Grilled Potatoes in a Pouch

The sun is setting earlier which means that Summer is quickly winding to a close, yet it’s not the time to shut down the grill.  If you remember this post with the Grilled Beef and Veggie Kabobs then you’ll remember that I said that I also made grilled potatoes in a pouch.

Here is the recipe for this quick and easy grilled side dish which I also made for my friends when they came to visit at the end of July.



  • 3-4 Russet potatoes washed and sliced
  • 1 Medium sweet onion sliced
  • 4 leaves of fresh basil
  • Aluminum foil
  • Butter Cooking Spray
  • Seasoning salt to taste


  1. Heat grill over medium heat.
  2. Pull out pieces of aluminum foil for individual servings
  3. Place a few slices of potatoes, onions, and basil in the center of foil
  4. Coat with Butter Cooking Spray
  5. Sprinkle with seasoning salt if desired.
  6. Place another sheet of aluminum foil over top, then wrap all sides to make a pouch but don’t seal too tightly as to not allow potatoes to steam.
  7. Place the foil packs on the top rack of grill.
  8. Close the lid and grill for about 10, flip the pouch and cook another 10 minutes.
  9. Open foil pouch and serve.

    Those potatoes look awesome, especially with the crust they get from grilling. I don’t have access to an outdoor grill. Do you think this recipe would work using the broiler?

      Hello PenPen, yes, I think it would work but would suggest baking them first so that you don’t have to keep them that long under the direct flame of a broiler.

    We love meals that don’t require heating up the house with the oven!

    A perfect dish for a hot summer day – the addition of the basil is an interesting twist, and we have basil out in the front yard. Pinned this.
