Grilled Parmesan Potatoes are an excellent side dish for a hot summer day. The grill is the perfect alternative when it's so warm you can't even dream of turning on the oven. Roast the hearty parmesan and garlic potatoes in foil bags on the grill along with your grilled steak, chicken or burgers. The seasoned potatoes cook to perfection on a charcoal or gas grill in just 20 to 30 minutes.

Seasoned potatoes include butter or olive oil, garlic, Italian spices, and Parmesan cheese. Instead of the Italian seasoning, you can use fresh or dried herbs like rosemary or thyme, or add a pinch of cayenne pepper or crushed red pepper flakes for some spiciness. If you don't have fresh garlic, you can substitute about 1 1/2 to 2 teaspoons of garlic powder.

You can easily scale up this recipe for a large group or scale down the recipe if you're cooking for two. Grilled parmesan potatoes are an excellent choice for a neighborhood barbecue, Memorial Day, or Fourth of July meal.
