    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Grills vary widely, so you may need to experiment with the heat setting. For my propane grill, I use medium-high heat, or even high heat, high enough to sear/brown the meat dish when I throw them on the grill.).
    2. 2
      Wash potatoes and cut into slices 1/4 inch or so with skin intact.
    3. 3
      Slice onion into thin slices, then separate into rings.
    4. 4
      On heavy duty aluminum foil, about 18" to 24" long, put in the center a layer of potatoes (leaving plenty of foil on each side and each end to fold and seal the packet).
    5. 5
      Follow with a layer of onion rings.
    6. 6
      Sprinkle with salt, pepper, and a hint of garlic (powder, or freshly minced).
    7. 7
      Repeat layers, dotting each second layer with butter.
    8. 8
      Wrap the foil securely around the layers. Should make a packet about 15"-18" long and 10" wide.
    9. 9
      Put the foil package on the grill about 45 minutes to an hour before the intended serving time. (These can also be prepared as described, but placing the packet in a stainless steel skillet on the stove top. Or in the oven. Be creative!).
    10. 10
      It’s okay if the bottom layer “caramelizes;” some will love those bottom pieces!

      What a wonderful aroma - the other campers all wanted to know what that wonderful smell was coming off our grill! And they taste terrific too. Have used both fresh and granulated garlic, both taste great. Using real butter is a must.

      I really liked these and I don't even like potatoes much. I did peel the potatoes because I can't eat the skins for health reasons and I cooked them in the oven at 450 for one hour as it was too chilly out to grill and they were very tasty. I used lots and lots of fresh garlic and skipped the salt for personal preference. We will definitely have these again, especially when we are able to start grilling more regularly. Thanks for posting!

      Had these with grilled pork chops, DH fixed them and followed your directions to the letter. Perfect taste and appearance, easy, economical, and easy to clean up afterwards. Thanks AzArlie for sharing:) Made for the All New Zaar Cookbook tag.
