Looking for something different to serve up with your next grilled steak, pork chop, or chicken breast? Well look no further than these crispy smashed potatoes!
GRILLED CRISPY SMASHED POTATOES
2 lbs. new red potatoes, scrubbed clean
1 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
1 tsp. Kosher salt
2 tbsp. parsley, torn into small pieces
Additional Tools Required
1 grilling basket
1 sheet pan
Prepare grill for medium-high heat cooking (approximately 400 degrees). Place potatoes in a grilling basket, cover the grill, and allow them to cook for approximately 30 minutes until fork tender, turning them periodically for even cooking.
Remove the potatoes from the grill. Cover a sheet pan with a sheet of parchment paper and place the potatoes on the parchment paper. Using a coffee mug or small pan, smash the potatoes to approximately ½ inch thick. Drizzle olive oil over the potatoes and sprinkle with salt.
Place the sheet pan on the grill, cover, and allow the smashed potatoes to roast for another 20-30 minutes until they are golden brown and crispy.
Remove the potatoes from the grill, plate and top with torn parsley then serve.
