    LorenLou's Note:

    A nice twist to potatoes/veggies on the grill! You can make them in the oven, too, if you're not grillin'!

    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Pull off two large sheets of heavy duty foil.
    2. 2
      Attach them together along wide edge, by making a"seam" in the middle (put edges together and fold over at least twice), so that you have one large sheet.
    3. 3
      Slice potatoes approximately 1/4" thick.
    4. 4
      (Peel, or not- up to you).
    5. 5
      Place in center of tin-foil.
    6. 6
      Slice onions and red pepper and pile on top of potatoes.
    7. 7
      Sprinkle the minced garlic, soup mix, thyme, and salt and pepper over the piled veggies.
    8. 8
      Dot with cubes of butter.
    9. 9
      Wrap tightly in the tin-foil, and cook on the grill about 30-45 minutes, or until potatoes are tender.
    10. 10
      (You may want to place foil packet on top of one more sheet of foil just to make sure it doesn't burn- depends on how hot the grill is!).
    11. 11
      You can also bake in the oven at 375 for 45 minutes.
    12. 12
      (Place on a jelly roll pan or cookie sheet for support).

      Have made similar packets,which were tasty. The only sub I made here was to use bottled onion soup sauce for the dried -- which I thought SHOULD have provided some liquid. These were dry and pretty much tasteless. Won't be using this recipe again. Sorry, LorenLou

      I'm only giving this four stars because I didn't use any onion or soup mix.. just the rest of the ingredients, and I left the skin on the potatoes. It was delicious, and I'll make this again very soon!
