  • 24 oz. Tasteful Selections® fingerling potatoes
  • 2 tsp. olive oil
  • 1 tbsp. Spud Rub (see below)

Spud Rub Ingredients:

  • 1 tbsp. onion powder
  • 2 tsp. lemon pepper
  • tsp. paprika
  • tsp. smoked paprika
  • ½ tsp. sea salt
  • ½ tsp. ground cumin


  • For the rub, combine all ingredients in a glass jar, close the lid and shake to blend. Store the rub at room temperature.
  • Prepare a medium-hot fire in your grill. Place the potatoes in a bowl, drizzle with the olive oil and sprinkle with Spud Rub. Toss to coat.
  • Place the potatoes on the grill rack or in grill basket directly over the heat and close the grill lid. After 3-4 minutes, open the lid and toss the potatoes or turn the basket. Close the lid again and repeat the process for 12-15 minutes, or until the potatoes are tender when pierced with a fork.
