Grilled Potato Packets

Grilled Potato Packets

2 large potatoes, sliced
1/2 medium onion, diced
1/2 red pepper, diced
1/2 teaspoon Cajun seasoning, divided
3 tablespoons butter, divided

Spray 2 sheets of aluminum foil with non-stick cooking spray.  

Divide the potatoes, onion, and red pepper evenly on the aluminum foil.  Sprinkle 1/4 teaspoon Cajun seasoning over top.  Slice butter.  Place 1 1/2 tablespoons butter on top of potato mixture.

Close foil around ingredients.  Grill over medium high heat, 5 minutes on both sides.  Remove to top rack of grill for 5 minutes on each side.  Grills vary, so cooking times are approximates.

Be careful when you open the packets; the steam can burn you.  Makes 3 to 4 servings.

When it is hot outside, cooking in a slow cooker or on a grill are my preferred methods.  You get delicious food without heating up the house.

I love grilling because my husband does most of the work.  I just do the prep, then sit back and watch him play with fire.

  1. Linda, that is absolutely my kind of cooking in the summer heat. My kids love opening the little packages on their plates :)
