This grilled potato recipe is so moist and delicious. It goes great with any meal or on its own, but my favorite is with steak. The cheese tops it off perfectly. Add mushrooms and carrots for an excellent variation. Delicious with sour cream on the side.

These potatoes were SO delicious. Easy to make too. The only modification I made was adding extra butter and a little bit of olive oil. I also mixed all of the ingredients with the exception of the butter which I dotted on once they were on the foil in a large bowl before assembling them on the foil. I threw them on the grill and forgot about them! Flip once...yum. Be sure to PAM the heck out of your foil too. Also make sure you slice your potatoes THINLY; otherwise they'll never cook right. I'll make these again & again. Read More

These were good but nothing special. I only used 3 potatoes since it was just hubby and I. I made the assembling easier by melting the butter and mixing in the minced garlic. I poured this over the potatoes and sprinkled them with dried parsley. They did take all of 20 minutes to cook and some of the potatoes and onions stuck to the packet. I recommend spraying the inside of the foil with pam before adding the ingredients. You could even mix everything together in a large bowl and then pour it into your foil packet. That way the butter would be distributed evenly. Instead of cheddar I sprinkled a little parmesan over the top. These did have good flavor and were fun to make along with our steaks but these just didn't knock our socks off. Glad I gave these a try. Thanks Kelly Read More

Quite yummy. I used baby red potatoes. I didn't use the grill. Instead, I put them in a baking dish and covered them with tin foil. I baked them at 350 for about 35 mins. They came out tender and flavorful. Read More

I used cubed unpeeled red potatoes for this dish. Parboiled for 5 minutes prior to grilling. Added a splash of olive oil and double wrapped in foil for grilling. Read More

I am always looking for different variations for my potatoes on the grill. This recipe is wonderful. The only change I made was that I used dried Italian seasoning instead of the fresh parsley because I didnt have any. I also sprayed the foil with PAM and this really kept the potatoes from sticking. YUMMY!!! Read More

There's nothing like potatoes on the grill. I used a small foil tin vs. foil packets that I sprayed with Pam to keep everything from sticking. I cut the recipe in half and used a combination of vidalia onion and red onion added a little olive oil and italian seasoning. I didn't have cheddar cheese so I used parmesan instead. Read More

This is a great fill-the-grill recipe. I have made it several times now and our standard is to include mushrooms. Skimping on the butter does no harm. Delicious! Read More

I had to cook the potatoes for a bit longer than stated on the recipe but they turned out very good. I added just a few extra spices for additional flavor. Read More

Great easy recipe. I used vidalia onions and red potatoes and then grilled over an open fire camping. It worked perfect!! Just remember to use PAM and flip your packets frequently. Read More

Great recipe!! What a tasty way to do potatoes on the grill...super variation on the old steak and boring baked potato! After reading several reviews I made the following changes: used red potatoes skin on slice about 1/8" thick. Increased cook time by 5 minutes (10 each side 5 to melt the cheese). Used a foil pan covered with a piece of foil sprayed both the pan and the inside of the foil cover -- EASY CLEANUP!! Omitted the white onion. In the foil pan just placed the potatoes garlic and a few pats of butter. Crisped up several slices of bacon & chopped some green onion. In the last five minutes of cook time peeled back the foil tossed in the cheese and bacon. After 5 minutes removed from grill sprinkled with the chopped green onion and served with side of sour cream. Talk about melt in your mouth! Mmmmm. My new man was very impressed and loved these potatoes! Will make again and again and again!! Side note: these also made great breakfast potatoes the next day -- just heat & serve! Read More
