Grilled Sweet Potato Rounds With Gorgonzola Dip
What you need:
- 4 large sweet potatoes, scrubbed and pierced
- 1 cup crumbled Gorgonzola cheese
- 1/2 cup mayonnaise
- 3 tablespoons olive oil
- 2 tablespoons lemon juice
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 cup black pepper
- Minced chives
In a small bowl, mix the cheese, mayonnaise and olive oil and stir to combine. Refrigerate until serving. Place sweet potatoes in a microwave-safe plate and heat in the microwave (on high, uncovered) for 8 minutes, turning once. Allow to cool for a couple of minutes then slice into 1/2-inch rounds.
Brush both sides with oil then season with salt and pepper. Cook, covered, on a pre-heated grill over medium heat for 5 minutes or until browned. Transfer to serving plate, sprinkle with chives and serve with Gorgonzola dip.
Three-Cheese Grilled Potatoes
What you need:
- 6 large potatoes, sliced into 1/4-inch thick rounds
- 1/2 kg. sliced bacon, cooked and crumbled
- 2 medium onions, chopped
- 1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese, divided
- 1 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese, divided
- 1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
- 1/4 cup butter, cubed
- 1 tablespoon minced chives
- 2 teaspoons seasoned salt
- 1/2 teaspoon pepper
Prepare 2 18-inch squared of heavy duty aluminum foil. Coat each with cooking spray. Divide potatoes and onions into the two foils. In a bowl, combine Parmesan cheese, 3/4 cup each of the sharp and mozzarella cheese. Divide among the two foils then top each with bacon, butter, chives, salt and pepper.
Fold over the foil to create a packet. Cook on a pre-heated grill over medium-high heat until potatoes are tender and cooked through, about 35-40 minutes. When ready, remove from heat and carefully open the packets. Sprinkle with remaining sharp and mozzarella cheeses and allow to cool for a few minutes before serving.
Potatoes are the ultimate comfort food and they’ll be even more comforting when cooked on the grill with the smoky goodness and taste! Whether you’re serving for adults or kids at a party or just having some afternoon fun, try these satisfying grilled potato recipes at your next backyard barbecue!
