Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Place new potatoes and water in a microwave-safe bowl. Cover and heat on high in a microwave until soft enough to smash, about 8 minutes.

  • Preheat an outdoor skillet for high heat and lightly oil the grate. Place a cast-iron skillet on the grill to preheat.

  • Drain water from the potato bowl and add onion and olive oil; mix well. Carefully spread potato mixture into the skillet and smash each potato using the back of a spatula.

  • Grill until onions are browned and potatoes are crispy, about 5 minutes per side. Season with seasoned salt and paprika.

Excellent as written! It is amazing how crispy and flavorful these potatoes get on the grill. And who doesn't love a side that can be cooked along side the meat you are grilling? These potatoes would go good with just about anything and they are super simple to prepare. This is an excellent recipe and one I will make often this summer. Thanks for sharing! Read More

We moved from CA where we had a huge outdoor kitchen/grill where we could cook all year. Fast forward to the present on the east coast where summer months truly are golden. We have a much smaller grill and one of those flat top skillet grills. This recipe can be made in a pan on a side burner in the actual grill in a heat proof pan or with the potatoes right on a flat top skillet. If you cook it on the flat top your onions get super crispy and brown. Feel free to add your own spices and be sure to share so we all can enjoy.:) Read More
