grilled potato packets

Ok, the word recipe is maybe a stretch…  this is more like an idea.  As you would imagine, no measurements are included because you can really put whatever you want in these!

This is a simple family favorite that can be served along side ANY summer grilling dish!  I always make these when we have a crowd and people just love them.

Each person gets their own packet and I put out a spread of toppings including:

  • Sour cream
  • Bacon Bits
  • Cheese
  • Green onions

  1. We make these and add whatever meat each person wants to eat such as hamburger patty, chicken, shrimp porkchop, etc. Cook for the same amount of time and just eat out of the foil.

  2. YUM! We love to make these too while camping! We usually cut up carrots, celery, red/yellow/orange/green peppers, and sweet onions along with olive oil if we don’t have butter, and various seasonings (seasoning salt, garlic powder, montreal steak seasoning alonside the salt and pepper). We even add 1/4 of hamburger too (our boys love that part!) You’re making me hungry and I just finished eating! Can’t wait to try the baked potato bar style like yours!! :)

    • Yum! I bet adding the hamburger in would make the potatoes taste delicious AND it would make for a whole meal!! Great idea, can’t wait to try it!

  3. A little trick I learned is to put parchment paper under the potatoes so they dont stick to the foil. Works wonders :)

  4. I use to make packets also, having tater tots, onion, bell peppers….just for the flavor, and having another packet for chicken or pork chops, with seasonings! They are always a big big hit @ my house!
