Okay, I've made this 4 times now, and have a few conclusions and suggestions. 1-When cooking the potatoes in the micro, don't bother measuring the water--just cover the taters with water. Also, cover the bowl with a glass lid or plate or something; it makes the potatoes cook evenly much better. 2-I used apple juice instead of wine each time, and it's been great. 3-I only use about 1/4 cup of water, so the marinade sticks to the potatoes better. 4-Once they're skewered, I salt them generously before grilling them. Delicious! Even the kids love them and ask for them at each barbecue.

I loved the cooking method - but because I scaled this down to two servings these only required five minutes in the microwave. So much easier than cooking on the stove. I skewered these with red, yellow and green peppers, marinating all. Unfortunately, while the cooking method was fantastic and this really was good, the whole marinade thing is kind of a waste of time. Even though I added extra seasonings and fresh rosemary, one wouldn't even know there was anything but plain potatoes. As for the mayonnnaise, it didn't add anything to the flavor and only created an unbecoming "deposit." I'll make these again, for method, but will probably only rub the potatoes with a little olive oil, garlic powder and salt and pepper.

Great way to grill potatoes! There's never a shortage of wine in this house, and I didn't use as much white wine as called for and they turned out perfect. I love the rosemary flavor! It was a great side dish for grilled steak.

Perfect way to cook potatoes on the grill, but prefer to skip the marinating portion of one hour in the fridge as I couldn't detect a difference between it and brushing it on while cooking. Light flavor without overpowering the potatoes makes this a perfect side dish. 4 stars for ease and originality. Thank you kimberlyj for the submission!

These were very good! I was a little nervous to put these on the grill with all that thick mayo sauce on it. We do charcoal grilling so we put in the middle ubove the fire for about 8 minutes then moved to the sides as we grilled our chicken... "chili suace chickine" from this site....what a great meal! I HAVE MADE THIS A HANDFUL OF TIMES NOW AND THEY ARE SO GOOD EVERYTIME. WE GRILL THESE WITH CHICKEN AND IT GIVES THE POTATOES A BIT OF THE CHICKEN FLAVOR. I ALSO USE THE REALLY SMALL RED POTATOES AND DON'T CUT THEM. SO CRISP AND FLAVORFUL ON THE OUTSIDE AND CREAMY ON TH INSIDE.

We loved these! BUT I added some packet onion soup to the marinade! YUMMY! I think it added the flavor the other reviewers said was missing. I also added a shake of parm, green/red peppers, onion and whole mushrooms to the skewer. This was a great base thought to grilling potatoes though. Thanks for the mayo & rosemary marinade idea!!

I love this method, didn't do exactly as the recipes says... I microwaved the potatoes as it says to, then I just marinade it in Good Seasons italian dressing (I add a little mayo to it to make creany and so it will stick better) Then grill as it says, very good!
