Grilled Potato Packs

Grilled Potato Packs


  • 2 pounds Yukon Gold potatoes
  • 1/2 sweet red pepper diced
  • 1/2 onion diced
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • Sharp cheddar cheese grated (optional)
  • Fresh chives garnish


  1. *Pre-heat grill to medium-high heat.
  2. Scrub potatoes and dice to approximately ½ inch squares. Keep the size of your potatoes as consistent as possible to allow for even cooking.
  3. Cut two large pieces of foil. Split potatoes, sweet red pepper, and diced onions evenly between the two pieces of foil. Drizzle the potatoes with olive oil and season each packet with minced garlic, red pepper flakes, kosher salt, and black pepper. Add other seasonings as you desire.
  4. Fold the foil in half. Roll the foil to seal the top. Take the ends and roll until sealed. You want to have some air in the packet so don’t roll tightly against the potatoes.
  5. Place the packets on the grill and grill them for about 20 minutes, shaking and turning a few times during cooking to make sure they are cook evenly. If you are using a charcoal grill, use indirect heat to prevent from burning.
  6. When potatoes are tender and easily pierced with a fork, remove from grill. If you want cheesy potatoes, use an oven mitt to unroll the top of the foil and add cheese. Lightly close the packet and let sit for 2 minutes or until cheese is melted.
  7. Open packets and garnish with chives and serve immediately!
