Grilled Potatoes with Onion and Garlic

Simply Fantastic

These grilled potatoes with onion and garlic remind me of the days when I would go camping. I’d be lakeside, somewhere, trying to catch fish, and often without any luck. I didn’t worry, though, because I always had some hot dogs or burgers in the cooler, waiting for a hot grill. Back then it was park grill, today it’d be my portable Weber. I’d pre-make packets of these potatoes and toss them on too. In no time, I was enjoying a great meal in the great outdoors. You can’t beat that. It didn’t matter whether I caught any fish or not.

A grill basket makes grilling these potatoes much easier. And clean-up is much easier, too!

  • Fire up your grill for medium-high heat.
  • Transfer the potatoes, onion and garlic to a large bowl.
  • Drizzle with the oil and season with salt and pepper. Toss to combine and coat.
  • Tear off a large piece of aluminum foil.
  • Place the potato mixture in the center of the foil and fold up the edges to seal.
  • Transfer to a grill and cook 15-20 minutes or until tender. To test, you can poke the potatoes with a thin skewer. Once the potatoes are as tender as you like, remove the packets from the grill.
  • Carefully open the packets (the hot steam released might burn you) and serve.
