I love grilling out side dishes along with the main dish, such easy clean up after dinner. This is a recipe I found on the Land O'Lakes recipes. Garlic and lemon are the flavorful seasonings in this easy grilled potato and onion recipe.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 6 medium potatoes, washed, unpeeled, thinly sliced (6 cups)
  • 1 medium onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoons minced roasted garlic (purchased)
  • 1 tablespoon lemon zest, freshly grated (may substitute lemon juice but would increase it to 2-3 TBSP)
  • 12 teaspoon salt
  • 14 teaspoon ground pepper
  • 4 tablespoons butter


  1. Heat gas grill on medium or charcoal grill until coals are ash white.
  2. Mound potatoes and onion evenly among 6 (12-inch) squares heavy-duty aluminum foil sprayed with no-stick cooking spray (I love using the new non-stick foil - no spray needed). Sprinkle with garlic, lemon zest, salt and pepper. Dot each serving with 2 teaspoons butter.
  3. Bring edges of foil up to center; tightly seal top and sides of each packet.
  4. Place foil packets onto grill. Cover; grill, turning once, until potatoes are tender (15 to 30 minutes but will vary depending on grill temp).
  5. Oven Directions: Heat oven to 375°F Prepare potatoes and onion mixture as directed above. Bake for 40 to 50 minutes or until vegetables are tender.
  6. Recipe Tip.
  7. Place potatoes and onion in disposable aluminum pan. Sprinkle evenly with garlic, lemon zest, salt and pepper; top with butter. Cover pan with heavy duty aluminum foil. Grill as directed above, stirring occasionally, until vegetables are tender (25 to 35 minutes).

Yummy potatoes. I added a little lemon juice to the zest to get a little more lemony flavor. Thanks for sharing. Made for What's on the Menu tag.

These were good, but I found the lemon zest wasn't quite what I was looking for. Would try with lemon juice instead. Thanks! Made for PAC Fall 2012

A truly wonderful way to cook potatoes, that is simple, easy and tasty.
As a family we weren't so taken with the lemon, but loved the garlic and next time we'll skip the lemon and play around with some other flavours instead.
Nevertheless, it's a great recipe, and a perfect springboard to launch other ideas thanks diner x
