Next time you fire up the BBQ for a summer cook out, consider preparing these easy and delicious roasted potatoes in foil packets. They are so simple and always turn out mouth watering! These potatoes are also the perfect meal/snack/side dish to make while camping.

Easy Foil Packet Potatoes on the Grill


3 lbs. Potatoes – chopped in about one inch pieces (I love Golden Potatoes)
1 White Onion – chopped
Olive Oil – about 1-2 tablespoons
Seasonings of choice (I sprinkle with Salt & Steak Seasoning which is a mixture of Salt, Pepper, Garlic, Coriander Seed, Dill, & Red Pepper)

foil packet potatoes hip2SaveDirections: Preheat grill to medium high. Plan to split chopped potatoes and onions in two or three packets of foil or create individual packets for each person. Tear off a large piece of foil and place potatoes & onions on top. Evenly coat & toss with olive oil and seasonings. Cover with another piece of foil and seal sides well leaving room for steam. Repeat with remaining potatoes & onions. Grill covered for about 25-30 minutes until tender. Turn packets a couple times while grilling. Serves about 6-8.

This is my favorite way to make potatoes in the summer because it doesn’t heat up the kitchen. Plus, leftovers make really great breakfast potatoes in the morning. A prep ahead idea for camping would be to place seasoned and coated potatoes & onions in a large Ziploc bag and just bring foil along to grill. You can also use the same method for your favorite roasted vegetables. Yum!

Have you ever had moments when you're either out of time or out of printer ink, or both, and you really want to keep track of a "Hip" deal or print a valuable coupon in the next day or two? Or what do you do when an outstanding, but pricey, deal is posted and you want to save it for discussion with your significant other? Well, now you're in luck! No more searching through pages of posts to find the coupon or the deal. Simply move the post to your Hip List and access it at your convenience.

How Does the Hip List Work?

It's easy! To use this feature, first head on over here and register and log into your account. Whenever you find a great deal that you want to come back to later at a later time, just click on the HIP List icon located on each post (see images below) and the information will be saved in your account. To remove a post from your HIP List, just click on the HIP List icon and it will be removed.

When logged into your account, you will see the HIP List icon at the bottom of every post if you are viewing in classic view.

If you prefer to view in river view, you will see the HIP List icon located on every post above the post title and to the right.

If you're wanting to print a certain deal, blog post, or the Weekly Store Matchups from your HIP list, click on the small blue printer icon in the upper right corner of the HIP list. This will allow you to customize the information that you want or don't want to include when printing from your HIP list so you're only printing the information that's most important to you!
