  1. Recently purchased and Egg, and this was my first side dish. Amazing. I used bigger potatoes that I cut in half before I put them on the grill, but they turned out perfect. My wife asked my sixteen year old daughter what was the best thing that had happened to her all day, and my daughter said, “this potato.”
