Grill Potatoes!

22 posts in this topic

Recipes like this are fairly common and I'm sure a lot of people have their own, but I think I've found that simplicity is the key. I Made these along side a nice beef fillet for my wife for mom's day. They're too incredible not to share! Not exactly heart healthy, but let's just call them healthy for the soul smile

Andy's Killer Grill Potatoes (Feeds 2-4)

4 good sized russets or 6 good sized red potatoes

6 strips thick cut bacon

1 medium sized onion (whatever color you like)

Garlic Powder

Salt

Pepper

1. Tear 2 sheets of quality aluminum foil (about 18" each) and lay them on top of each other to form a double-layer. Fold the ends over on themselves tightly to attach them. This creates a durable 2-ply sheet.

2. Lay three raw bacon strips down next to each other lengthwise on the foil - the edges of the bacon should be almost touching.

3. Wash and slice half of the potatoes into thin round slices (Leave the peel on) and layer them evenly on top of the bacon.

4. Season the potatoes generously with Salt, Pepper and Garlic Powder.

5. Slice up the onion and layer it over the seasoned potatoes.

6. Repeat steps 3 and 4 with the other half of the potatoes on top of the onion.

7. Place the last three strips of bacon over the top.

8. Make another matching 2-ply foil sheet, place it directly over the top and fold the edges of the top and bottom up tightly on each together all the way around to form a packet.

9. Place it on a hot grill for 30-40 minutes flipping every ten minutes or so to keep the bacon drippings flowing throughout and to prevent any burning.

10. Unwrap carefully to avoid steam burns and try not drool to much from the wonderful aroma. Spoon on to a plate and enjoy!

I do "foil packet" veggies all summer fresh from the garden. But I like the bacon thing...

I do the same thing, however, I use the canned whole potatoes. They are already cooked and don't take nearly as long to make or prep. I also add mushrooms and occassionally corn to the mix. My secret ingredient though would have to be dill weed!

Ham works as a substitute but you should add some squares of butter to make up for the lake of bacon grease. I usually either mince or slice garlic to put in there and use some seasoned salt.

Feel free to use almost any ingredient. Another key is to really seal the edges of the tin foil so you don't have juices leaking out all over your grill.

We always called those "Hobo Dinners."Throw in some carrots and onions for a complete meal and any other veggie you like.

Potatoes and onions in foil (my heart says no to the bacon!!)are one of the staples of my summer grilling. I just sprinkle with Lowry’s and add a little cooking oil, seal the foil, and cook alongside the chicken or whatever else I'm grilling. I like to cook up a big bunch and then the leftovers get thrown in the frying pan in the morning with eggs!!! Mmmmmm!

I use Olive oil after a buddy suggested it. Mushrooms also help with moisture and I have used the foil pans and then cover them with alum foil. Garlic salt and season all or lowrys best way to do spuds!

I've never tried it with bacon, but I'm going to! I usually add red bell peppers or some roasted chili's to it also.

That sounds good!! My wife loves cheese, I may have to surprise her with this. But I doubt that I'll get the potatoes chopped down to 3/4 inch cubes!!

Can't wait to try this recipe. Tators are always great, haven't seen to many ways to make tators taste bad.

Last time I grilled some I boiled six potatoes with the skin on for about 6 minutes (you still want them hard in the center)

I slice them the long way and about 1/8 - 1/4 inch thick.

I make a seasoning with salt, pepper and garlic powder. Sprinkle the tators with the sasoning and put on the grill. Then brush on the butter. Flip every five minutes are so until done (takes about 20 minutes). Pretty tastey.

I grill potatoes in foil a lot the thinner sliced the better. The salad shooter works great for this. Also a good sub for bacon is to slice up a ring of deer sausage and that in.

    • Looks like we have at least 1 faithless elector so far.
    • Of the 2 candidates that had a chance at winning, Hillary was the only one that had anything resembling a plan to help rural America. Hillary's plan just didn't resonate because it basically was modernizing rural America, and rural America wants to relive a past that is no longer achievable.    Unfortunately a libertarian is probably an even worse choice for rural areas. While a libertarian would cut federal taxes, they also would significantly cut spending to things like infrastructure where rural areas have a disproportionate maintenance cost to local tax revenue ratio. The Libertarian "privatize everything" or "leave it to the states" mentality would likely lead to many roads becoming toll roads in order to pay for maintenance. And those tolls are by and large paid by locals, increasing costs of local goods and making area businesses less competitive.
    • Well, OSU is going to the playoff, and Wisconsin and Michigan are getting at large bowls. That leaves Minnesota as the #4 remaining team.
    • +1 on striker ice love mine    
    • I know of which you speak and they were full when I stopped by for my new fav Ghost Pepper beef sticks on the last weekend. Well I stopped by on the 1st-2nd and last weekend for the beef sticks! I use to cut up all my Deer until I and the wife wanted some of those more fancy brat's and sausage I just couldn't do.
    • My FXR sled jacket and bibs have the F.A.S.T Flotation Assistance system Technology in them so I get dlb duty out of the suit sledding and Ice fishing. Right now Cab's up in Rogers has the FXR outdoor suits but they aren't cheap. Love mine.    
    • Those look Great. Most of the time just crock potted them to death! 
    • Glad to hear it isn't the local 172 processor people complained about last year.    I was happy to have the needed "facilities" back this year.  Set up, skinned, sliced, diced, vacuum packed and cleaned up in 3.5 hours.  No, that doesn't include the grind, but we do take that in.
