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!
Grilled Lemon Pepper Potatoes with Sour Cream and Chive Sauce
Adapted from Food Network Magazine
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!
