Yesterday evening we were grilling…and decided to whip up this Potatoes on the Grill Campfire Potatoes Recipe. In the past we tend to have always just cooked our meat on the grill. This year we have already made some yummy corn and now these yummy Campfire Potatoes. If you are a fan of seasoned potatoes loaded up with lots of garlic and onions you will really like this quick and easy grill recipe. These potatoes would make for a great side with just about any meal.
Potatoes on the Grill Campfire Potatoes Recipe
I prefer to grill out as often as we can. A no mess dinner option always excites me, ha ha! These potatoes require very little work and absolutely NO Mess. When warm weather sets in we are cooking on the grill almost every evening.
Be on the look out for a Potatoes sale. If you can not locate a deal be sure to consider shopping at Aldi. You will be able to snag potatoes and onions on the cheap. So Simple to make. You can wrap everything right up in your foil ahead of time. If you are headed to camp, they will fit right inside of a cooler. Prepped and ready to grill.
1 1/2 lb New Red Potatoes
1 large Onion
1 tbsp Minced Garlic
4 tbsp Butter
1-2 tbsp Worchestershire Sauce
1/8 tsp Cayenne Pepper
Salt and Pepper to taste
Slice potatoes and onion into 1/8 – 1/4″ slices.
Place on piece of aluminum foil large enough to fold over and to be able to roll up edges.
Top with garlic, butter, Worchestershire and cayenne.
Fold packet over and roll edges to close.
Leave on medium grill for 30 minutes or in 350 oven (in a pan to avoid messes) for 35-40 minutes.
This Campfire Potatoes Recipe will make a great side to just about any meat you are cooking up on the grill. We had them with some steaks last evening. The hubby and I both ate more potatoes than we did steak. They were so tasty and have just a little “kick” to them from the Cayenne.
Looks really good but, I used four small-medium potatoes, then followed the directions. After 40 minutes in the oven @ 350 degrees, they’re still not done! 😕. Going to put them back in for another 30 minutes and hope for the best. Just frustrated because the rest of dinner is ready.
We make this a lot usually add kielbasa to foil pack and sometimes cabbage. And a little garlic. Never have leftovers.
Sounds great with the sausage and cabbage.
I use Russets and Valdalia Onions, lots of butter, Sea Salt and fresh ground pepper. I double wrap the foil packets and if using camp fire do not put directly in the fire/flame but in the coals on the edge. We usually put them on the grill and grill till done before we cook the meats. We cook them in the oven in the winter and put the foil packets in a cast iron skillet and bake. Takes about 40 min for tender taters.
Sounds good! Can’t wait to try them!
Do you have to use red potatoes for this recipe
Thank you! Looks delicious!
Red potatoes hold up better than white or yellow potatoes, They don’t get as mushy
Gonna have to try these…I’m always looking for new ways to fix potatoes.
I’ve been making these for years and it’s always a favourite – except instead of using butter, we chop up bacon and toss that in instead. Yum!
