  1. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat and lightly oil the grate.
  2. 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.
