When the weather gets hot in New York, I like to take the cooking outside. Grilling is usually my husband’s job, but lately I’ve been having fun exploring the many things you can make outside on the grill all on my own, it’s really not that hard!

Take these fries, who says you can’t make fries outside on the grill? They turn out crispy and delicious without deep frying or heating up the kitchen and you can even grill your turkey burgers along side them.

Yes, you can have your carbs, just have them in moderation. Serve them with some homemade ketchup and enjoy!!

Guilt-free crispy grilled potato "fries" made right outside on the grill!
Prep: 15 mins
Cook: 10 mins
Total: 25 mins
Yield: 2 servings
Serving Size: 1 potato


  • 2 13 oz total medium russet potatoes, washed
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • sea salt and fresh cracked pepper


  • Preheat grill to medium-high heat (an indoor grill would work too).
  • Cut potatoes into 1/4-inch thick slices. I used a fancy crinkle knife with ridges but straight cuts are fine.
  • Toss the potatoes with olive oil. Add salt, and pepper to your taste.
  • Reduce heat on the grill to medium and lay the potatoes slices straight onto the grill; close the lid.
  • Cook until the potatoes are golden on one side, about 6 to 10 minutes, making sure they don't burn and adjusting flame accordingly.
  • Turn and cook until tender inside when pierced with a fork, but slightly crisp and golden brown on the outside.
  • Remove from grill, and serve immediately.

  1. It’s great to see someone posting a grilled potatoes recipe similar to the way my father and I have been doing it since the early 70s. I love the crinkle cut idea. Our recipe calls for a straight cut and (any) Italian salad dressing for basting. We serve them with sour cream. I believe our recipe originated from a old 60s Betty Crocker BBQ cookbook. A variation I started several years ago is to arrange the finished potatoes on a baking sheet, covering them with shredded cheddar cheese, and melt the cheese under a broiler. Top with bacon bits and chopped green onions – BBQ potato skins!

  2. These are wonderful!  So easy !!!  I never met a potato I did not like and now I don’t have to feel guilty about “fries”.

  5. Just made these…even my hubby (who's a picky eater) ate them. I got inspired and made grilled eggplant too (had one that was about to go bad). I paired with your Pepper Steak Stir Fry recipe…Delicious!

  6. Ohh these look so yum! My hubby loves french fries, but we all know ther are not the healthiest option! This looks like a great compromise 🙂 Thnaks for sharing!..

  7. These look great. I found a new Lawry's seasoned salt at the store that's chili/garlic seasoning. I'm going to try it with that.

  8. Gina, these were great! Grill was tied up with london broil, so I used the oven-35 min at 425 and flipped them halfway. Big hit! Thank you; new fan here!
