Grilled Lemon Pepper Potatoes with Sour Cream and Chive Sauce

This is a simple, yet tasty little side dish, that comes with a delicious little sauce... but you'd knew I'd say that, didn't you?  Don't worry if you don't want to grill these, you can easily throw them in a pan and bake them.  Actually, you might get a little more crispiness to the potatoes by baking them.  And my suggestion... bake at 400-450 degrees F for the best results - and don't forget to flip them too so you both sides get nice and brown.  Either way you decide to cook them, they'll turn out to be a side dish the whole family will love!

Printable Recipe 
1 lbs yellow or red baby potatoes
1- 2 Tablespoons olive oil
lemon pepper seasoning
1/4 cup sour cream
1 teaspoon lemon juice
2-3 teaspoons chopped chives
salt and pepper
pinch of sugar

Slice potatoes in half or quarter.  (before I seasoned the potatoes, I put them in a bowl with a tablespoon of water, covered them with plastic and microwaved them for about 2-3 minutes...just to get the cooking processes started - takes less time on the grill that way)  Toss with olive oil and season liberally with lemon pepper seasoning.  Place on sheet of heavy duty foil; fold into a packet and crimp to seal.  Place on preheated 350 degree grill and grill for 15 minutes, flipping once.

Meanwhile, in a small bowl, mix together the sour cream, lemon juice and chives together.  Stir in a pinch of sugar.  Season with salt and pepper.  Cover and refrigerate until ready to use.

Remove potatoes from grill and carefully open the foil packet.  Season potatoes with salt.  Serve with sauce and enjoy!

I can't tell you how amazing those look! Potatoes - one of my favorite things, and these look delicious!

That is Brilliant! I'd most likely go for the oven route as you suggest, for extra crispiness. I'll be happy munching just on those potatoes and a bowl of sour cream :)

Grilled potatoes is our new favorite way to cook them, but I rarely think to use lemon pepper on things. I think the sauce sounds like the perfect go-with for the potatoes.

Dear Jenn, I think these will be delicious however one decides to cook them. I love side potatoes! blessings dear, Catherine xo

My favorite way for cooking crispy potatoes, on the grill or oven, is using a cast iron griddle that has been well preheated at 450f. That gets them crispy and golden on the outside and soft in the middle.

Either way, these look great to me and I like the seasoning.
