This post is inspired by my brother-in-law Dennis. Years ago, when he and my sister first invited me over for dinner, he make a dish he called grilled potatoes. I was hooked. I have make these for 1 and for 10+….they (almost) always turn out. I’ve even made them for people who HATE onions (with Walla Walla Onion- how could you hate them then?) When he first started making them, I remember he only used lemon pepper seasoning. Now, I typically use a different seasoning each time I make them. You will love them.
You all know I don’t measure, however I know people need quantities, so here is how I made the potatoes in the pictures.
Dennis’ Grilled Potatoes
3 potatoes, cleaned (and peeled if you prefer)
1 Onion, sliced
3 Tbsp Monterey seasoning
3 Tbsp olive oil
3 Tbsp butter (3 pats)
Take 2 sheets of foil and place on on top of the other. Fold the edges closest to you 3 times to “seal” the foil. Open it up, and set aside.
Slice potatoes and onion to 1/8-1/4 of an inch. Place all in a bowl, and cover with oil and seasonings. Toss to cover. Remove potatoes, one slice at a time, shingling them and placing the foil. Top with the onions, and 3 pats of butter. Fold the foil over the top of the potatoes and “seal”.
Place potatoes on a hot grill, and turn down temp, so you don’t burn the bottom.
Cook for 10-15 minutes. Allow to rest as the potatoes will continue cooking.
Serve. And enjoy!
