This awesome and easy grilled potatoes recipe starts with the convenience of canned whole baby white potatoes. Skewered Potatoes on a Stick is a fun and simple go-along for any of our cookout favorites.

What You'll Need

  • 8 wooden or metal skewers
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 tablespoon paprika
  • 2 (15-ounce) cans whole white potatoes, drained

What to Do

  1. Preheat grill to medium-high heat. If using wooden skewers, soak them in water for 15 to 20 minutes.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine oil, salt, pepper, cumin, and paprika; mix well. Add potatoes and toss to coat evenly. Place potatoes on skewers, reserving any oil mixture.
  3. Grill potatoes 5 to 7 minutes, turning them over occasionally and basting with reserved oil mixture.


To add even more flavor, go ahead and brush the potatoes with your favorite barbecue sauce or Dijon-style mustard before serving. We've got some great barbecue sauces you can try!

This comment sounds so good, I will try it. Thanks

Definitely gonna give this recipe a try.

Decided to give this recipe a try as it is similar to oven fries that I make. As most people do, I tweeked it to suit my family's taste. The canned potatoes were a great convenience and made quick work of preparation -- I think I may have spent 5 minutes total preparing this recipe. (Amazingly, the potatoes did not taste canned at all.) I used 2 tablespoons butter and 2 tablespoons oil instead of 1/4 cup oil, and a pinch of red pepper flakes instead of paprika. Also tossed in a tablespoon of parsley flakes, some chopped green onion tops, and 1/4 cup grated Parmesn cheese. We don't care for cumin outside of Mexican dishes so left it out. Brushed the oil mixture alternately with honey Dijon mustard and grilled till golden and crispy. They were the best potatoes I ever ate, and the family loved them. Even though I really only used it as a base, thanks for the recipe. I'll make it again and again.
