I originally started this blog as a place to store tried and true recipes for my family. It didn't take long to discover how supportive and fun the blog community was and I became hooked! I rarely create my own recipes, but I still hope you'll enjoy the recipes that I find and tweak a bit.
I was really intrigued with this recipe because I have never thought to grill potatoes. I also liked it because half of them were sweet potatoes. Unfortunately, I was not able to find sweet potatoes at the market that day, but the fries were still delicious and full of flavor. I can't wait to try them with sweet potatoes next time.
My only advice when making these is either keep your grill at low heat, or place your coals at one end of your grill and your potatoes at the other end. They'll soften better without all the charring. We learned that after the first batch, and then second batch came out much better.
How is everyone's summer shaping up? My hubby gets two whole months off, so we've been doing everything possible to soak up our time together, as well seeing as much of the east as possible. It's been heavenly! I hope you are all having a wonderful summer and I'm loving all the summer recipes out there!
