Grilling Baby Potatoes

Baby potatoes are an excellent alternative to grilled full-sized potatoes because they no need to peel the skin after the grill or before cooking.

To ensure your baby potato skewers turn outright, you’ll want to grill them whole evenly on all sides. This is best done in one of two ways: either by roasting or grilling.

Grilling spiced potatoes is more easily accessible than roasting. Additionally, grilling provides tenderness and gorgeous color to the potatoes that are just being born.

Whichever way you go, make sure that each side of each potato gets equal time in contact with heat—especially if you opt for grilling whole baby potatoes, which will cook faster than sliced varieties.

Baby potatoes are perfect for skewering. They are smaller than regular potatoes, making them easier to handle while grilling, and they take longer to cook, so you have more time to prepare your other skewered items without over-cooking your potatoes.

In addition, their thin skin means that if you plan on grilling them (as opposed to boiling or baking), you don’t have to worry about peeling first—the skin will come off easily after grilling!

Lastly, baby potatoes come in various colors—purple/blue, yellow, red/pink/white, orange—which means that they look great together on a serving platter.

The grilled baby potatoes pairs with other roasted vegetables and even fruit for a pretty extra presentation.
