These foil-baked potatoes are easy to prep on the grill on our boat. I take a small bag of potatoes, the seasoning already mixed in a container and a small bag of cheese. All I have to do on the boat is cut the potatoes and mix in the seasonings, make foil packets and grill. The result? Cheesy, buttery, melt in your mouth deliciousness.
Yukon gold potatoes are buttery and creamy in texture. They have thin skin and a yellow flesh. They are fat free, saturated fat free, low in sodium, an excellent source of vitamin C and a good source of potassium. A half cup has 70 calories, 3 grams of protein and 2 grams of fiber.
Every grill heats up and cooks a bit differently. Our grill set to 400 cooked the potatoes in about 20 minutes. The first time you make them you will have carefully open the packets and fork test for tenderness. Make note of how long it took to cook them so you know the next time. (You will love these so much that you will want to make them again)
You could also make these in your home oven!
Foil Baked Yukon Gold Potatoes
Makes 3-4 servings
1.5 pounds mini Yukon gold potatoes, quartered
2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil or Trader Joe’s Garlic Olive Oil
3/4 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp dried oregano
½ tsp kosher salt
¼ tsp (or more) red pepper flakes
¾ cup grated parmesan cheese
Cut 2 pieces of 14 inch Reynolds Non-stick foil.
In a large bowl or resealable bag, toss the potatoes with the oil, garlic powder, oregano, salt and red pepper flakes. Toss to coat evenly.
Divide the potatoes evenly between the pieces of foil.
Gather the ends of the foil lengthwise and make one fold, then another. Your packets with be approximately 12 x 4 inches. Do the same to the ends. Move the potatoes around in the packets so evenly distribute. Repeat with the other foil and potatoes.
Place the packets on a prepared grill. Cook about 20 minutes, carefully open the packets (there will be hot steam) and pierce with a fork. You might have to cook longer depending on the heat of your grill. When they are tender, fold back the foil, sprinkle with the parmesan cheese and continue cooking about 2 minutes.
