Fries without any frying…

Join us in all the fun:

pot done-hyep…you read that right.  I give you fries all done with any frying, even better they are primarily done on the grill.

Fries any way, anytime…

I love potatoes any way you give them to me, but I really, really love fries.  I mean is there anything better then a hot batch of fast food fries?  Maybe the non-fast food version…but still fries.

I am that girl that will actually crave them, and The Hubby is that amazing guy who will actually go get them when I want them…he is so awesome.

As much as I love fries I am not picky about the variety of fry…I love the original version and I LOVE the sweet potato version as well.  If a restaurant offers both I am a happy, happy girl.

Get the grill going…

pot on grillAs I mentioned above I love fries, but in the summer I LOVE grilled fries.  There is just something so delicious about a charred fry paired with your favorite grilled dish (such as this BBQ chicken, or these burgers).

For our latest grilled fry adventure I went with both russet potatoes and sweet potatoes.  The Hubby is a more traditional fry guy, so I wanted to make sure we had a little for him and a little (more) for me.

After a quick microwave, to just cook them a little, these potatoes are ready to cut into wedges, season a little and then get to grilling.  For these fries I kept the seasoning simple…but feel free to customize your seasoning blend as you like.

On the grill let the fries get a little char before flipping, the extra flavor really takes them to the next level.

Once they are done serve them immediately for the best results.

  • 4 large potatoes of your choice - I used 2 russet potatoes and 2 sweet potatoes
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil spray
  • 3 teaspoons salt
  • 2 teaspoons black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder


  • Preheat grill to medium heat
  • Line baking sheet with parchment paper
  • Wash & pat dry potatoes
  • Wrap each in a damp paper towel
  • Microwave on high, in 2 minute intervals (about 6 total for russet, and 4-5 for sweet potatoes), until you can press into the potato when squeezed, but make sure it is still a little firm, you will be cutting them into wedges
  • Remove potatoes from microwave and when they cool enough to handle cut each potato into 8-10 wedges
  • Lay wedges onto prepared pan
  • Spray with olive oil spray, or drizzle with olive oil, gently tossing to make sure each side is coated well
  • Sprinkle salt, pepper, chili powder and garlic powder over wedges, tossing again to make sure each are coated with seasoning
  • Place directly onto grill, or onto grill pan, and cook for 4-5 minutes per side, or until potatoes are lightly charred and tender
  • Remove and serve
  • ENJOY!!

I love sauces with my fries and served these with a spicy sauce, but they are also great on their own.  I think The Hubby needs to grill some of these up tonight.  It just seems like that kinda day.
