These tender Grilled Dijon Potatoes are perfect for any outdoor celebration, and are the perfect complement to your cookout meal! This recipe is sponsored by Kingsford®, all opinions are my own, as always.
I know you aren't surprised, it is Memorial Day today and I am posting another grilling recipe. What can I say? When the weather heats up, I grill a lot! However, these tenderly delicious Grilled Dijon Potatoes weren't grilled up because it is Memorial Day, I grilled them up last week to celebrate "First Nice Weather in a Week Day". That is also one of my favorite holidays.
The truth is, you don't need an important reason for a big celebration. Just head to Walmart, pick up a lot of Kingsford charcoal and find your own reason to celebrate! "Happy Got Done with Work Early Day"? Fire up the grill! "Happy Good Hair Day"? Fire up the grill! "Happy Child Didn't Get Detention Day"? Fire up the grill!
Life is a lot more exciting when you celebrate the little things!
Of course, if you are going to be grilling out a lot. I would be remiss if I didn't provide you a few great recipes! Check out my grilling recipes to find your new favorite! Though, if I can offer a suggestion, you can't go wrong with grilled brats that are finished in a classic Wisconsin Beer Bath!
These Grilled Dijon Potatoes are the perfect side dish to compliment whatever you are grilling. They are dead simple to grill too because they are par-cooked in boiling water prior to setting on the grill. Why? Par-cooking the potatoes first helps them grill easier so their cooking progress can simply be monitored visually. They also will cook faster, so they don't take over the entire grill all afternoon.
I also coat the Grilled Dijon Potatoes in a mixture of mayo and mustard prior to grilling. This not only helps keeps the potatoes moist during cooking, but also add flavor too.
Grilled Dijon Potatoes
- 2 lbs red potatoes, sliced ⅓" thick
- 3 tablespoon mayo
- 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
- 1 teaspoon salt
- black pepper to taste
- Bring large pot of water to a boil then add the potatoes. Par-cook till exterior is tender but inside is still slightly firm. ~5 minutes
- Drain potatoes from water and add to a large bowl with mayo, Dijon, salt and pepper. Toss to coat.
- Place potatoes on a grill grate directly over coals. Monitor to prevent burning and flip potatoes when turning golden brown.
- Potatoes are done when exterior is cooked on both sides.
- If the interior is still too firm, set them over indirect heat to continue cooking without risk of burning.
