Terrific Tin-foil Potatoes

Recipe by LorenLou

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

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

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Pull off two large sheets of heavy duty foil.
  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. Slice potatoes approximately 1/4" thick.
  4. (Peel, or not- up to you).
  5. Place in center of tin-foil.
  6. Slice onions and red pepper and pile on top of potatoes.
  7. Sprinkle the minced garlic, soup mix, thyme, and salt and pepper over the piled veggies.
  8. Dot with cubes of butter.
  9. Wrap tightly in the tin-foil, and cook on the grill about 30-45 minutes, or until potatoes are tender.
  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. You can also bake in the oven at 375 for 45 minutes.
  12. (Place on a jelly roll pan or cookie sheet for support).
