  • 1 lb baby potatoes
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • fresh pepper to taste


  • Bring a large pot of water to a boil.
  • Add potatoes and simmer for 12-15 minutes, until a fork inserts easily.
  • Heat grill to high (500°F).
  • Drain potatoes, rinse under cold water, and let them sit for a few minutes until they are cool enough to handle.
  • Slice potatoes in half. Toss in olive oil, salt and pepper.
  • Place cut side down on the grill (either on a grilling plate or directly on the grill), and turn down the grill to medium-high. Cook for 2-3 minutes with the lid down, before checking. Potatoes are ready to flip when they are golden and crispy.
  • Cook for another 5-10 minutes, turning as needed, until all potatoes are golden and crispy.
