Oh my goodness I so loved these garlic-roasted potatoes. Tender, almost buttery, yellow potatoes with a hint of garlic and rosemary, drizzled with an incredible balsamic vinegar reduction. I almost added red pepper flake (and you could, really) but I opted for a slightly sweeter no-heat version instead. Red potatoes would work just as well.

You can make the reduction ahead of time. I recommend making extra and keeping it on hand. Then, any time you need a quick and easy side when grilling, just toss the potatoes on and in no time you’ll have a big helping of garlic-roasted potatoes.

The reduction does take a bit of time to make. You gotta do it and you gotta have patience. It’s what really sets these potatoes apart from every other potato you’ve made or had.

A grill basket is an almost must-have for dishes like this. It makes cooking and cleanup a breeze!

Also try my grilled baby potatoes and my herb roasted potatoes.

Ingredients

Instructions

  • Fire up your grill for indirect cooking.
  • Place the potatoes into a large microwavable bowl and microwave on high until just starting to soften, about 10 minutes, stopping to stir every once in a while. Remove the bowl carefully as it will be hot.
  • Combine 2 tablespoons of the olive oil, the garlic, salt and pepper and the rosemary. Pour over the potatoes and toss to coat.
  • Transfer potatoes to a grill basket (I put the basket over a plate or bowl to catch any dripping oil mixture), or thread them onto skewers.
  • Place onto the grill and grill until lightly charred, crispy on the outside and tender on the inside, turning occasionally
  • Meanwhile, pour the balsamic vinegar into a small saucepan over high heat and reduce until you are left with two tablespoons, stirring often.
  • Pour remaining olive oil onto a serving platter and spread out evenly. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  • Add the potatoes.
  • Drizzle with the reduce balsamic vinegar and serve.
