Pioneer Woman has a recipe for Hot Crash Potatoes, which are very good potatoes, but usually when I have small potatoes, cause we’ve just gotten them from the garden, it’s summer time and I hate turning on the oven in the summer. Especially at 450 degrees for 20 – 25 minutes + you have to boil them before they go into the oven……… So anyway, Sunday night I was making dinner on the grill, we had chicken breast, corn and potatoes
When I got the idea, I could do the Hot Crash Potatoes on the grill! I didn’t boil them, just popped them on the grill pan with the corn, when they got tender, I smushed them, drizzled a little oil on them, salt, pepper, some chives and let them crisp up on the grill! And they were amazing!
Hot Crash Potatoes
Servings will vary on the size of your potatoes and how many you want. My potatoes were small, about the size of a golf ball maybe a little bigger, so we had 2 to 3 per person, but I love potatoes!
1 TBSP. olive oil, per 3 potatoes
Herbs can be chives, rosemary or thyme.
On a medium hot grill, put your grill pan with potatoes on and grill rounding the around for about 15 to 20 minutes, until you can press down on them and they give and spread out. I use the bottom of a jar. Drizzle tops with 1/2 of the olive oil, grill for another 5 minutes, flip, add additional olive oil, sprinkle with salt, pepper and herb of your choice. Grill for additional 5 minutes, until potatoes are soft, and brown and crispy.
