Grilled Potato Packets

Cooking potatoes in a foil packet means one less pot to wash, and highlights the delicate, earthy flavor of just-dug new potatoes.

 

Grilled-Potato-Packets

Ingredients :

2 pounds new potatoes,
scrubbed and cut into bite size pieces
3 medium shallots, thinly sliced
2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon lemon-pepper seasoning

Directions :

Heat grill to medium-high.

Meanwhile, place potatoes, shallots, oil, salt and lemon-pepper in a large bowl; toss to coat. Place two 24-inch-long pieces of foil on the counter and lightly coat with nonstick cooking spray. Arrange potatoes and shallots in a single layer, slightly overlapping, on half of each piece of foil. Leave a 2-inch border on all sides. Fold foil over and pinch the edges together, making two packets.

Place packets on the grill. Cover the grill and cook for 12 to 15 minutes, or until potatoes are tender.
