Tip:  I leave the skin on for a few extra nutrients and to save time and effort.

Step 2:  Chop up onions into similar size as the potatoes.


Step 3:  Add potatoes and onions to a square of aluminum foil large enough to fold over and form a ball.   Before closing aluminum, add rosemary (or other herbs to taste).

Tip:  I add potatoes and onions on an approximately 2 to 1 ratio (more potatoes).   Approximately a fist sized portion per foil ball and each ball is a serving for one person (approximately).

Step 4:   Close the aluminum foil until all sides are covered and you have a ball about the size of your fist.  Place the potatoes into the embers of the fire (or the grill) and allow to cook for about 45 minutes.

Step 5:  Unwrap and serve.

  1. This sounds so easy. My son has to cook for his boy scout troop to earn a badge and I think this is a good side recipe that he can do pretty easily! Thank you, for posting. :)
