What You Will Need
- Yukon gold potatoes – these are our personal favorite potato variety, but feel free to use any type of potato that you want.
- avocado oil – option to use this or sub with extra virgin olive oil.
- kosher salt & ground black pepper – simple seasonings that are always a must, option to add in some garlic, onion powder, or a few red pepper flakes for a little bit of a kick.
How To Make Grilled Potato Wedges
First, grab the type of potatoes that you would like to grill, rinse with cold water, and pat dry with clean paper towels.
How To Cut Potatoes Into Wedges
Cut the Yukon Gold potato in half, lengthwise. Place half flat side down and cut in half lengthwise again. Cut each of those quarters in half lengthwise. This will result in 8 wedges.
Place the cut potato wedges in a medium bowl and drizzle with olive oil.
Generously sprinkle kosher salt over all the wedges.
Now grab a pick piece of aluminum foil and fold up all four sides to create an aluminum foil boat. Place it on a clean, preheated grill and then toss the potatoes in a single layer on top.
Grill the potatoes over direct heat for about 12 minutes, flipping every 4 minutes. Enjoy any way you want!
How To Serve Grilled Potato Wedges
These crispy potato wedges are delicious with just about anything! We love to keep it simple and toss them on the grill anytime we are grilling a main dish, like grilled red snapper, grilled chicken sandwiches, or grilled pork tenderloin. Make them at your next backyard cookout or as an easy side dish for your next weeknight dinner!

Grilled Potato Wedges – An easy, delicious and kid-friendly side dish that goes with everything! Toss them on the grill with any grilled main dish!
- 6–8 Yukon gold potatoes, cut into wedges
- 2 tablespoons avocado oil (or extra virgin olive oil)
- 2–3 teaspoons kosher salt
- 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
- Preheat: Preheat grill to 450 degrees F.
- Oil: Place potato wedges in medium bowl and drizzle with oil. Use your hands to massage the oil into the potato wedges, coating every piece.
- Season: Sprinkle with salt and pepper, tossing to coat.
- Foil Basket: Take a large piece of aluminum foil and fold up all 4 sides to create a foil tray (alternatively you can use a grill pan or basket).
- Direct Heat: Place foil on clean grill grates over direct heat. Add potatoes to your foil basket (or grill basket).
- Keep Moving: Cook for a total of 12 minutes opening the grill every 4 minutes to move the potatoes around.
- Test: After 12 minutes test one potato and determine if they are done to your liking. If not, close grill and cook for an additional 2-4 minutes or until soft, but firm.
- Remove: Carefully remove from grill and serve immediately with ranch dressing (or dipping sauce of your choice).
- How to Cut into Wedges: Cut the Yukon Gold potato in half, lengthwise. Place that half flat side down and cut in half lengthwise again. Cut each of those quarters in half lengthwise. This will result in 8 wedges.
- Cooking Time Will Vary for Thicker Wedges: You may need to increase the cooking time by 2-5 minutes depending upon the thickness of your potato wedges. Simply pull off one wedge and test the firmness with a fork to determine if you need to continue cooking.
- Using Other Potatoes: Yes, you can use other potatoes, but the cooking time may be off. Russet potatoes, for example, are much larger than a Yukon Gold potato and the wedges tend to be longer and thicker. Just adjust the cook time accordingly.
- Dipping Sauce: Ranch dressing or ketchup is recommend as a dipping sauce, but feel free to use your personal preference.
- Leftovers/Storage: The potato wedges are best served right off the grill, but they do keep pretty well in the refrigerator. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
