Tips for choosing creamer potatoes
- Creamer potatoes come in white, yellow or red varieties, choose your favorite.
- Look for plump potatoes, do not choose potatoes with shriveled skin or potatoes that are beginning to sprout.
- Avoid potato that have a “green” appearance. Those are not quite ripe and will not have good flavor.
- Choosing potatoes of a uniform size will ensure they will all be done at the same time.
The beauty in this dish is the simplicity! Here are the simple steps to make this delicious side dish!
What is the best method to store potatoes?
- Store potatoes in a cool dark place – not the refrigerator! The cold temperatures of the fridge will turn the starch of the potatoes into sugar. They become sweet and can discolor when cooked.
- Potatoes will keep at room temperature for up to two weeks.
- Best bet? Buy as many as you’ll use in a week.
Steps to make seasoned potatoes
- Preheat your pellet grill.
- Spray the foil pan with non-stick cooking spray.
- Add all of the ingredients into the pan – mix well and onto the grill it goes.
- Stir every 15 minutes
How long does it take to cook the potato?
Only about 45 minutes! Just about the time it takes to put together a few wonderful eats to serve alongside!
You’ll definitely want to make a double batch of these potatoes. Leftover potatoes are great for breakfast, lunch or dinner! Adding leftover potatoes to a quiche, frittata or breakfast casserole is a great way to stretch out a meal and adding additional flavor and texture.
