Grilled Baby Potatoes with Peppers And Onions

Grilled Baby Potatoes Recipe

I can hardly believe it’s almost the 4th of July already!!! Time is whizzing by so fast that I can quite wrap my head around it!

Summer in Illinois has been odd, at best. Last year we experienced an entire summer of 90+ degrees and almost no rain to speak of. This summer we’ve only had a handful of 90 degree days and the rain keeps on a-comin’.

I think today we’re not even expected to reach 70 with more rain expected! Sheesh!  Like I said….odd, indeed.

One thing’s for certain however, no matter the weather, summer is all about grilling and BBQ’s so it’s only fitting that today’s theme (hosted by Jennie of The Messy Baker) has us all firing up the grill!!! Thanks for hosting Jennie and, great choice!!!


My recipe is one that I’ve made a few times this season already (the photos show are actually from the two different times I’ve made these this summer), and it takes advantage of all those cute little colorful potatoes (red, white and purple) that I’ve been finding at the grocery store lately.

It also makes use of all those wonderfully, plump, sweet and colorful bell peppers. Not to mention my all-time favorite aromatics…onions and garlic! Have fun playing with the colors and ingredients with this one. As far as I’m concerned…the more colorful, the better!!!

When making this grilled side dish, make sure you allow these potatoes enough time on the grill to cook through thoroughly. You may even need to start them before anything else you may be serving (depending on what your menu is) so plan on at least 45 minutes, or until the potatoes are fork-tender.

An unusual thing about this recipe is that it also utilizes the grill as an outdoor oven.

The way I do this is by placing a tin foil covered brick on the grates of the grill and then placing the casserole dish of potatoes on top of the brick, not directly on the grill grates.

Doing this ensures that the cooking of the potatoes are done more like in an oven with indirect heat and that the potatoes won’t char and burn as they would if placed directly on the grill grate. Works like a charm!!!

Serves – 6-8       Prep time:  10 minutes        Cook time:  45+ minutes

2 pounds of baby potatoes (or red new potatoes if you can’t find the colorful ones), cut in half
3-4 bell peppers (your choice of color), cored and chopped into 1″ size chunks
2 onions (your choice, red, Vidalia, Spanish), peeled and chopped into 1″ size chunks
4-5 cloves garlic, peeled and chopped
3-4 tablespoons olive oil
3 sprigs fresh rosemary (plus extra to garnish)
1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
1 teaspoon black pepper
Sour cream or French onion dip to garnish (optional)

-Place all the ingredients into a large bowl (no specific order necessary) and mix well to combine and coat all the ingredients with the oil.
-Place the potato mixture into a large casserole dish.
-Place the casserole dish on top of the foil-covered brick and close the lid of the grill.
-Cook over medium/high heat for approximately 45 minutes or until fork-tender, stirring occasionally.
-Remove from the grill and cover with foil until ready to serve.
-Garnish with sour cream or French onion dip is desired and an additional sprig of rosemary.

I’ll bet you’d love a scratch and sniff screen right about now, wouldn’t you? LOL

Enjoy your summer everybody! Now, go get your grill on!!!
