Who needs a deep fryer when you have a grill? These grilled potato wedges are the perfect side any of grilled entree and come with an addicting truffle aioli.
I don’t normally post on Fridays but after sharing a dessert and a entree for #CookoutWeek I felt like I needed a side dish to tie it all together. As I am sure you’ve guess from the title and the previous posts’ photos I went with grilled potato wedges. While I could have just tossed them in truffle oil when they were done, which would have been delicious enough, instead I served them with a truffle aioli and it was stinking fantastic.
This was actually my first time using truffle oil in a recipe. A friend gave me a small bottle of truffle oil a year ago but I’ve been coveting it for the right time. While I still have yet to open that bottle, I did open an even bigger bottle I got from The French Farm for #CookoutWeek! Fun fact, you’re not really supposed to cook with truffle oil, it’s better as a finisher, hence why I said I could have sprinkled some of it on the fries after they came off the grill. Or in this case make an aioli which I now I want to slather on everything.

They are the freaking best!
Sounds great! Ive been looking into truffle recipes as its truffle season down here in australia at the moment. I came across this https://www.thetrufflequeen.com/does-truffle-oil-contain-truffles/ and found out that truffle oil is synthetic and doesnt actually contain any truffle in it! Ive had truffle on potato chips before and they are so so good. Thanks for the recipe!
That aioli raises these humble potatoes to a whole new level.
These potatoes sound excellent, and I especially appreciate knowing how you got them properly cooked. I’ve never had truffle oil, and I think that while I’ve had truffles in something a while back, I don’t remember the flavor. Trying new things is part of the great adventure of life.
