You only need a few simple ingredients to make fried potatoes on the griddle. Full amounts are in the printable recipe card below.

  • Baby potatoes — These are my favorite potatoes as they are so easy to work with, but you can use larger Yukon gold potatoes, yellow potatoes or red potatoes. You can also cut use russet potatoes.
  • Avocado oil — Perfect for outdoor cooking due to its high smoke point. You can also use vegetable oil and olive oil if you prefer that.
  • Seasonings — sea salt, black pepper, garlic powder, onion powder
  • Butter — for extra flavor

How to Make Fried Potatoes on Blackstone Griddle

First, slice potatoes into bite sized pieces. I quarter the larger potatoes and halve the super small potatoes. This helps them cook quickly and evenly. Add them to a large bowl, and drizzle with a little avocado oil. Then, toss potatoes with the seasonings.

Heat the griddle to medium, and brush a little more oil on the surface of the griddle. Add the potatoes, and spread evenly on the griddle using a large metal spatula or grilling spatula. Turn potatoes frequently until golden brown and fork tender.

We like to add a little butter at the end of cooking for extra flavor. This is optional, though. You can also sprinkle the cooked potatoes with a little shredded Parmesan cheese and fresh parsley before serving.

Store any leftover potatoes in an airtight container in the refrigerator. We usually reheat them in the microwave, but you can do this on the stove, as well. You can freeze leftovers for longer storage — up to 3 months for best taste.

Recipe Tip

Cut potatoes into smaller pieces for quick cooking.

Change up the flavors. Try smoked paprika, sweet paprika, taco seasoning, dried rosemary, Italian seasoning or ranch seasoning.
