Grilled Potatoes

 

 

There’s nothing that goes better with a BBQ or grilled meat than some perfectly cooked potatoes right off the grill. I love to make these potato packets because I can do the work ahead of time and keep them in the refrigerator until they’re ready for the grill. It’s a great way to relax and enjoy time with friends and family, because I’m not running around trying to prepare the side dishes. Of course, these grilled potatoes are delicious, but they’re also a fun way for the kids to make their own little packet just the way they like. In fact, don’t just stop at grilled potatoes, just about any type of grilled vegetables will make a great side dish for a casual cookout. We love carrots, corn, sweet potatoes, even grilled beets.

Grilled Potatoes
When you fire up the grill, don't forget to throw on some potatoes. These grilled potatoes will go great with whatever you're cookin' up! And, because you're making individual potato packets, you can omit onions in some, add a little kick of garlic in others, whatever you like.

Grilled Potatoes
Instructions
Preheat gas or charcoal grill to medium high heat.
  1. In a large bowl, combine sliced potatoes and onion (if using). Add olive oil, salt, pepper, and herbs; toss to combine well making sure that the potatoes and onions are coated with the olive oil.
  2. Cut 8 sheets of aluminum foil, each approximately 16″ long. Lay two sheets on top of each other and spray top foil lightly with a nonstick cooking spray. Arrange one-fourth of the potatoes and onion on top of the foil. Dab with about 1/2 Tbsp butter.
  3. Keeping the packet somewhat flat, close first layer of foil around the potatoes, sealing well. Turn the entire packet upside down onto the second piece of foil, and again, wrap and seal the foil. You should have a parcel that is approximately 7″ x 5″ x 2″. The main goal is to be sure that the potatoes are only two or three slices deep so that they will all cook through. Repeat this process 3 more times until you have 4 double wrapped parcels of potatoes.
  4. Place the foil packages over indirect heat on the grill and cook for 30 to 45 minutes until the potatoes are tender, turning each package once during cooking.
  5. Serve individual foil packets.
Recipe Notes

*Salish is a smoked sea salt that gives food a wonderful smokey flavor. It's perfect for these potatoes.
