Last weekend, we grilled burgers for dinner. We wanted potatoes with our burgers and decided to make them on the grill. Maybe we wanted to feel like pioneers (with our propane-fueled, electrical-started grill??). I’m not sure, we just decided we needed to make the potatoes on the grill. The experiment went really well.
My husband likes red potatoes, but the kids and I like sweet potatoes. My son, only like sweet potatoes seasoned one way and the rest of us are a bit tired of it. That was the first big plus with making the potatoes on the grill. We could make as many different kinds as we wanted.
We ended up with three different variations of potato packets.
- Red potatoes
- Italian Seasoning
- Sweet potato
- Season Salt
- Sweet potato
Just cube the potatoes and top them with seasonings and butter. I double wrapped the sweet potato packets because sweet potatoes release a sugary syrup when they cook. The red potatoes were fine in the single wrap.
25 minutes on the grill and we each had our own delicious version of potatoes. These would also work really well on a campfire. Maybe that would make us more like pioneers.
- Cut potatoes into cubes and place on a large piece of foil sprayed with non-stick cooking spray.
- Add desired seasonings to potatoes.
- Top potatoes with cubed butter.
- Wrap in foil (double wrap for sweet potatoes) and place on a grill set to medium heat.
- Cook for 15 minutes. Flip and cook for another 10-15 minutes.
This sounds great!
