Yup, you read that right… Caesar Salad made with roasted potatoes.

2 words to describe it… Awe Some.

Everything you love about Caesar Salad, combined with everything you love about roasted potatoes.  Here’s another great thing about this recipe; it’s super quick to make and ridiculously easy.

This is another one of our BBQ Sides that I get a lot of requests for.  Give it a shot!

Here is what you are going to need for this recipe:

  • 3 lbs. mini potatoes cut in half
  • 8 slices of bacon
  • 3 green onions (green part only)
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese (yes, I used the crappy stuff in the shaker, so what!)
  • Your favourite Caesar Salad Dressing (as much as you like)
  • olive oil (enough to coat the potatoes)
  • salt (to taste)
  • pepper (to taste)

I start by preheating my grill (or oven) to 425 degrees.

Cut the potatoes in half and throw on a baking sheet.

Drizzle with enough oil to coat the potatoes but it shouldn’t be swimming in oil.  Season potatoes liberally with salt and pepper.

Toss in the BBQ and shut the lid (or in the oven) for about 30.  Every 10 minutes you will want to shake the tray and flip the potatoes over.  We want them all to be nice and golden brown on both sides and soft in the middle.  Use a fork to test the doneness, or even better do what I do; EAT ONE!  When you like them, they are done.

Meanwhile, cut up the bacon into small strips. Place in a pan and cook until nice and crispy. Once the bacon is cooked, remove from the pan and set on paper towel to drain.

Slice the green onions into small rounds.

Throw all ingredients in a foil tray if going to a party for easy clean up, or in a nice big bowl and mix to combine.  I didn’t put an amount on the dressing.  If you like a lot of dressing use a lot.  If you like a little, take it easy with the dressing.

And voila you are done and ready to sit down with your friends and eat!  Pretty easy right?!
