Potato Packets

Source: Everyday Food, July/August 2003


  • 4 pounds small red potatoes
  • 1 head garlic
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • Salt and pepper


  1. Heat the grill to medium. In a large bowl, combine potatoes, unpeeled cloves from head of garlic, and olive oil; season with salt and pepper

  2. Layer two large pieces (2 feet each) heavy-duty foil for each of two packets. Divide the potato mixture between foil pieces. Fold the foil over the potatoes, leaving room inside for the potatoes to roll when the packets are shaken; crimp the edges.

  3. Place packets on grill; cover. Cook until tender, 35 to 45 minutes, shaking packets often for even cooking. Remove from grill; let cool slightly, then carefully open packets. Serve hot.
