For this recipe we went with classic russet potatoes. They grill up beautifully and the thicker skin gets nice and crispy. You can also use red potatoes, Yukon gold, or fingerling. I don’t think you can make a mistake on which type of potato you use, they will turn out delicious!

The toppings and variations are everything! Potatoes are great for this reason. The mild flavor makes them easy to pair with just about anything, and you can really get creative with the seasonings and toppings for a fun potato bar experience.

  • Top with taco meat and all the taco fixings
  • Top with sloppy Joe filling

How To Make Grilled Foil Pack Potatoes:

Step 1. Cube potatoes and add them to a bowl. Combine with olive oil, seasoned salt, and pepper.

Step 2. Divide potatoes in a single layer on a foil sheet sprayed with non-stick cooking spray. Dot with butter than tightly fold on all four sides.

Step 3. Place foil packs on a grill set to medium high heat. Turn every 5-minutes for 20-minutes or until potatoes are tender and deep golden brown.

Step 4. Meanwhile prepare the toppings. Cook bacon until crispy and roughly chop. Shred cheese, and thinly slice green onion. When potatoes are cooked, top with cheese, bacon, onions, and sour cream. Serve immediately.

What If I don’t Have A Grill?

You can easily bake these foil packs in the oven on a sheet pan. Follow the foil pack instructions and bake at 425℉ for 25-30 minutes.

Recipe Tips:

  • Make sure to secure the foil packs tightly before placing them on the grill.
  • Don’t over fill the foil packs as will take longer to cook.
  • Place potatoes in a single layer to ensure each potato gets nice and crispy.
  • Allow to cool 5-minutes before opening. The foil will be hot.
  • Make sure to spray each foil sheet with non-stick cooking spray to prevent sticking.
