Potatoes on kabobs?

I don't think it will work because potatoes take longer to cook than most meats and veggies, but I have a feeling one of you girls probably knows a way around that?

  • We have done sliced potatos on the grill; grilled sweet potatoes are beyond amazing. I don't see why you can't do white potatoes; be sure use a really firm potato and you may want to parboil for a couple of minutes.

  • Boil them for a bit first to cook them slightly so they have a head start and will finish at the same time as the meat and veggies. I usually do my veggies on one and meat on another since they don't always have the same cook time.

  • You can par boil them by putting them in water on the stove for just a few min to begin their cooking, then drain, put a touch of olive oil and seasoning like rosemary, basil, garlic salt, etc. and then grill in a grilling basket.

    If you do them small enough, grill them quickly to brown, then make an amazing grilled pot. salad!

  • I either boil them for a few minutes first or nuke them.

  • I steam them in the microwave first. Cut into cubes first, put in a bowl with a couple tbs of water cover with plastic wrap. Cook on high 3 minutes; stir. Recover & cook 2-4 more minutes or until just tender. Drain. I also do this before I roast potatoes-cuts the cooking time in 1/2.
