I am excited to be here at My Rays of Sunshine to share this fun and delicious recipe with you. Many thanks to Chastity for having me!

I have one word to describe these potatoes: WOWOWOWOWOW!

OK, so that’s not technically a word, but it was exactly what I said when I tried these potatoes. If you want a side dish that will blow ’em away at your barbecue, you have found the right recipe! This zingy, flavorful dish will steal the spotlight and have your guests coming back for seconds and thirds. I could hardly stop eating them, they are that addictive!

I had never grilled potatoes before, except as an item on a kabob. It was great to add that subtle smokey flavor by cooking these on the grill (plus it keeps the kitchen cooler!), although you could also roast them in the oven if needed. If you want to try these in the oven, I would probably set the temperature at 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). I have not actually tried it, though, so let me know how they turn out if you try it that way!
