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.
You could substitute any herb you have on hand for the thyme, such as rosemary or dill. And though the fried onions could be omitted, they add a great onion flavor along with a nice crunch to compliment the creamy soft potatoes.
Also try my smoke-roasted potatoes and Anita’s favorite, Parmesan broccoli potatoes.

One thought on “Grill-Roasted Herb Potatoes”
Instead of olive oil, when I roast potatoes I use this roasted almond oil.
For me, the flavor harmonizes beautifully.
