Grilled Hassleback Potatoes

Yield: 5 servings | Prep time: 15 minutes | Cook time: 30 minutes | Total time: 45 minutes


Try this fun way to cook potatoes! These vegan hassleback potatoes on the grill are a great way to cook potatoes outside if you're in a small kitchen during the summer. Throw some mushrooms on the grill while you're cooking the potatoes and you've got yourself a hearty dinner!


  • 5 medium-sized golden potatoes

  • 3 tbsp melted vegan butter

  • 1 tsp garlic powder

  • 1/2 tsp black pepper

  • Salt to taste

  • Vegan sour cream for topping

  • Scallions for topping


  • Preheat your grill to about 450° F.

  • Cut your potatoes into thin slices, leaving about 1/4 inch at the bottom un-sliced. The slices don't have to be perfectly even. ○ To prevent slicing completely through the potato, you can place the potato between the handles of two wooden spoons or chopsticks.

  • Microwave the potatoes for 4-5 minutes to soften.

  • Meanwhile, in a small bowl, mix the melted butter together with the garlic, pepper, and salt.

  • Place each potato on it's own piece of heavy-duty tin foil (careful, they will be hot).

  • Brush the potatoes with the melted butter and spice mixture. Try to get the butter to go down a few of the slices. Don't over-do it on the butter, you don't want them swimming in it.

  • Wrap the tin foil tightly around the potato.

  • Place the potatoes on the upper shelf of your grill (or turn the heat down to low and place them directly on the grill).

  • Grill for about 20 minutes, or until the potatoes begin to get tender (you can open up the tin foil to check if needed).

  • Turn the grill to light-medium heat.

  • Remove the potatoes from the tin foil and place them, bottoms down, directly on the grill for about 5 minutes.

  • Flip the potatoes over and grill for another 5 minutes, or until the tops are browned and crispy. ○ The butter should have been absorbed by now, so there should be no problem flipping them over.

  • Once they are nice and crispy, remove them from the grill.

  • Let them cool for a bit, then top with sour cream and scallions.

  • Serve with a side of mushrooms or other veggies, couscous, pasta, or rice.


Tips and Tricks:

  • These can also be done in the oven. Heat your oven to 450° F, follow all the directions to prep the potatoes, then bake for about 45-50 minutes. You can broil them on high for 2-3 minutes at the end if the tops need to get more crispy.
