Ingredients

  • 1kg baby new potatoes

Method

  1. Cook the potatoes in boiling water for 15-20 minutes, until tender. Drain well, then toss with the garlic, chives, butter and some salt and pepper.
  2. Divide between 3 double-thickness squares of foil and sit directly over the barbecue coals for 10-15 minutes, until they brown and catch a little on the bottom.

  1. Get ahead of time by mashing together the garlic, chives, butter, and some salt and black pepper. Chill until needed. You could also try threading the cooked potatoes onto skewers and cook over hot coals for 5-10 minutes, until crispy. Dot with the garlic butter to serve.
