller, but keep an eye on them if you do use a sweeter spice mix. For a little more mellow (but still super yummy!) potato using the Big Easy, try my roasted baby potatoes.
Fire-Eater Potatoes on the Char-Broil Big Easy
- Baby or fingerling potatoes rinsed and patted dry
- Olive oil
- Fire-Eater seasoning to taste
- Fire up your Big Easy.
- Place the potatoes in a large bowl.
- Drizzle with just enough oil to lightly coat the potatoes.
- Add the Fire-Eater seasoning and toss to coat.
- Add potatoes to your Big Easy and lower into the cooker and cook until tender, 15-20 minutes depending on the size. I use a long bamboo skewer to poke the potatoes to test for doneness.
