Grilled Mashed Potatoes Recipe

Grilled Mashed Potatoes

Mashed potatoes with grilled potatoes. Delish!

I’d like to introduce you all to the Klondike Rose potato.

I’m sure you are familiar with Russet potatoes, baby red potatoes…what they look like, how to cook with them. But don’t pass these guys up in the produce department. I love that you don’t have to peel them because their skin is really thin (and also gives great texture to mashed potatoes, like these here!) Once cooked, they are creamy, smooth and have a buttery texture. As you’ll see below, they have a creamy golden center with a rose colored skin. They are great for pretty much every cooking type (roasting, mashing, baking, and grilling)…so that’s why I decided to grill and mash them :)

Here’s how it goes…

Take the buttery Klondike Rose potatoes.

Quarter them.

Season them with Johnny’s Seasoning Salt and some olive oil.

Grill them in a grill basket.

Mash with your favorite mix-ins.

We all LOVED loved l.o.v.e.d. these potatoes. The smokiness from the grill and the seasoning salt made for a spectacular mashed potato side dish!

Also…there is a coupon available right now on the Klondike website…be sure and print it before you head out to get your sack of potatoes! Yay for savings!

mayo and garlic.. it makes them super creamy and yummy

Mary Prevost April 23, 2013 at 12:06 pm

Instead of sour cream – I use cream cheese (and various seasonings depending on the meal and my mood – anything from garlic, to bacon, to shredded cheese – or all the above). I find it adds basically the same flavor AND keeps the potatoes nice n’ fluffy yet “thick” – never too thin!

Lesa April 23, 2013 at 12:20 pm

we use different things for different meals, we use bacon bits, onions, ranch seasoning, or even shredded cheese
