5 from 19 reviews

Easy and tasty Grilled Potatoes with herbs are cooked in a grill basket or aluminum foil right on top of your charcoal or gas grill.  They are the perfect side for all your summer grilling and barbecue recipes.


  • 2 lbs. Yukon Gold Potatoes 
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon dried rosemary
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon onion powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt (or to taste)
  • ¼ teaspoon fresh ground black pepper (or to taste)


  1. Wash, dry and slice your potatoes about 1/3 inch thick. Drizzle with the vegetable oil and stir to coat.  Sprinkle with the rosemary, thyme, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and pepper.  Stir to coat.
  2. Preheat the grill to 350-375 degrees. Load the potatoes into the grilling basket and place on the grill over indirect heat.  Watch for flare up and flip the potatoes several times rotating the grill basket to keep the potatoes cooking evenly.  Cook until fork tender then carefully remove the grill basket from the grill using oven mitts or pot holders.
  3. If desired season with more salt and pepper to taste.


  • Small Yukon Gold or red potatoes work best for this recipe.  After washing and drying slice about 1/3 inch thick.
  • You can use vegetable, canola, or olive oil.  My personal preference is vegetable oil because it has a higher smoking point and it really crisps up and browns the potatoes.
  • This recipe works best with dried herbs.  Fresh herbs add a bright delicious and aromatic freshness but they are best added toward the end or at the end of the cooking time.  Feel free to add a sprinkle of fresh herbs at the end.
  • Do not fret if you do not have a grill basket.  Simply make 4 aluminum foil packets and divide the potatoes evenly between them.  Place the packets on the grill over indirect heat flipping and rotating several times.
  • These potatoes are best served straight off the grill while they are crispy and hot.
  • Use great care when removing the grill basket or foil packets from the grill. Oven gloves will help get the job done.
