How to Grill Potatoes in Foil
Combine potatoes and herbs in a large bowl.
Arrange the potatoes on a large piece of foil and fold the edges to make a packet.
Place the packets on the grill and cover. Cook for about 20 to 25 minutes, or until potatoes are tender.
Take off the grill and serve.
Use smaller new potatoes to maximize texture. I use small Yukon gold potatoes.
This potato recipe is very versatile. You can use simple flavor additions or swaps like lemon, different seasonings, shallots, onions, and so on.
The potato packets can also be prepared in the oven at 425F for about 15 to 20 minutes.
So easy and simple, right? Charred, smoky flavor, near endless flavor possibilities, and very yummy. Me thinks these will be great for a camp dinner, as well.
