Long, lazy summer nights are made for BBQs, and these Herbed Grilled Potatoes in Foil are a must-have for any seasonal grill out. Quick, easy and simple to customize, these foil potato packets will become your go-to side dish for backyard entertaining.
No one wants to be tied up in the kitchen when you are entertaining, which is what makes these Herbed Grilled Potatoes in Foil so great for groups. Simply make a couple large foil packets for the grill or spoil your guests and serve everyone an individual potato packet. You can even prep the potatoes ahead of time and keep them in the fridge until you’re ready to grill them. Plus this recipe earns extra bonus points for not having to turn on the oven or dirty an extra pan. (That’s my type of recipe!)
Feel free to use whatever combination of herbs you like on the potatoes. I used a combination of parsley and rosemary in my recipe, but swap in whatever you have available. Oregano, thyme and even sage would be equally delicious.
You’ll notice that I recommend using butter AND oil on the potatoes. The combination of oil and butter allows the potatoes to be roasted at a higher heat than if you simply used all butter because the smoking point of oil is higher than butter. But don’t forgo the butter entirely! It adds a delicious, rich flavor to every bite, especially when you use grass-fed Kerrygold Salted Butter.
Do I have to parboil my potatoes before grilling?
No, you don’t, but I find that parboiling (or partially cooking) your potatoes before grilling them in foil packets will help them cook faster and brown more evenly. And everyone knows that people love those gorgeous, crispy brown potato bits the best!
Throw these Herbed Grilled Potatoes in Foil on the grill next to your burgers and brats for a quick and easy summer side dish at your next BBQ!
