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)
Directions: 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!
