Cooking MethodGrilling


  • 3 pounds small red skinned potatoes cut in half
  • 1/3 cup Kalamata olives, roughly chopped
  • 6 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil, divided
  • large handful flat leaf parsley, chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 4 sprigs fresh oregano, stems removed
  • sea salt and pepper, to taste


  1. Wash the potatoes and place them in a large stock pot. Add water just to cover the potatoes. Bring the water and potatoes to a boil and cook the potatoes until a knife can be easily inserted through the center of the potato, taking care not to over cook them.

  2. Slice the potatoes in half. (If your potatoes are a little large, slice them in quarters.) Place 1-2 tablespoons of oil on a plate and dip the cut sides of the potatoes in oil. Grill them on an indoor cast iron grill or outdoor grill just until the cut side is crisp and has nice grill marks on it.

  3. In a large bowl, toss the cooked potatoes with the olives, parsley, oregano, garlic, and remaining olive oil. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

My daughter loves roasted potatoes with olive oil, salt, pepper and garlic powder. I think she might really like these ones on the grill because she loves when potatoes are nice and crispy on the outside. I always overcook potatoes when I boil them though. Does anyone have any tips on that process? It seems I stick them with a fork and they are still hard and then when I come back a few minutes later, it's too late and they are overly soft.

Grilled potatoes are my absolute favorite kind. Because we follow a fairly low carb diet we used sweet potatoes and, boy, were they good or what! From the grilling they were crispy on the outside but really soft and fluffy on the inside. The olives, olive oil, garlic, parsley and other ingredients do wonderful things to the tastebuds so this is going to be firm family favorite for us.
