I like to have potatoes in the summer but I don't like heating up the kitchen (not that that has been such a problem this summer). I like to grill them. This is a good recipe because there is minimal clean up. Cooking in foil on the grill is just great. Since we've had a bit of warm weather the last few days, I thought I better share this recipe.
Grilled Foil Potatoes
6-8 potatoes (yukon, russet, red)
fresh herbs (tarragon or rosemary, thyme)
olive oil or butter
Cut potatoes into large chunks. Place on large piece of aluminum foil. Either toss with olive oil or use about 2T of butter cubed and even distributed. Season with herbs and salt/pepper. You can also add a splash of vinegar (I used Kressi this time but Seasoned Rice Wine Vinegar might be nice) or even a splash of white wine. Seal foil. Cook on grill at 350 for about 45 minutes or until potatoes are tender.
Sometimes the potatoes get a little burnt on the bottom and those are my
favorite. They didn't get like that this time - I guess the Sous Chef
was diligently monitoring the grill a little more closely this time around.
