This seasoned potato wedges recipe is so easy, and is a great side dish for the hot summer months when you don’t want to cook anything indoors. Also, you can prepare these many different ways, so it can always be something a little different!

Parboiling these before you stick them on the grill helps to make the inside of the wedges super soft like french fries, while the grilling helps to make the outside nice and crispy.

How do you cook potatoes on the grill?

This recipe is very simple to make! Here is a brief overview of the recipe to give you an idea of how it works. For the full set of directions and measurements, please make sure you scroll down to the recipe card below!

Prep the potatoes

Wash the potatoes and slice them into wedges lengthwise.


Place the potato wedges in boiling water for about 5 minutes. This cooks them partway and helps them to stay nice and tender on the inside during grilling. You want them to be just soft enough to be pierced easily with a knife but still firm and holding their shape.

Allow them to cool for a few minutes and then coat with olive oil and seasoning.


Grill the potatoes over medium heat for about 5 to 7 minutes per side, flipping only once to get nice grill marks.

Can you cook potatoes without boiling?

I know that parboiling adds another step to your cooking, and you might be wondering if you can just skip it. I highly recommend that you don’t. Without parboiling, the potatoes become hard on the inside and are more likely to burn on the outside.

How to serve seasoned grilled potato wedges:

These are so similar to french fries that you can serve them so many ways – serve with a great dipping sauce like ketchup, ranch, bbq sauce, or a fun homemade aioli recipe!

These would be amazing beside grilled shrimp skewers or grilled beef kabobs – a perfect summer meal!

How to store and reheat leftovers

  • Store leftovers in an air tight container in the fridge for up to 4 days.
  • Reheat in the oven on a parchment lined baking sheet at 350 F until warmed through.
