- Gather the ends of the foil and fold them over.
- Roll up the ends and crimp to seal the foil package up.

- If you like, drizzle the potatoes with a bit more olive oil.
Wonderful way to make baby potatoes. The garlic was great also. Very easy and super tasty, the husband loved them. Thanks.
I ended up having to do the potatoes in the oven (375 for 1 hour) as a thunder & lightening storm decided to come visit just as I was getting ready to BBQ. The garlic is heaven with the potatoes. They were golden on the bottom and when you pop that garlic on them Wonderful. Thanks tjsfu for a recipe that will be a favorite not just over the BBQ season but all year round I made this recipe again - used tiny new red potatoes - wonderful
One of those great classical recipes. Depending on the heat in the grill and the size of the potatoes, it can take a lot longer than 40 minutes to cook, so plan accordingly; it is better to leave it to cook longer than is absolutely necessary (this does not seem to have any negative effects on taste).
