Drunken Potatoes

May 30, 2010

Memorial Day is the official kick off of the grilling season.  We’ve been using the grill for months already.  Once the temperature gets about 50 we start up the grill on a regular basis.  Prior to that we just grill on occasion because the grill is kept in the garage during the winter months.

We’ve been making these potatoes on the grill for years.  We also make them when we go camping.  I’ve never attempted them in the house.  I guess I just associate them with the grill.  They are the moistest potatoes.  They are also one of those dishes that you can just put on the grill and walk away from.  Since I’ve been baking today making my prototype piano cake for Meeshie’s birthday, I thought I would share this wonderful recipe. 

Drunken Potatoes

  • 4 whole Potatoes, Scrubbed And Diced
  • 1 whole Onion, Diced
  • 3 cloves Garlic, Minced
  • Salt And Pepper, to taste
  • 6 Tablespoons Butter
  • 1 can Beer, 12 Ounce Can
  • ¾ cups Cheddar Cheese, Shredded

Place the potatoes, onions, garlic, salt and pepper, and butter in a foil pan. Add as much of the beer to the pan that space will allow. Place on a preheated medium heat grill. Cook, uncovered, until all of the beer has been cooked out, tossing occasionally. If your pan did not allow for the entire can of beer, add the remaining beer to the pan. Once the full 12 ounces of the beer is cooked out, then sprinkle potatoes with the cheese and cover the pan to allow the cheese to melt.
