"I was tired of eating baked potatoes the old fashioned way with gobs of butter, so I created this simple recipe to put a little twist on them. My family and friends love them and I hope you do too."

  1. Place the potatoes into a large pot with water to cover. Bring to a boil and cook over medium-high heat for about 10 minutes, or until tender.
  2. Preheat the grill to medium-high heat. Drain potatoes and toss with olive oil, black pepper, rosemary and salt to taste.
  3. Place the potatoes skin-side down over indirect heat on the grill and reserve liquid. Grill for about 15 minutes. Remove potatoes to a serving plate and sprinkle with the reserved olive oil mixture.

Very disappointed. All I could taste was the oil. I made mashed.

I took the last reviewers advice and used red potatoes. I cut each one in half and followed the remaining directions. Yum! These have that great fried potatoes crisp on the outside without a ...

I skipped the boiling process and just microwaved for a few minutes. Then quartered and let marinate in the fridge until I was ready for them. Great flavor off the grill.

This is a great alternative to fried potatoes! I have made them twice and they are simple and taste sooo good!

There is not enough "marinade" for these potatoes as listed in the recipes, although it tastes delicious after cooking. I would suggest doubling the recipe.
