Roasted-Grilled Potatoes and Sweet Onions

1 Potato per person scrubbed clean( do not peel)
1 Sweet onion peeled and cut into wedges (secure wedges with tooth pick to retain shape and brush with olive oil)
Chopped fresh parsley or dried from the pantry
Salt and Pepper to taste
2-4 tbsp olive oil (or spray Pam)

Pierce each cleaned, whole potato with fork, put on microwave safe plate cover with a damp paper towel. Microwave using preset setting for 'baked' potato, or on high till potato is tender and can be pierced thru with fork easily.

Cut each potato in half or quarters if very large, brush cut side(s) with olive oil. Take prepared onions and potatoes and place cut sides down on hot grill and cook till potatoes are golden and onions are tender crisp.

Remove from grill and toss potatoes and onions (tooth picks removed) with fresh parsley, salt and pepper to taste. May be drizzled with additional olive oil or topped with sour cream or ranch flavored sour cream dip.

Made these last night for dinner to go with a pork tenderloin that I also made on the grill. Last nights dinner clean up was a snap!
