Grilled hamburgers and hot dogs share one popular side kick: French fries. Problem is, the cooking methods and vessels used to make those mains and fries are different. To solve that dilemma, this recipe grills thick potato wedge-style “fries” in a rectangular grill basket so that they can be made alongside their protein counterparts.



Special equipment:
an 11.5-inch-by-13.5-inch rectangular open grill basket
  1. Prepare a grill for medium heat.
  2. Poke a few holes all over the potatoes and place them onto a microwave-safe plate. Microwave until they are just tender and a paring knife can easily be inserted but gets a bit stuck before hitting the middle, about 4 minutes. Let cool slightly, about 5 minutes.
  3. Cut each of the potatoes into 8 long wedges so that you have 16 total wedges and transfer to a large bowl. Add the vegetable oil, garlic salt, onion powder, paprika, 2 teaspoons kosher salt and a few grinds of pepper and toss with your hands so that the potatoes are evenly covered.
  4. Place an 11.5-inch-by-13.5-inch rectangular open grill basket onto the grill. Transfer the potatoes to the basket, making sure they are in an even layer and that a cut-side of each potato is touching the bottom. Cover the grill and cook, flipping the potatoes halfway through, until golden brown and can easily be cut with a fork, 20 to 25 minutes. Transfer to a serving platter and season with more kosher salt as desired. Serve with ketchup.
