Grilled potatoes in foil packets
I remember as a kid my parents making grilled potatoes in foil pouches with sliced potatoes, butter and onion and putting them over the campfire to cook for dinner.
If you also remember doing this why not relive the memories, but at home on your grill.
A neat little twist to grilled potato recipes like this is to add a packet of onion soup mix to the foil packet instead of regular onions.
The soup mix ingredients really blends well with the butter and gently simmers your potatoes in a nice rich onion sauce.
When they're grilled you can just split open the foil and serve the potatoes right out of the packet.
Prep time: 15 minutes
In-direct Heat or upper warming rack of the grill: 400F - 425F
Now the foil is ready for the recipe contents in the next step.
Place 4 teaspoons of butter over the potatoes.
Cover with 1/2 the packet of onion soup mix.
Cover with the remaining sliced potatoes, 4 more teaspoons of butter and the rest of the onion soup mix.
Fold these long edges over themselves as many times as it takes until you have reached the contents.
Begin folding the small ends over themselves until you reach the contents.
You should now have a leak-proof foil packet for the potatoes.
Place the grilled potatoes on the top warming rack if you have it.
Flip several times during cooking to keep the butter and juices distributed - use a BBQ mitt or tongs to do this (don't puncture the foil or you'll have a mess).
Serve immediately after cooking.
