I love Greek food and love to BBQ whenever possible. So when we do lamb on the grill, I love to add this as a side dish.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

A healthier and less messy way to cook fries without frying them. The mix of thyme, rosemary, and oregano is delicious and not overpowering. They're wonderful without the Feta, but we'd encourage you to sprinkle it on top. The cheese adds a touch of savory flavor. A creative twist on french fries for summer grilling season.

How To Make cassie's greek fries on the grill

Test Kitchen Tips
Since these potatoes were already cooked, we only needed to grill them for 20 minutes turning them halfway through. But cook to your preference.
  • Boiling potatoes in beer and water.
    Start by peeling and cutting the potatoes into wedges. Place them in a large cooking pot with a can of beer and enough water to cover the taters. Boil the taters for 10 min.
  • Oil, herbs, seasonings, and lemon juice in a bowl.
    In a large mixing bowl (the bigger the better), add the EVOO, seasonings, and lemon juice. Mix well.
  • Dredging wedges in the seasoned oil.
    Then take just a few of the wedges at a time and dredge them in the EVOO mix.
  • Coated potatoes on a baking sheet.
    Place them on a foil-covered cooking sheet. Once all are done it's time to grill.
  • Grilling the potatoes.
    Because they are pre-cooked, we really just want some grill marks and to make sure they get crispy.
  • Grilled potatoes on a baking sheet.
    Happy Eating! When they are done and still hot I like to put Feta cheese on mine and my hubby's (kids don't like Feta).
