Campfire Potatoes on Grill Recipe
If you’re grilling out, you’ll want an easy side that’s very budget friendly. One of our favorite things to make is potatoes when we’re grilling. We typically always have a bag of potatoes and onions at our home, so it’s the perfect thing to grab. Grilling happens at our house when the weather is nice and since you can’t always count on that, it’s typically a last minute decision.
When I was younger, I remember sitting around a campfire the last night at 4-H camp, and making our dinner over an open fire. We would put raw hamburger (don’t try this at home!), potatoes and onion in foil and throw it into the hot coals to cook. It was by far my favorite dinner of the entire week. It had the smokey flavor from the fire. I just loved that!
Now that I’m a little older, I wanted to have something that I could make as a side to the raw hamburgers cooking inside the hot grill. I wanted that fire cooked taste. Now, these are a little more adult with their parsley, but I think they’re delicious all the same. And while, I don’t sing around the grill as I make them, these campfire potatoes are a keeper.
9 potatoes, sliced
2 onions, sliced
6 TB butter
2/3 cheddar cheese
4 tsp dried parsley
2 TB Worcestershire
Layer the potatoes into a small metal pan that has been sprayed with cooking oil. You can also use foil, but I find it’s easier to use the disposable pans. And of course you can just throw the potatoes in there. I tend to layer them nicely since I think they cook more evenly, but sometimes when I’m in a rush I just throw them in the pan.
Sprinkle the cheese mixture onto the top of the potatoes and cover with foil. Make sure you put the foil on tightly. Place on the grill and cook for 35 – 40 minutes or until the potatoes are fully cooked. You’ll want to cook them on low on the grill when it’s temperature is around 350 to 400 degrees. If the grill is too hot, it will burn the potatoes before they’re fully cooked.
Mmmmmm. SOOOOO good! I hope you enjoy this potatoes on grill recipe as much as we did!
