Cheesy Potatoes on the Grill

It was a beautiful weekend here in my little corner of northeast Oklahoma, lots of sunshine, clear blue skies, and temps a balmy 75°F. Just perfect for dragging out the BBQ for what will probably be the last time this year.

This is not terribly exciting, it's only a spud recipe, but they are pretty darned good. The cheesy potatoes, were cooked on the grill alongside some chicken on the ribs. We also have some rainbow chard growing in our garden at the moment, so I sautéed some in butter and garlic.

Cheesy Potatoes on the Grill (or in the oven if you prefer)


3 large russet potatoes, thinly sliced about 1/8 inch
1 small onion, thinly sliced
½ cup mozzarella, shredded
¼ cup sharp cheddar, shredded
Black pepper, to taste
2/3 cup milk, warmed
1 tablespoon butter, melted
2 tablespoons Parmesan cheese, shredded

  • Pre-heat grill to low, or oven to 425°F
  • Grease an 8 x 8-inch foil tray (or baking dish) with butter.
  • Arrange smaller potato pieces in layers in bottom of dish, top with a layer of onions, then a layer of cheese, and add pepper to taste. Layer larger sized potatoes on top. Pour in the warm milk, brush top with melted butter, and sprinkle over the Parmesan.
  • Bake on grill for about 50 minutes, then put the foil pan under a hot broiler for 2 –3 minutes to brown the surface.
  • Or bake in the oven for 45-50 minutes. These potatoes usually brown okay in the oven without recourse to the broiler, but if they don’t you know what to do.

I'm not a huge potato fan, especially considering the fact that I was born in Idaho. This is one of my favorites though, milk, cheese, potaotes, a perfect combination. I can't believe you made this recipe on the grill, I would have never thought of that, nice work! Also, I'm very jeleous about your amazing weather, it's been cold, dark and dreary here in Portland!

barbeque? barbeque? I can't remember the last time- the weather has been so foul. We have a lovely one here in Northern Ireland but have no chance of using it- it is freezing cold!!
