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.

How to bake foil packs:

Just make each foil pack as normal. However, instead of putting them on the grill, place them on a baking sheet.

Put in the oven and bake! The baking sheet will make it much easier to remove from the oven.

Carefully open and enjoy!
