French Onion Grilled Potatoes
The 4th of July is right around the corner, and I am already “chomping at the bit” to grill these french onion grilled potatoes.
In fact, who really needs a holiday to enjoy good food? We may need to grill these tonight. As a vegetarian, by completely removing a food group, I have become pretty inventive with my meals. Sometimes they turn out to be complete disasters, in which case I may write about a few of my disasters to warn you what NOT to do. After all, it is more fun to hear and learn from other people’s mistakes rather than doing it yourself!
So while this was an invention, I found these french onion grilled potatoes were a delicious success.
I want to credit my mom for thinking it up, in place of ingredients we didn’t have. The next time I use this recipe, I will be either adding more onion soup dry mix or using tin foil. I could not get enough of that french onion flavor. While in these photos we used skewers, I could see the advantage of using tin foil in order to keep the potatoes soaking in that tasty french onion flavor while sitting on the grill.
1 packet of Lipton French onion soup dry mix
1/4 c. Olive oil
1) Chop up the potatoes into small, bite-sized cubes.
2) Combine 1/4 c. of olive oil and the packet of Lipton French onion soup dry mix in a bowl and mix well.
3) Cook the potato cubes throughly until soft.
4) Brush the mixture over the cooked potato cubes, and grill’em up!
Here are the potatoes as they were done step by step.
4) Grill, turning skewers every few minutes for 15 minutes.
The mix that stayed on the potatoes were able to get very crisp.
And they are finished! The ever so yummy french onion grilled potatoes.
For a little upcoming 4th of July inspiration, I “dressed up” the skewered french onion grilled potatoes by putting them on the adequate plate ware, along with my mexican grilled corn.
Join me next week for a recipe on how to make Mexican grilled corn. These potatoes and the grilled corn are the perfect addition to a 4th of July cookout with vegetarians and health enthusiasts. If you have a vegetarian coming to the party, fear not! These french onion grilled potatoes are sure to make your mouths water, and are an easy addition to any meal.
