Great potatoes! I baked mine because of the weather and we really enjoyed them. I think that next time I make them I will replace the dill with Italian Seasoning. Thanks for sharing this easy keeper. Made for Best of 2012 Tag.

This recipe is heading into my favorites file! I loved how easy and convenient this side dish was to do as I was grilling the main dish. I kept my packet of potatoes on the grill for about 20 min...maybe a tad bit more...on med-high flame. They actually browned up a bit, which I LOVE but didn't expect with this method. I was happily surprised. I was surprised to see that I was out of onions, so I ended up using shallots and they worked wonderfully! I used just a bit less of the dill - personal preference. Thank you for posting!

These were fabulous! I made as directed only cutting the recipe in half and adding some garlic and basil for the dill. Definately a keeper. Served with Pan-Fried Chicken Schnitzel-Style#395542, Baked Tomatoes#7612 and asparagus. Made for Cooking from the Pantry Challenge tag game and Diabetic forum.
