How to grill potatoes in foil:

Peel the potatoes and slice into 1/4” thick slices. Next, Peel and thinly slice the onion.

Place foil on the counter and spray with a non-stick cooking spray. I used 1 piece of foil per each potato.

Place the potatoes and onion slices on the foil. Season each packet with approximately ¼ tsp of the Salt and Pepper and top with 1 Tablespoon of the butter.

Can I use different potatoes?

Yes, you certainly can. Other options include red potatoes, Yukon gold, fingerling potatoes and baby potatoes.

They all taste delicious but the texture may vary based on what type of potato you use.

I often will use what I happen to have or can get on sale at the store.  This is how I keep our grocery budget reasonable.

I have never met a potato I didn’t like. 🙂

You can also omit the onions if you have some that do not care for those. It is super easy to make different foil packs.

The recipe is easy to modify for what you have on hand and this really helps your budget. By cooking like this, it really helps me to save money on groceries. It is a huge help to our budget.

Seasoning variation ideas:

These really are amazing with just a little salt, pepper and butter. You can also try using seasoning salt or garlic powder on the potatoes.

If you like ranch flavor, try a little dry ranch dressing mix. Italian seasoning is also good. Paprika is another favorite.

Topping ideas:

Parmesan cheese and green onion is also really good on the potatoes.

The kids love shredded cheese and bacon bits on top. The possibilities are endless!

I like to dip the potatoes in ranch or drizzle some on top. Yum! Sour cream is also good on top.

    These are so easy. I usually omit the onions and double the butter. I use Tony Chachere’s or Cavenders Greek seasoning on mine. They are so moist and delicious!!
