Ingredients


Tips

No shallots? Use half a small onion.


Directions

Preheat the grill to 375-400 degrees.
Spread out a large sheet of heavy duty aluminum foil, then add the olive oil in the middle. Add the remaining ingredients, making sure the olive oil, thyme, and pepper are evenly distributed.
Seal the edges of the packet, place on the grill, close the lid, and cook for 25 minutes. Open the packet carefully (away from yourself to avoid steam burns).

Serve immediately.

Serves 4; 1 heaping cup per person

    I was short on time so I tossed all the ingredients to coat well and placed into microwaveable ovenware. I microwaved this dish for about 5 minutes and then spread it on a cookie sheet to broil in the oven for another few minutes. My family claims it's a keeper. YUM! - 6/2/12

    I make foil pack potatoes all the time but just throw stuff in. This was nice to have all the measurements and nutrition calculated for me. Thought there would be more garlic flavor than I tasted. Overall yummy! - 6/2/12

    Been doing this aver 40 years. So good. Foil packet cooking or grilling is not new, but easy, easy clean up, wonderful way to meld flavors. Used to make up the packets, stash them in a cooler and cook at a picnic site or camp site. They bake well in the oven too. - 6/2/12

    We do this all the time. So delicious. If we cook them on the grill, we microwave them first, for a few minutes so they don't burn before cooking through completely. - 6/2/12

    Tried it in the oven, Gas Mark 5, and they were still raw after 25 minutes. I'd parboil the spuds first next time. - 6/8/13

    Like the flavors but it isn't fully cooked in 25 minutes. Next time I'll quarter, instead of halve, the potatoes to see if they'll cook faster. - 7/30/13

  • Very good. Love potatoes cooked in packs. Garlic was great spread on crackers too. Used red onion instead of shallot (too mild) and was excellent. - 9/1/13

  • The garlic with young potatoes were delicious. I used fresh dill and green onions. Added just a little water to the pouch and barbecued it for about 40 minutes. - 7/31/13

    I ended up cooking this is the oven and cooking it for 40 minutes at 400 and the potatoes still were not done. I may try this again on the grill, but right now I'm unimpressed with it. - 6/9/13
