WHB – Grilled Rosemary Potato Packets

I am almost embarrassed to be calling this a recipe, and especially for using it for Weekend Herb Blogging. But it is so simple and so good, you really have to try it. Weekend Herb Blogging is being held by Kaylyn this week.

Grilled Rosemary Potato Packets

sliced potatoes
olive oil
salt & freshly ground pepper
fresh rosemary sprigs

Preheat grill. On a sheet of aluminum foil, drizzle a little olive oil. Place enough sliced potatoes for one person. Salt and pepper to taste and place a fresh rosemary sprig on top. Close packet by crimping foil. Grill rosemary side down, for 7-8 minutes, turn over and grill for another 7-8 minutes (you want it for a total of about 15 minues). Be careful when you open the packets, the steam is hot.

I use rosemary, I feel it has such an affinity for potatoes, but you could use any herb of your choice. I place the rosemary side down first, because that allows it to really brown first and start flavoring the potatoes right away. Sorry I don’t have an “after” picture, but we all just started eating them, they were so good, and forgot to snap a pic!

    I agree, rosemary is so perfect with potatoes. This sounds delicious, and perfect for a busy night or a dinner where there were a lot of other things that take time! I think most people like simple recipes the best (unless they’re cooking snobs of course, which I most definitely am not!)

    kalyn, it really is perfect for a busy night or when you are making something a bit more complicated to go with it. What I like about it, is you can prepare it a little ahead of time (since the potatoes are wrapped in foil, they don’t discolor).

    Rosemary and potatoes are perfect together. I have been making pan-loads of roasted new potatoes using the rosemary from my garden. This is a very nice recipe and I like the idea of turning the rosemary side down first.
