Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat grill for medium heat and lightly oil the grate.

  • Place a 24-inch long piece of aluminum foil on a flat work surface. Spread potatoes onto the middle of the foil. Drizzle vinegar and olive oil over the potatoes; season with onion powder, salt, and pepper. Dot the top of the potatoes with small chunks of butter.

  • Bring opposing sides of the foil up and around the potatoes. Fold the two edges together at the top to create a seam on the top of the packet. Fold the remaining two edges to seal the packet.

  • Cook potatoes in the packet on the preheated grill with the seam-side facing up for about 10 minutes, turn and cook another 10 minutes. Turn the packet once again and continue cooking until a fork stuck through the foil and into the potatoes meet no resistance from the contents, about 5 minutes more.

Cook's Notes:

You can use regular potatoes cut into 1 to 2-inch cubes in place of the baby-size potatoes.

Only fork-test near the end of cooking as this will release steam and juices.

Double up the foil if you are using a bargain brand. If you don't have a big grill you can keep the potatoes wrapped and on a plate while you grill your protein - they will stay warm. Be sure to open the packet carefully as the contents will steam and are very hot. Vegetarians can omit the butter and increase the oil with similar results.

I really liked this recipe! The balsamic gives it just the right flavor. Instead of drizzling the oil and balsamic over the potatoes I poured them into a gallon size ziploc bag and shook the cut up potatoes in the bag to coat well. Then I baked them in the oven at about 420 for 30-40 minutes. I will be making these regularly as they go very well with steak! Read More

This is a great recipe! I chopped some onion and cooked it in butter instead of using onion powder, and used a good aged balsamic vinegar. As my husband and I are trying to stick with a low sodium diet, I did not add any salt. The flavour of the onion and balsamic definitely gave this recipe the kick it needed! Read More

So good! I did not follow the recipe exactly. I had no onion powder used more olive oil (I don t like to measure) and totally forgot to add the butter. I was really worried the potatoes would simply steam in the packet on the grill instead of get the delicious crispy bits they get in the oven but I did not need to worry. They came out perfectly done with tons of flavor and crispy bits. I will absolutely make these again exactly the way I did. I didn t feel I was missing anything without the onion powder or butter.
