Grilled Potatoes with Sour Cream Green Onion Sauce

This recipe I loosely based off of a recipe from Life's Ambrosia and after making them they were really good but I think they would be better with pain yogurt instead of sour cream, much less mayo, and I think raw garlic pressed into the sauce rather than the powder.  That said here is the story.  It's BBQ season and I attended my first of the season, this last beautiful weekend here in Portland, Oregon.  In preparation I went on a grilling recipe hunt through the endless blogs to get ideas for new things or ways to grill.  I came upon this recipe after about an hour and decided it was perfect.  The BBQ of course had all the other basics of steaks, sausages, asparagus, salad, wine, beer the usual.  So here is something new, fun, and easy to put on your grill this summa time!

Serves about 5 as an appetizer

The Ingredients
5 medium red potatoes, sliced about 1/4 inch thick
3 green onions, chopped
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper 
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1 cup sour cream
1/3 cup mayonnaise

The Process
1.  Start by putting sliced potatoes in boiling water and boil about 4 minutes so that they are par-boiled.

2.  While potatoes are boiling mix together in large bowl green onions, salt, pepper, garlic powder, sour cream, and mayonnaise.

3.  When potatoes are done boiling rinse them several times with cold water to stop them from cooking and then put into the bowl of sauce.

4.  Make sure that each potato is covered with sauce and place on large plate for grilling, there should still be about a 1/2 cup of sauce remaining in the bowl for post grilling dollops.

5.  Grill potatoes until tender, about 5 minutes each side.  Take off grill and put a small dollop of sour cream sauce on each potato and eat!
