Grilled Potatoes and Onions

I hate how warm our kitchen gets in the summer when I turn on the oven or stove, so I try to cook as much of our meals as possible on the grill. I love this recipe, because I can cook a hunk o' meat on one side of the grill while cooking these packets on the other. I just throw together a salad, and we have a filling summer meal that keeps the heat outside.

Grilled Potatoes and Onions
Source: MSPI Mama

4 medium potatoes, scrubbed clean
1 red onion
¼ cup olive oil
1 tsp. salt
½ tsp. black pepper
1 tsp. dried rosemary, optional

Heat grill to a medium-high heat, about 400 degrees.

Thinly slice the potatoes and onion and place in a large bowl. Top with oil and seasonings. Toss everything together.

Lay a large square of heavy-duty foil on the counter. Mound half of the potato mixture in the middle of the foil. Bring ends of foil together and fold ends tightly to form a large, flat package. Jiggle packet to help distribute potato mixture evenly. Repeat steps with a second piece of foil.

Adjust grill for indirect heat (i.e. turn off gas burner on one side or push charcoals to one side). Place potato packets on the indirect side of the grill. Grill for 30-45 minutes, flipping package halfway through.

Tip: Open packages carefully! There’s a lot of steam!
