Grilled potato wedges are yummy when they are slightly charred and crispy on the outside while remaining soft and creamy inside.


  • Baking potatoes (Russet or Yukon Gold are two good ones)
  • Olive oil
  • Kosher salt
  • Cumin
  • Freshly ground black pepper


  1. Wash the potatoes but do not peel them.
  2. Cut the potatoes, lengthwise, into wedges of the same size. (about 1/2 inch thick should be about right.
  3. Place the potatoes in a bowl and cover them with cold water; let them soak for about 20 minutes. This will make the potato wedges more crispy when grilled.
  4. While the potato wedges are soaking, prepare your grill for cooking on medium heat.
  5. Drain the water from the potato wedges and pat them dry on paper towels.
  6. Toss the potato wedges in olive oil, sprinkle with a little cumin and Kosher salt and black pepper to taste.
  7. Arrange the potato wedges on the grill so that they are not touching.
  8. Grill the potatoes for about 5 minutes, turn each wedge and continue to grill and turn the potato wedges for about 5 minutes on each side...about 20 minutes total grilling time.
  9. Don't allow the potatoes to become too dark.
