  • Prepare four foil squares large enough to fold over one potato each. Spread butter onto foil in a large enough area that the potato will be completely covered when rolled up. Sprinkle salt, garlic, pepper, and Italian seasoning evenly over foil. Roll each potato in the foil; puncture the package (including the potato) with a fork or knife a few times.

  • Grill for 1 hour, or until soft, turning the potatoes often. Serve with your favorite toppings.

Partner Tip

Reynolds® Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.

Nice twist on the average baked potato on the grill! I wimped out on the amount of seasonings particularly the amount of salt and for our tastes I'm glad I did. I only used as much of the seasonings as I felt comfortable with probably half of what was called for. Along with the salt (I used Kosher) garlic powder and pepper I used a Tuscan seasoning blend that I just love and the flavor came through noticeably but subtley. I pierced the potatoes before wrapping in foil but because of the butter did not pierce the foil - didn't want any of that good seasoned butter to seep out! Unfortunately the long cooking time on the grill turned the seasonings very dark so much of it had to be scraped off. In the future I'll precook the potatoes in the microwave for a minute or two then finish them on the grill. Read More

I cut the potatoes up into wedges because I didnt want to wait an hour for them to cook. And I added some parmesan cheese. I love all the flavour in these. I will make these all the time. Read More

These were yummy. The only thing I'd recommend is poking the potato before wrapping and then poking the tin foil we ended up with little bits of tin foil in the potato doing it all at once. Very yummy tangy skins and perfectly cooked inside. We made it with a one hour drunken chicken recipe and everything came out at the same time. Perfecto! Read More

I'm giving this five stars even though my husband didn't like the "saltiness". I loved them! I cheated and partially microwaved them to cut down on the cooking time. I didn't use the italian seasoning. I used kosher salt and mixed the spices in a little dish. I rubbed the potatoes with a little olive oil and then sprinkled everything on them. When they were done I put a little sour cream on the side. I'll definitely do these again but with a little less salt for my husband! Read More

Nice twist on an old familiar. I brushed the foil with olive oil instead of butter. The potato skins were soft and had great flavor. Read More

These are WONDERFUL!! Even DH was talking about them a couple of days later and says they get "thumbs up" which is high praise from him since he's pretty spoiled by my cooking! I DID lessen the salt (trying to behave!) and didn't try the italian seasoning this time but the flavor was absolutely excellent... my charcoal grill was jacked up to about 600 degrees with the lid on so the potatoes took less time to cook but didn't burn and were tender and flavorful through the entire potato. I was cooking steaks too so built the fire on one side of the grill and put the potatoes on the opposite side from the fire. Perfect!! I will make these again and again maybe trying different seasonings. Thanks for a great recipe Leslie! Read More

We liked these a lot but I think if we were to make them again we would not poke holes in the foil. We did this and the result was massive flare ups on our BBQ (as the butter melted and oozed out). Also we did not add the Italian seasoning because we were out and we also reduced the amount of salt to about 1/2 tsp per potato. These were good and we will likely make them again. Read More
