Grilled Baby Potatoes with Herb Butter

These grilled baby potatoes are the perfect side to any summer BBQ. They’re roasted in herb butter, so they’re packed with flavor, and they’re nice and crispy on the outside.


  • 1 kg baby potatoes
  • 100 g butter
  • 1 tbsp. chopped thyme
  • 1 tbsp. chopped rosemary
  • 1 tbsp. chopped sage
  • Salt and pepper


1. Preheat the grill to high heat.

2. In a small saucepan, melt the butter over low heat. Add the thyme, rosemary, sage, and a pinch of salt and pepper. Stir to combine.

3. Cut any large potatoes in half so they’re all roughly the same size. Toss the potatoes in the herb butter until they’re well coated.

4. Grill the potatoes for 10-15 minutes, until they’re tender and cooked through. Serve hot.

Potential changes & improvements

If you’re looking for a little more flavor, you could try adding some garlic to the herb butter. You could also roast the potatoes in the oven instead of grilling them, if you prefer. Just toss them in the herb butter and bake at 200C for 20-25 minutes.

What other food it works well with

These potatoes would go great with grilled chicken or steak. They’d also be delicious with roasted vegetables like carrots or Brussels sprouts.

Common Mistakes

One mistake people often make when grilling potatoes is not cutting them small enough. If they’re too big, they’ll take forever to cook through. Another mistake is not using enough butter, which will result in dry, bland potatoes. Be sure to coat them well!
