Potato Bundles

by Melissa on August 26, 2009

I am always looking for new side dishes to have with dinner and while these are similar to roasted potatoes, cooking them on the grill means no heating up the oven! Not to mention the really easy clean up. These potatoes come out very tender and have plenty of flavor from the onions and parsley.  You could really use any herb that you wanted in these, and I think garlic would make a great addition as well. I know we will definitely be making these again on the grill while the weather is warm, then switching to the oven this winter. I did decrease the amount of butter and cream, as reflected below, and make sure you dice the potatoes small so they will cook in a reasonable time!


Potato Bundles

  • 6 whole Russet Potatoes, diced small
  • ½ whole Yellow Onion, diced small
  • 1/2 stick Butter
  • 1/3 cup Heavy Cream
  • Kosher Salt To Taste
  • Paprika To Taste
  • Freshly Ground Black Pepper, To Taste
  • 2 Tablespoons Minced Parsley, or any fresh herb

Pile potatoes and onions on a square of foil. Add 1/2 to 1 tablespoons butter. Splash on cream. Then sprinkle on salt, paprika, and black pepper. Sprinkle minced parsley over the top.

Wrap bundles tightly and bake at 375 degrees for 45 minutes, or until extremely tender. (Or grill on medium heat for ~30 minutes)

Serve bundles right on the dinner plate.

Such a versatile recipe – this would probably also work great with veggies, or even adding corn in with the potatoes.

I saw another recipe for grilling foil packets of potatoes just the other day, but I can’t remember where! Regardless, it sounds like a great idea. I just bought some metal skewers for the grill today, so maybe next week I’ll try to grill some potatoes with the kabobs I’m already planning.

Delicious! I can’t wait to try it during the winter. Nice and warm potatoes are great side when it is chilly out.
