Jazzed-up baked potatoes on the grill with a savory flavor. Super-simple, super-tasty too. Nothing says summer like fresh herbs.

  • Puncture potatoes on all sides with a fork. Coat each potato with olive oil, and season with salt and pepper. Place each potato on the end of a separate sheet of aluminum foil. Crush thyme and rosemary sprigs by hand, and place 2 sprigs of each and 1/4 of the crushed garlic next to each potato. Roll potatoes and herbs in the foil and fold over sides to seal.

  • Place potato packets on the preheated grill, and close lid. Cook 40 minutes, turning occasionally, until tender.

Overall very good. I cut the recipe in half and partially microwaved the potatoes to cut down on cooking time. I upped the garlic a bit and added a little kosher salt to the mix. I love the pairing of fresh rosemary and thyme. These were very good especially when served with "Grilled Delmonico Steaks" from this site. I think next time though in order to get more of the garlic and herb flavor to come through I might use a foil pan and cube the potatoes then toss them with the olive oil garlic herbs and kosher salt and then cook them on the grill.

Too much rosemary for my taste but otherwise the herbs made a flavorful potato. Thank you! Read More

Skins got too burned on the grill (and I love to eat the skins). I do them in the oven - 400 degrees for the same time as the recipe. Read More

Since my husband bowls on Friday nights & I wasn't feeling all that great (cold) I made these last night to go with our Valentines steak dinner. They were pretty good, I made them in the microwave (I love my microwave, it has a baked potato button & they "bake" perfect) so I sprayed them with pam cooking spray (instead of the oil) and wrapped them with the other ingredients in waxed paper. The rosemary was very distinct, so I may cut it in 1/2 next time. Thanks Rick! Read More

This really wakes up a baked potato. I followed the recipe, except I left out the thyme. The rosemary infused its flavor throughout the potato. The olive oil, garlic, pepper and salt added their flavors also. This is really good. I will be making this recipe often. Read More

If you bake these in the oven rubbed with EVOO and the spices and wrap these make a GREAT base potato for Potato Soup. Just cool slightly and cut each potato into eighths and continue with your soup recipe. Read More

The flavor of the herbs only flavors the skin but we like the skin. I pre-cooked the potatoes in the microwave because they were really big - double wrapped in heavy foil with the garlic and herbs. This is a nice recipe for summer time grilling. Thanks. Read More

I loved this but for only 2 people I used dryed Rosemary and Thyme with fresh garlic. I poked holes in the potatos and cut then in half to cook faster. It was a hit thank you. Janiec Read More

Instead of olive oil I rubbed the potatoes all over with Country Crock pretty good. Read More
