Grill-Fried Potatoes

These potato wedges get magically creamy in the center and crisp on the outside as if they were deep-fried. But--surprise!--they're grilled for a healthier, easier and way-less-messy (but equally delicious) steak fry.

Prep Time:
40 mins
Total Time:
40 mins
16 wedges


  • 4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) unsalted butter

  • ¼ cup canola oil

  • 2 large russet potatoes, sliced into 8 lengthwise spears each

  • 6 cloves garlic, peeled

  • 2 sprigs fresh rosemary

  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt

  • ¼ teaspoon ground pepper


  1. Place a rimmed baking sheet on a grill; preheat to medium-low (about 325 degrees F).

  2. Add butter and oil to the pan and heat until melted and sizzling. Add potatoes, garlic and rosemary and cook, turning the potatoes and garlic often and adjusting the heat as necessary, until tender and golden, 20 to 30 minutes.

  3. Discard the rosemary. Using tongs, transfer the potatoes and garlic to a serving dish and season with salt and pepper.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
