Packet cooking is an excellent idea. By using your barbeque to prepare even your side dishes, it keeps your kitchen cool during hot weather and cleanup is a cinch. I hope you enjoy this simple, easy side dish!

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat and lightly oil the grate.

  • Spread a piece of aluminum foil on a work surface. Arrange potatoes, onion, bacon, and garlic in the middle of the foil. Drizzle olive oil over potato mixture and season with salt and pepper; toss to coat. Wrap foil around potato mixture to form a packet.

  • Place packet on the preheated grill and cook until potatoes are tender and bacon is cooked, about 15 minutes. Carefully open packet by slicing foil with a knife.

Cook's Note:

I like Yukon Golds for my potatoes, but use what you like.

It was nice to grill our entire meal but the bacon never got done (and I used thin bacon for just this reason). The potatoes and onions were almost overdone when I waved the white flag for the bacon. Aside from the bacon issue (which may just be me) these flavors were just ok for me. I prefer roasted potatoes. THANKS for the recipe (and a cool kitchen;) )! Read More
