  • 6 medium potatoes
  • 2 small onions, halved and thinly sliced
  • 6 tablespoons butter, diced
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 6 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 tablespoon minced chives
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • Dash salt


  1. Prepare grill for indirect heat. With a sharp knife, cut each potato into 1/2-in. slices, leaving slices attached at the bottom. Fan potatoes slightly. Place each on a 12-in. square of heavy-duty foil.
  2. Insert the onions, butter and garlic between potato slices. Combine the cheese, chives, pepper flakes and salt; sprinkle between slices. Fold foil around potatoes and seal tightly.
  3. Grill, covered, over indirect medium heat for 35-45 minutes or until tender. Open foil carefully to allow steam to escape.
