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. The added crunch and onion flavor really makes the potatoes shine. If you’re grilling a good thick steak, this is the side you’re looking for to complete your meat-and-potatoes meal.

There’s No Shortage Of Flavor Here!

You could substitute any herb you have on hand for the thyme, such as rosemary or dill and these grill-roasted herb potatoes will still be fantastic. For me, thyme is a nice gentle-tasting herb to use. It’s not too overpowering yet I’m definitely still going to taste it.

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 my wife’s favorite, Parmesan broccoli potatoes.

  • Tear off a large piece of foil, about 2′ long.
  • Combine all of the ingredients minus 1/3 cup of the French-fried onions in a large bowl.
  • Pour the bowl contents out onto the center of the foil and fold up the edges to seal it.
  • Place on your grill over indirect heat and cook 25-30 minutes, rotating the packet once, until the potatoes are tender.
  • Serve garnished with the remaining French-fried onions.
