Garlic and Rosemary New Potatoes {Recipe}

Another recipe from my Is It Summer Yet?! Barbecue - Garlic and Rosemary New Potatoes.

Usually I make a batch of potato salad when throwing a barbecue, but felt it was time for a bit of a change.
We’d bought these funky spuds called Apache Potatoes, and it seemed a shame to cover them up with white gloopy mayo, when they had such fantastic coloured skins.  I prepared the potatoes, wrapped them up in foil  parcels and placed on the barbecue.
You only need a few ingredients to make this delicious potato dish, which tastes just as good cold as it does hot from the barbecue!  The quantities I’ve given serves 4-8 people, depending on the size of your new potatoes and how many people want to eat!!
  • 10 new potatoes
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • few sprigs fresh rosemary, finely chopped
  • sea salt
  • olive oil
Start by boiling the potatoes on the stove top.  I didn’t add salt as I would be adding it later on. When the potatoes are cooked, quarter or halve them, depending on their size.

Tear off some squares of foil to make your potato parcels -you can make one per person, or put them in one big parcel.

Glug some olive oil into the centre of the foil.

Bring up the sides of the foil to make a parcel.  You can set these to one side to heat up later on.

Then place onto a barbecue to warm through.  We ended up putting one batch into our new smoker, and it gave the potatoes a wonderful flavour!  You could also put them in the embers.  The choice is yours!
