I really love potatoes, whether they’re mashed, roasted, baked or grilled, they are one of my favourite foods. So, it was only fitting that on the hottest day in oh, say 92 years, I was craving some roasted potatoes. Well, there was no chance that I was going to turn on my oven so I decided to fire up the grill and grill some potatoes. Earlier this year I had stumbled upon a recipe for herb grilled potatoes which sounded delicious and I decided to give it a try, and boy, were these ever good. To me, this seems like a healthier and lighter alternative to the ever present potato salad, and personally, I prefer the grilled potatoes over their doused in mayonnaise first cousin, twice removed.
