How do you cook roasted potatoes on a Traeger grill?
A cast iron skillet is your best friend in this situation. That photo above took less than five minutes to put together. I bought a bag of baby potatoes – sprinkled over olive oil, salt and pepper – then pulled off some sprigs of fresh herbs – and that’s it! I was grilling chicken thighs and decided to pop these on at the same time. Everything was done in 35 minutes! (You could even throw some carrots in as well and have a complete meal!)
I love my Traeger grill! I got it a couple of years ago (thanks to the folks at Traeger!) and it holds a lot. I think this one can hold four chickens! (Who cooks FOUR chickens at once?!) I grilled up five pounds of bone-in chicken thighs and these roasted potatoes in just 35 minutes and they were delicious!
