How to Grill Potatoes with a Contact Grill

On this webpage you can find a useful Youtube video showing you how to grill potatoes with a contact grill such as the George Foreman electric grill. It would be necessary to mention that this particular video wasn’t created by us, and we assume that the credit should go to the guy which can be seen in the video down below – Brandon Sarkis (however, it might not be the case, since anyone can upload someone else’s video to Youtube).

So let’s focus on the grilled potatoes recipe that visitors may want to try on their own. Obviously, it doesn’t matter this much if you happened to own a Foreman grill or another contact grill (you could also try to cook this recipe using other cooking tools like grill pans, toaster ovens, barbeques and etc). While it’s true that Brandon sears grilled red potatoes in the recipe, but other types of potatoes should just as good (according to Wikipedia, there are more than a thousand potato species – so we should have enough types to choose from).

Another thing to mention regarding the video which shows how to grill potatoes is that Brandon is actually a professional chef with a lot of experience in the kitchen, so you’ll need to be careful not to accidentally get burned while trying this grilled potatoes recipe, despite the fact that it’s not very complicated (Brandon does it quickly while speaking and shooting this film, as you’ll be able to notice in the video).

Okay, so here is the video that should give you some general instructions about how to grill potatoes nicely with a contact grill like the George Foreman electric grill (by the way, the model that Brandon uses in the video is the George Foreman GRP90WGR Next Grilleration electric nonstick grill with 5 removable plates that got a lot of attention recently with its five removable cooking plates).

In case you want to know how to grill potatoes in this way, then first you would need to have a bunch of cut potatoes (doesn’t matter if those are red potatoes or other types). Next, what we’re going to do is to brush the potatoes with some olive oil (it’s up to you to choose your favorite brand).

Despite the fact that Brandon only adds pepper and salt at this point, you’re free to choose your own spices. Here are a couple of spices that could upgrade the taste of the grilled potatoes recipe or the grilled red potatoes (again, depending on your individual taste and needs): Curcumin, Cinnamon, chicken soup powder, Cumin and etc.

Curcumin is a spice that is used very often in India (where there are much lower rates of cancer compared to America) and is believed to have anti-carcinogenic, anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial and antioxidant properties (in addition to many other medical benefits, like lowering the risk of suffering from cardiovascular diseases). This spice can add nice flavor to potato-based recipes, like homemade fries, baked potatoes, potato pies and etc.

Even though it’s not this much relevant to the video showing you how to grill potatoes with a contact grill, Cinnamon is often used in both savoury and sweet foods, and it’s up to you to choose if you wish to incorporated this spice into your dish. It would be important to remember that Cinnamon has a variety of health benefits that could interest you (for example, it’s believed to have a good influence for people who suffer from diabetes).

Another spice that would be particularly good in this grilled potatoes recipe is chicken soup powder. But isn’t chicken soup powder supposed to be used in a real soup? The answer is obviously yes, but it can seriously upgrade the taste of various other foods – so you’re welcomed to give this one a try.
