Potato and Yam Barbecue Mix

Potato and Yam Barbecue Mix
As I'm cleaning up our fridge in preparation for my next trip to the grocery store, Ive decided to take  the last 4 golden yukon potatoes and 2 yams we had on hand and cut them into cubes to experiment and determine how they'd turn out barbecued together on the grill. I figure these have got to go well together, given they're both somewhat sweet and should compliment one another, both in flavour and texture and I was right ... They turned out so tasty! 
INGREDIENTS:
4 Golden Yukon Potatoes
2 Yams
1 Onion, diced (optional)
2 Garlic cloves, diced (optional)
Salt & Pepper, to taste
Greek Oregano, to taste
Garlic Powder, to taste
Olive oil

  2. We have lots of potatoes here in Rome (hence the famous Roman potato gnocchi) but not yams. I do find red potatoes and they are as orange a yours in the picture but the taste is nothing like the sweet potatoes I used to eat in American when I was there in the 60s and 70s. You have a really appetizing blog, I am following you.

  7. Hi Ellen! Great recipe - I love your choice of flavoring! We grill this potato blend, too, but with sage in place of the oregano. Thank you for sharing.
