Grilled Packet Potatoes Recipe

Grilled Packet Potatoes Recipe

Versatile and delicious, this grill-top recipe created by food writer Judith Fertig is about as easy as they come. Almost as satisfying as the taste is the fact that the dish requires no cleanup.


  • 8 red or russet potatoes, sliced 1/4-inch thick
  • 8 green onions, chopped with some of the green, plus more for garnish
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • Salt and pepper


  1. Prepare the grill for cooking. Place two 18-inch-long pieces of heavy-duty foil on a flat surface. Divide the potatoes, green onions, and garlic between the two pieces of foil, keeping the mixture in the center of each sheet. Drizzle the potatoes with the olive oil and season them to your liking. Gently toss the ingredients on the foil, then fold and crimp the foil along the sides to make a flat packet (make each packet a uniform thickness for even cooking).
  2. Grill the packets for 15 minutes, then turn them over and grill them for 10 minutes more. The potatoes can be served directly from the foil packets, sprinkled with additional green onion. Serves 8.
