FOOD FUN: Grilled Potato Skewers (Potatoes On A Stick!)

Grilled potatoes on a stick: What fun!

We expanded on this idea from Stix Mediterranean Grill in New York City and created this recipe, which was a hit on Memorial Day.

Stix flavored the skewers Greek-stye, with crumbled feta cheese and oregano (shown in the photo).

We made them more colorful, alternating the potato slices with copacetic ingredients: grape tomatoes, gherkins, and olives. You can add whatever you like, from colorful bell pepper strips to pearl onions. For kids of all ages, how about frankfurter chunks?

We left the skins on the potatoes: better nutrition and no peeling time!
 
 
RECIPE: GRILLED POTATO SKEWERS

Ingredients

  • Yukon Gold or other small potatoes
  • “Alternates”: cherry or grape tomatoes, gherkins, hot dogs, olives (pitted), pearl onions (parboil for softeness)
  • Seasonings: cracked black pepper, minced chives, oregano, red pepper flakes, smoked salt
  • Optional dip (we mixed Greek yogurt with grainy mustard)
  •  
    Preparation

    1. BOIL potatoes to an al dente consistency.

    2. DRAIN and set aside. When cool to touch, halve the potatoes and thread onto skewers, alternate potatoes with cherry tomatoes, gherkins, olives, etc.

    3. GRILL and serve hot, with or without a dipping sauce.
