Week 51: Grilled Potatoes

This seemed like kind of a silly thing to need a recipe for - we make foil packets of potatoes on the grill all the time. The results are inconsistent, though. They are often raw or too salty or flavorless. I thought I'd experiment with someone else's proportions for a quick side dish.

Taken from Healthy Cooking, June / July 2010, p. 31
Prep: 15 minutes
Grill: 40 minutes
Makes 8 servings

8 medium potatoes, cut into 1" cubes
1 lrg onions, sliced
2 Tbsp butter, melted
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 tsp pepper
Sour cream, optional

In a large bowl, combine the first six ingredients. Divide mixture between two double thicknesses of heavy-duty foil (about 18" square). Fold foil around mixture and seal tightly.

Grill, covered, over medium heat for 40 - 45 minutes or until potatoes are tender, turning once. Open foil carefully to allow steam to escape.

Serve with sour cream, if desired.

My notes:
These were great! I wouldn't change a thing.
