It’s time for the August edition of Three Cooks One Kitchen!
In case you aren’t familiar, Three Cooks One Kitchen is a monthly cooking installment that Joanna, Hannah and I do. We pick one of our places to get together and a food theme we want to focus on. Since summer is in full swing we decided to do another grilling event. I love grilled food and cannot get enough of it. This time we were at Jeff and Joanna’s family lake house, and we grilled potatoes!
I’m pretty sure I’ve shared on here that growing up my nickname was the potato baby. If not, now you know. I love potatoes. But surprisingly I had never grilled them before. Oh man, am I glad we finally did. These turned out fabulous. And they are super easy to make!
Slice the potatoes lengthwise, into roughly quarter-inch thick slices.
Coat both sides of the potatoes in olive oil.
Place the potatoes on the grill.
Do not walk inside, start talking, and get distracted. You will run outside to the smell of burning potatoes and be very sad.
If this happens, repeat steps 1-3 and then grill each side of your fresh potatoes for 4 minutes per side.
Top the potatoes with all of your favorite toppings. The sky is the limit, so feel free to get creative. Some of the toppings we included in our topping bar: chicken, guacamole, grilled onions, chives, cheese, broccoli, vegetarian chili, and quinoa orzo salad.
Eat and enjoy!
These were so tasty and a huge hit with everyone at the lake house that night.
