It is cold out. I want barbecue. I don’t want to spend a lot of time outside. She Who Must Be Obeyed wants me to do the potatoes when I grill the steak. To the rescue, Easy Barbecue Potatoes.
This is an easy recipe that doesn’t take a lot of preparation yet gives a tasty result.
Start by cubing as many potatoes as you want. Cut them to about 1/2 inch cubes. For the missus and I, three medium red potatoes were in the fridge. Cut up about 1 tablespoon of onions per potato.
From there you can get creative. You can chop up green peppers, bacon, ham, garlic, whatever you like or you can just add the onions.
For this occasion I cut up about three tablespoons of the trimmings from my home made back bacon. Toss whatever you decided to add to your potatoes with about 1/2 tablespoon of olive oil per potato. Then season the squares. You can use salt and pepper or any premix seasoning mix you like. Cajun, Italian, and Greek seasonings are among my favourites. Today I felt healthy and shook on a generous amount of Mrs. Dash.
Either wrap the potatoes in foil or put them in a metal pie plate and cover with foil.
Put the potatoes on the upper rack of your barbecue over medium heat and close the lid. Depending on your barbecue they will take 30 to 40 minutes to cook. At 15 and 30 minutes, give them a shake or turn them over.
These don’t taste particularly barbecued because they are sealed in foil but they pick up the seasonings and are very easy. Any left overs are good fried for breakfast the next morning.
These aren’t gourmet but the are easy and tasty.
