Introduction

Experience the delight of perfectly cooked Fondant Potatoes with a crispy exterior and tender, creamy interior. Using the Arteflame grill, you can achieve a steakhouse-quality sear while utilizing the flat cooktop for even cooking. This method ensures your potatoes are beautifully browned and deliciously flavorful.

Ingredients

    • 6 large russet potatoes
    • 4 tablespoons butter, melted
    • 2 tablespoons olive oil
    • 1 cup chicken broth
    • 2 cloves garlic, minced
    • 1 teaspoon sea salt
    • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
    • 2 sprigs fresh thyme
    • Fresh parsley, chopped (for garnish)

Instructions

  1. Prepare the Potatoes:

    • Peel the potatoes and cut them into thick rounds, about 2 inches thick. Rinse and pat them dry with paper towels.
  2. Season the Potatoes:

    • Brush the potato rounds with melted butter and season with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper.
  3. Fire Up the Grill:

    • Preheat your Arteflame grill to high heat (over 1,000°F) to get it ready for grilling.
  4. Sear the Potatoes:

    • Place the potato rounds on the center grill grate and sear each side for about 3-4 minutes until they develop a golden-brown crust.
  5. Cook on the Flat Top:

    • Move the seared potatoes to the flat top griddle. Add olive oil, chicken broth, minced garlic, and fresh thyme. Lower the heat to medium and cook for another 15-20 minutes, flipping occasionally, until the potatoes are tender and infused with flavor.
  6. Finish and Serve:

    • Remove the potatoes from the grill and let them rest for a few minutes. Garnish with chopped fresh parsley. Serve hot.

Tips

  • Butter vs. Olive Oil: Butter adds a rich flavor to the potatoes, while olive oil helps them cook evenly.
  • High Heat for Searing: Achieve a perfect sear on the potatoes by utilizing the high heat of the Arteflame Grill.
  • Even Cooking: Move the potatoes around the flat top griddle to find the optimal heat zone for even cooking.

Conclusion

Cooking Fondant Potatoes on the Arteflame grill not only delivers a deliciously crispy exterior but also ensures a creamy, tender inside. This recipe guarantees flavorful, beautifully browned potatoes that make a perfect side dish for any meal.
