While visiting my favorite blogs today, My Year on the Grill spotlighted this blog. To tell you I'm very honored and flattered, just doesn't seem to really express how humbled I am by his post today. Thank you much for your kindness. Go visit My Year on the Grill, your going to find so many wonderful recipes (I'm still swooning over the Bacon Wrapped Potato Boats with Goat Cheese and Asparagus. Ok, since I have your attention, Grill also noticed that this is my 300th post. I didn't even realize this, I mean once my shoes are off and I get to 20, it starts getting confusing. So I had to come back to this post and edit it to thank My Year on the Grill. your kind words mean a lot to me. Also, I wanted to say, "Whoo-Hoo 300!".
I don't look 300 do I? Don't answer that!
Grilled French Fries -
You know sometimes you just want a side dish that is comforting and doesn't take a lot of thought. Sometimes you just dive in head first and let the crumbs fall where they may. Sometimes I just don't want to turn on the oven or the stove.
This particular day, I cooked everything on A.J's grill (he was in the Big Sleazy visiting his Mom), meat, starch and veggies.
To be honest, the potatoes don't make a mess on the grill. These are just the ticket! And guess what? Since cooler weather is approaching you can bake these in the oven. We tried it when I was all set to grill and it rained on my parade.
Estimate one potato per person. You'll have more than you need. Wash the potatoes, cut them in half and boil them for about 10 minutes. Drain and cool. Cut each half into 4 slices (leave the skin on, it gives them character).
Place slices into a bowl and liberally season them with Emeril's Essence or your favorite seasoning blend. Drizzle a little vegetable or canola oil over the potatoes and toss the potatoes with your hands to evenly coat with oil and seasonings.
Place the potato slices on the grill over medium-high heat. (If you use the oven, preheat your oven to 425 degrees F and bake for 20 to 25 minutes, turning halfway through).
Turn after 7 minutes and cook another 7 minutes and serve. It's not your average side and it's some simple you can't help but try it!
