  2. Rub each slice with a little oil and barbecue until golden and charred on each side. Place in a dish and sprinkle with rosemary and garlic, if using. Drizzle with a little more olive oil, season with salt and serve.

Wow so scrummy! Wish we'd found this recipe before. So simple and tasted delicious but I would put the rosemary & garlic on while they're cooking so it cooks out, raw garlic is not pleasant so I left it off. Scored it 8.5/10 and we'll definitely eat them again

I've made this a couple of time now, and it's become a bbq favourit. I don't discard the rounded ends, they cook well too, and I've used thyme instead of rosemarym which worked beautifully.

These were really easy and delicious. Don't overcok the potato slices - keep an eye on them. If you overcook then they'll lost their shape/collapse. We can't have that!
