July 4th is on Thursday, and that means firing up the grill! We’ve been talking about grilling a lot around here lately, but what fun is summer if you don’t cook lots of food outside over an open flame? No fun, that’s what!
This Independence Day, treat yourself to an grilled feast with plenty of healthy, hearty potatoes. Not only do potatoes bring a healthy dose of vitamin C to the table, but they’re a budget-friendly vegetable to flesh out your July 4th menu. That’s important if you’re planning a big ol’ cookout!
Also, remember that PotatOHs are a great shortcut to getting your potatoes ready for grilling. Throw them in the microwave and they’ll be cooked in just 4-7 minutes, cutting down grilling time and letting you enjoy more time with friends and family.
We’ve rounded up some of our favorite potato sides, so no matter if you’re grilling a meat or veggie dish, there’s a great potato recipe to go with it. Enjoy!
