- Grills vary widely, so you may need to experiment with the heat setting. For my propane grill, I use medium-high heat, or even high heat, high enough to sear/brown the meat dish when I throw them on the grill.).
- Wash potatoes and cut into slices 1/4 inch or so with skin intact.
- Slice onion into thin slices, then separate into rings.
- On heavy duty aluminum foil, about 18" to 24" long, put in the center a layer of potatoes (leaving plenty of foil on each side and each end to fold and seal the packet).
- Follow with a layer of onion rings.
- Sprinkle with salt, pepper, and a hint of garlic (powder, or freshly minced).
- Repeat layers, dotting each second layer with butter.
- Wrap the foil securely around the layers. Should make a packet about 15"-18" long and 10" wide.
- Put the foil package on the grill about 45 minutes to an hour before the intended serving time. (These can also be prepared as described, but placing the packet in a stainless steel skillet on the stove top. Or in the oven. Be creative!).
- It’s okay if the bottom layer “caramelizes;” some will love those bottom pieces!
