Pouch-Grilled Potatoes

Remember how I told you that the latest edition of Everyday Food has tons of yummy looking recipes and I wanted to make them all? Well, I made the Pouch Grilled Potatoes last weekend and they were OH-SO-DELICIOUS!

I've grilled potatoes before, but I NEVER would have thought to top with them cilantro & lime. Sounds odd, but was a perfect combination. The Hubs was hesitant to put the lime on his, but he trusted my word that it was yummy and he loved it!

We will definitely be making this one again soon.


* 1 1/2 lb. new potatoes, sliced (or just halved if they are small)
* 4 garlic cloves, skin on
* 1 Tbs. EVOO
* coarse salt and ground pepper
* 1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
* lime wedges, for serving


1. After you've sliced the potatoes, put them in a bowl & toss with EVOO.

2. Arranged the potatoes & garlic on a double layer of foil. Season with salt & pepper.

3. Fold foil around potatoes & crimp edges to form a packet.

4. Grill potatoes directly over heat source, rotating packet often, until potatoes are tender, 20 to 25 minutes.

5. Carefully transfer potatoes to a serving dish. Toss with cilantro & season to taste with salt & pepper. Serve with lime wedges.

My Tid-Bits:

* If your potatoes are done, but the rest of your meal isn't, just put the pouch over the cooler part of the grill to keep warm.

* Be very careful when opening the foil packet. There will be steam & the potatoes are HOT!
