BBQ Potatoes

BBQ Potatoes

This is so simple it doesn’t even qualify as a recipe. But I don’t care, sharing it anyway!

When I whipped up an indecent amount of Sunshine BBQ Chicken, I needed an easy side dish that wouldn’t overrule the flavor of the chicken and could also be prepped in an oven as well… since I know not every one has a Big Green Egg. Yes, I know, you can stop glaring at me now! I’m letting you live vicariously through me, what else can I do?!?

These were so very good. Basic and mellow flavors. A perfect structure, soft potatoes with a crunchy bottom layer. They were buttery without being overly greasy and they were chockfull of flavor.

 

Ingredients:

1 1/2 pound potatoes (equal sized)
1 grated garlic clove or 1/4 to 1/2 tsp garlic powder
chicken or vegetable broth
tiny cubes butter
minced parsley
pepper and salt

Optional: lime or lemon juice

 

Directions:
 
Get your BGE (or oven) going and keep it steady at 350Fº (175Cº).

Use an ovenproof dish. Place the peeled and washed (even-sized) potatoes in there and make sure they fit snuggly together.

Add the grated garlic or powder to the broth and heat it for a minute to get the flavors going. Pour hot broth in there until there’s about 1 inch of broth in the dish and sprinkle a little salt and pepper on top of the potatoes.

Place a tiny slice of butter on top of each potato. As the potatoes start to cook the butter will melt all over, it’s delicious. Not diet-friendly, but very tasty.

Maybe I should have called them BBQ Butter Potatoes? Oh well.
 

Place the dish in your BBQ or oven and give them 35 to 40 minutes. Check them for readiness.

I gave mine almost 10 minutes extra. Mainly because I really like a crunchy brown bottom-layer.

Sprinkle the potatoes with finely minced parsley and if you really want to up the flavors: squeeze some lime or lemon juice on top. It’s crazy good.

Note: a BBQ gives far more direct heat than an oven does, so when using your oven you will have to dice the potatoes or adjust the cooking time.

      Ok I have to ask, should I bake with lid off? I never really know whether to lid it or not to lid it!

      when cooking in the oven, i would pre-boil them for about 10 min, drain water, let cool for about 15, then proceed with recipe. also drizzling them from time to time with a little of the broth will keep them from getting hard on top. making these for T’giving!

      Do you have to turn them while in the oven?

      The taste was great, but I had similar problems using the oven method. I will try again on the grill, it was the crusty bottoms that made me want to try the recipe, but I couldn’t achieve it in the oven. It takes a lot longer than 40 mins and higher heat too in the oven. More like 425.

      How much chicken broth? Sorry if already stated. Just want to do it right. I usually buy my broth in bulk or make it myself.

      Love potato recipes. This one seems like it is a good one for my new “nu wave” haven’t tried it yet but wondered if anyone had done it in their Nu wave and what results and if any adjustments?

      Great recipe. I baked the potatoes for 40 minutes (fan) in electric oven , the bottom was not browned, but the top was nicely crunchy and golden .Next time I’ll add some rosemary to the broth. Thanks for tasty and inspiring recipe :-)

      Made tonight. Oven 450 because of chicken recipe. Cubed 1.5 lbs red potatoes about 3/4″, perfectly filled bottom of my red copper square pan, broth half covering. I put them on bottom rack then started breading chicken strips. Over all 25-30 minutes because the chicken was slow. Beautiful crusted taters, a hit with everyone.
