Foil-Wrapped Grilled Potatoes

Happy Saturday!  I hadn’t planned on taking a break from my blog for a few days, but sometimes life happens, ya know?  Jay had planned on working through the week and taking the weekend off, but he woke up so bone tired Thursday that he decided to take the day off, and then he took Friday off too.  So I’ve been busy with other things.  For those of you that don’t know, Thursday was also Canada Day here.  We cooked up some hot dogs and pineapple on the grill.  We’d never grilled pineapple before, and I quite liked it.  Here’s the hubby manning the grill:

We also decided to grill last night too.  We did some buffalo burgers and some potatoes.  I thought today I would share our favorite way of doing potatoes on the grill.  Here they are ready to come off the grill:

I like to start by pre-cooking the potatoes in the microwave.  I cut them into chunks and place them into a baking dish that has a lid.  Add enough water just to cover, then put the lid on and microwave them until they’re just shy of completely done. 

Then I pile them onto tin foil two sheets thick, or just one sheet if you have really heavy duty tin foil.  Dot them with butter, and season with salt and pepper or your choice of seasoning.  Next, sprinkle over some green onions.  Bring the edges of the foil together, and wrap it all up tightly.  Throw that on the grill, and let it cook away.  We let ours go about 15 minutes.  You may flip them halfway through, but we didn’t bother.

And there’s a simple recipe for cooking potatoes on the grill.  Perfect for your July 4th bbq!
