After a quick cook in the microwave, baby potatoes grill up tender and flavorful in this 40 minute dish. Cooking these pretty skewers to on the grill makes them a fabulous BBQ side dish. Try skewering the potatoes on rosemary stems for a beautiful presentation. If using wooden skewers, make sure to soak them in water for 20 minutes first to prevent charring. Throw some purple potatoes into the mix for even more color variety. Try to keep potatoes of the same size together on their skewer to ensure even cooking. Grilled chicken with tangy barbecue sauce or simple grilled flank steak accompany these potatoes well. Fill your grill top with a variety of veggies like asparagus and zucchini for a quick and easy addition to the plate.
