Summertime gets so busy with all of the holidays, potlucks and BBQ’s that are going on, it is nice to have a few super easy side dishes to make on the grill. When you plan to make most of your dishes on the grill, there is no heating up with kitchen with ovens or steam from boiling pots. So many things can be made on the grill! Side dishes, veges, even desserts!

Which potatoes to use

We like to thin skinned potatoes like red potatoes, Yukon gold or white potatoes. Avoid thick skinned potatoes like Russet potatoes.

If it is the middle of winter, you can still enjoy these Foil Packet Potatoes in the oven. Just bake at a fairly high temperature, around 450°F so that they get a bit of caramelization, like they do on the grill!

How to make foil packet potatoes

  1. Cut piece of aluminum foil larger than you think you need, so that you can seal the potatoes tightly.
  2. Arrange potatoes in center of foil.
  3. Add fresh or dried herbs, salt, black pepper, pesto, roasted garlic, butter or olive oil to packet. Add chopped or slices of onion, garlic, carrots or any other flavor you would like.
  4. Wrap tightly. Add another piece of foil, if necessary to get a tight seal.
  5. Grill or bake at 450°F in oven until tender and potatoes can be easily pierced with fork. About 30-45 minutes, depending on the size of the potatoes.

These potatoes are best indirect grilled, meaning they should be placed on the side of the grill that has no flame under it.
Lid should be kept closed when indirect grilling. 
Turn foil pack occasionally. The side nearest the flames will be hotter.
