Red Potato Skewers

As a busy mother of three boys, I love to find good grilling recipes that my husband can use. A seasoned mayonnaise mixture keeps these quartered potatoes moist and heavenly. —Dawn Finch, Prosser, Washington

    We enjoyed the potato skewers. The mayo mixture gave them a great taste and putting them on the grill gave them a nice crispness!

    I used garlic powder instead of salt and half olive oil and half mayo, added oregano and cayenne pepper. Used my oven broiler with the skewers so it made them easy to flip over and brown perfectly. They turned out great!

    These were pretty tasty. We had a change of plans, so I ended up just sauteing them. It worked well. They also warmed up quite nicely and we enjoyed them for dinner two nights later.
