Grilled Potatoes with BBQ Sauce, Rosemary and Bacon -George Foreman Grill or Outdoors

I found this recipe on the Sweet Baby Ray's site and just knew it would be different and fun! Although I didn't exactly follow instructions because I used what I had on hand and didn't have any bacon??? But I think there's a lot of wiggle room here. I chose to use my George Foreman Grill and it did a pretty good job with the potatoes! The BBQ sauce and rosemary worked well together and of course bacon makes everything better... Note to self: pick some up. If you're looking for a side dish with a twist folks, I think you'll like these Grilled Potatoes with BBQ Sauce, Rosemary and Bacon.
Tip: My experience with the George and other contact grills has been that it's the upper plate that creates the grill marks. The lower plate gets wet from the juices and kind of steams more than sears. 

This recipe was written up for baby potatoes to be skewered and grilled. My red potatoes were bigger. I didn't make kabobs and just tossed the cubed potatoes onto the George-yea, you don't want to do that. Next time I would slice them about 1/2" thick and grill the slices. They'd be easier to corral and turn. A grill pan on an outdoor grill would work really well.

Grilled Potatoes with BBQ Sauce, Rosemary and Bacon-from Sweet Baby Rays
1/4 C of your favorite BBQ Sauce (they suggest Honey Chipotle SBR's and I wish I had some!)
24 baby potatoes
1/2 C bacon, cooked and chopped
2 Tblsp fresh rosemary, chopped
Olive oil for brushing
S&P to taste
  1. Add potatoes to pot of cold water, bring to a boil and gently simmer about 15 minutes or until the potatoes are tender but not mushy.
  2. Cool potatoes quickly in cold water.
  3. Skewer potatoes, brush with olive oil, sprinkle with S&P and grill over medium/high heat until you get sear marks, turn for more grill marks.
  4. Brush with BBQ Sauce and grill for a couple seconds to set the sauce.
  5. Sprinkle with rosemary and bacon and enjoy!
Eat well and have a happy day:@)
