Herb Buttered New Potatoes-Hot Off The Grill
Prep. Time: 15 mins
Cooking Time: 1 hr
Yield: 6 potatoes
1/2 cup (125 mL) butter, softened
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tbsp (15 mL) Dijon mustard
1 tbsp (15 mL) white wine vinegar
1 tbsp (15 mL) fresh thyme, rosemary, dill or sage, chopped
6 medium (about 5 oz / 150 g each) red or white new potatoes
6 fresh bay leaves, halved
6 sprigs fresh thyme, rosemary, dill or sage
Beat together butter, garlic, mustard, vinegar and thyme. Add salt and pepper to taste. Set aside.
Cut each potato into thin (1/4 inch / 6 mm) slices, but do not cut all the way through; fan slices slightly and insert a couple of bay leaf pieces into each.
Place potatoes in centre of 12 inch (30 cm) squares of heavy duty foil. Top each with 1 tablespoon (15 mL) of the herb butter and a sprig of fresh herb; wrap loosely.
Place foil packets on grill and cook, with lid closed, directly over low heat 50 to 60 minutes or until fork tender. Remove bay leaves and herb sprigs. Serve potatoes with remaining herb butter.
Add some sliced onion in between the potato slices. Yum!
