  1. Preheat an outdoor grill for high heat; close cover. Lay out three 18-inch long pieces of aluminum foil on a work surface, dull side facing up.
  2. Smear 1/2 tablespoon butter in the middle of the first piece of foil. Add 1/3 of the potato slices, onion, and bell pepper. Sprinkle with 1/3 of the garlic powder; season with salt and pepper. Fold up the edges of the foil over the vegetables to create an almost leak-proof packet, making sure to seal the edges. Repeat with last 2 pieces of foil and the remaining ingredients to make 2 more packets.
  3. Reduce the heat of the grill to medium. Place foil packets on the grate; cook until potatoes are tender, 20 to 30 minutes.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • You can chop, dice, or slice the onion and bell pepper, whichever your prefer.
  • Cooking spray or margarine can be used in place of butter, if desired.
  • Sometimes I use minced dried onions when I don't have any fresh. I've also used fresh garlic instead of the powder.
  • I also think that a splash of Mrs. Dash® instead of the salt works great and gives it even more flavor.

Made as written and these were good. Cook time was spot on but I do think they could use more seasoning. Overall good recipe and one I would make again.
