Plated + Served: Grilled Potato Planks


Want to make a potato side dish that’ll be faster than baked, healthier than fried… and a heckovalot easier to pull together than a potato salad?

Grilled Potato Planks.

Hey, you’re already grilling the rest of the meal, so why not throw on these babies and liven up dinner?

I like them with just a drizzle of good olive oil and a blast of coarse sea salt, but the kids load them with grated cheese. Heck, now that I’m thinking about it, give them a schmear of sour cream or chopped herbs just before serving.

Oh, and IF  you have any leftover, heat ‘em in the microwave the next morning and top with a poached egg.

And you thought it was just a potato….
