Grilled Potatoes

These grilled potatoes make a great side for your favorite steak, ribs, or burger. 

Grilled Potatoes

Grilling season is here and nothing is safe from my Traeger grill. We are big fans of the potato and love it baked, mashed, boiled, fried, air fried, cold and of course, grilled. I am a serious sucker for the potato and will never turn down the opportunity to eat them. These potatoes on the grill are no exception!

These grilled potato wedges or slices have that great grill flavor and the texture of a french fry. Grilled Fries!

How to Cut the Potatoes for the Grill

  • You can cut them in slices so you have circles like a potato chip but thicker. 
  • For grilled potato wedges cut the potato in fourths. (cut the potato in half then cut the halves in half.)
  • Cut the potato in sixths for grilled French fries.. (cut potato in half. Place halves face down. Cut the halves into 3 slices.) 

You can’t cut the potatoes thin because they will fall apart. Make sure you have thick sturdy slices. Also, size determines cook time. The thicker the slice the longer it will take. Visually you will be able to tell when the grilled potato slices are done. If you are unsure take a potato slice off the grill and cut into it to make sure it is done inside.

How Long to Grill Potatoes Wedges

This will depend on the size and shape of the potatoes. It takes about 25 minutes total time to grill potatoes.

For those grill marks, you will want to grill the prepared potatoes for 2 to 3 minutes on each side over high heat. Then turn down the heat to medium and cook for 10 minutes on each side.
