Directions for Grilled Potatoes:
1) Wash and dry potatoes.
2) Cut potatoes in half, lengthwise. Then, cut each half in halves or thirds, depending on the thickness of the potato. Each potato slice should be about 1/4″ thick, but having your slices equal in thickness is more important.
3) Toss potato slices with olive oil, salt and pepper and any other seasonings you like.
4) Place on preheated grill for 5-6 minutes per side.
5) In the last 3 minutes, top potato slices with cheese.
6) Remove from grill when cheese is melted and potatoes are crisp on the outside, tender on the inside.
7) Garnish with chopped green onion, sour cream and smoked paprika.
