Crispy No-Fry Potato's on the Traeger Grill
I recently began experimenting with things to cook on the Traeger grill which does not involve a huge hunk of meat.
Crispy No-Fry Potato's on the Traeger Grill are fun, delicious, and make an amazing side dish for almost any meal.
What's so cool about this dish is that you are making already crispy potato wedges even more crunchy and delicious. We use dehydrated potato flakes or fake potatoes to add that additional pop of crunchiness.
The Traeger Grill already resembles an oven. One of the benefits of cooking with a pellet grill like the Traeger is how simple it is to adjust the temperature.
Similar to the oven in your kitchen, pellet grill temperatures are simple to adjust. Just set it to your desired temperature and let the technology do the work.
Pellet grills give the extra added benefit of adding a smoky flavor to your foods. I often enjoy using fruitwood pellets like Applewood for this dish. Fruitwood pellets also are delicious for most meats, and especially good for cooking ribs or adding flavor to these smoked meatloaf burgers.
These Crispy No-Fry Potato's on the Traeger Grill should soon become a favorite with your guests!
These crispy potatoes cook up wonderfully on the Traeger Grill. The Traeger adds just the right amount of smoke flavor that your friends and family will devour this dish in no time.
- 4-6 medium-sized russet potatoes
- ½ cup cooking oil
- ¼ cup garlic salt
- 2 tablespoons smoked paprika
- 2 tablespoons black pepper
- ⅔ cup fake potato flakes
Potatoes on the Traeger Grill
Cut potatoes in half and then into eighths making them into Jo-Jo style wedges.
In a large salad bowl, add the potato wedges and oil.
Toss, stir or fold the wedges in the oil until liberally coated. Using a bowl which is two thirds bigger than your pile of potato's makes for easy coating and much less mess.
After the potatoes are coated with oil sprinkle the seasonings and coat well making sure all the flavors are evenly distributed. Set aside.
Pre-heat your Traeger grill or whichever grill you are using to around 400F.
Just before cooking, sprinkle on up to the ⅔ cup of potato flakes on to the seasoned potato wedges. You want to coat the wedges as evenly as possible with the potato flakes and get them to adhere to each of the wedges saturated in oil.
Spread the wedges onto a foiled baking sheet safe for your grill taking care to keep as many of the flakes on the wedges as possible.
Grill for 25-35 minutes or until the potato has become golden brown, cooked thru, and developed a crispy, crackling exterior.
