How to make grilled red potatoes:
First, wash the potatoes really good. Once the potatoes are clean, quarter them into slices.
Second, get 3 pieces of foil out and lay flat. Divide the potatoes between each piece of foil.
You will want to use heavy duty foil for a foil pack so it won’t break when you are grilling. You can use regular foil but I recommend you double wrap it to avoid it breaking in the oven.
When I first started making these, I thought I could use regular foil and ended up with a big mess. Learn from my mistake!
Next, add the butter and seasonings all over the potatoes. You want to make sure all of the potatoes are coated.
Sometimes, I use olive oil instead of butter.
Finally, fold the foil on each side and put on the grill or oven.
Remember to be careful when you open the foil pack. The steam will be really hot.

Carefully open and enjoy!
