RECIPE: Grilled Potatoes

Potatoes are easy to grow,  and inexpensive to buy. They compliment practically any type of meat. Here's a quick and easy,  tried and true recipe we use often,  especially during the summer months as it's easily prepared on a grill as well as in the oven!


INGREDIENTS:

5-6 Potatoes, cubed (We use Red, but any will do!)
2-3 Green Onions, sliced
2 Cloves Garlic, minced (or 1/8 tsp. Garlic Powder)
1 Tbsp. Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Salt and Pepper to Taste

Herbs to Taste: Rosemary, Thyme, Parsley (Fresh or Dried)
Chopped Veggies: Mushrooms, Celery, Carrots

PREPARATION:

Preheat oven to 400, or set grill to Med-Low heat.
Lay one end of an appx. 2' length of Aluminum Foil on a cookie sheet. Place potatoes and veggies in the middle of the foil. Drizzle olive oil over the potatoes and season with herbs, salt and pepper. Toss lightly.

Cover the potatoes with the loose end of the foil, and gently roll up the edges, forming a sealed packet around them. Place foil packet directly on grill grates, or on a cookie sheet in the oven.
Bake for appx. 45 minutes or until tender, OR Grill for about 20 minutes and flip the packet over. Grill an additional 25 minutes or until tender. The steam escaping the packet will be HOT! Use caution when opening it!

Serve with Sour Cream, Ketchup, or BBQ Sauce. Serves 4 as a side dish. ENJOY!
