Prepare Before You Start

Before you start the process to grill small potatoes, there are certain things that you need to keep at hand at the ready.

  • Skewers - If you use metal skewers, keep them clean and ready. If you are using bamboo skewers, you need to soak them, drain them, and freeze them. This needs to be done an hour before the cooking process.
  • Barbeque Tongs - Any kind that you generally use should do the job.
  • Mixing Bowl - Size depends on the number of potatoes you are using. For 1.5 lbs, a medium-sized mixing bowl should do the job.

The Cooking Process

Step 1 - Coat Your Potatoes

First, take your mixing bowl and put your potatoes in it. Add oil of your selection and toss them, so they are all evenly coated with a thin layer of oil. Do not pour excessive oil, or it will become too greasy.

Step 2 - Grill Them

Sort out evenly sized potatoes for each skewer. This will even out the cooking. Place it on the grill in medium flame. Cook until they are crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. The ideal texture.

Step 3 - Seasoning  

Drizzle oil if you like, along with salt and pepper. Enjoy with your favorite dip.


Do not forget to clean the grill after you are done with the cooking process. Small potatoes are tasty, but they are also very nutritious, so do not hold back on them.
