  • 2 pounds new potatoes

  • 2 tablespoons water

  • 1 onion, minced

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • 1 pinch seasoned salt, or to taste

  • 1 pinch paprika, or to taste


  1. 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.

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

  3. 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.

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