Recipe: For late summer grilling, these potatoes are the perfect side dish

These luscious sheet-pan potatoes pair so well with grilled meat, fish and poultry, I serve them every chance I get.

Roasted potatoes aren’t much work, especially if the spuds are left unpeeled. This foolproof version hails from Ina Garten’s book “Cooking for Jeffrey” (Clarkson Potter, $35). Skin-on spuds, either Yukon Golds or Baby Dutch Yellow potatoes, are quickly cut into 1-inch cubes and tossed with garlic, fresh rosemary sprigs, sliced lemons and olive oil. The classic Italian flavor profile is irresistible.
