Grilled Chive Potatoes

Well now, these little bites of yumminess didn’t last long. Grilled chive potatoes didn’t take long to make either. Creamy and tender inside, the potatoes had nice crispy skin. Covered in butter and chives, with just a hint of lemon,¬† each one was sooooo good. I grilled the potatoes, but you can make them in the oven just as easily.
Grilled Chive PotatoesWhat will I do different next time I grill some grilled chive potatoes? Probably nothing. Oh I might add a pinch of red pepper flake but that’s it. They don’t need anything else.

If you don’t have fresh chives just use green onions instead.
