Savory Grilled Potatoes

These potato packets are so easy to prepare ahead of time, then pack in the cooler for camping trips or picnics and toss on the grill when needed. The mayonnaise, seasonings and cheese really coat the potatoes and turn them into something special. —Darlene Brenden, Salem, Oregon

    In this house, you know they're good when no one reached for ketchup! Easy prep, SUPER easy clean up and no oven heating up the kitchen on a summer afternoon. Loved them. Will make again!

    I made this last night on the grill with grilled chicken breasts. Boy, was it good! My husband is not of "yard bird" fan and he cringes when I'm making chicken for dinner but he said last night, "Honey, this is good. I'm really enjoying it." I think the potatoes had as much to do with that comment as the chicken. These are really easy to make too. Messed up one bowl to mix them in then put them in foil. Can't get much better. I was a little hesitant about the mayo but it works so good and I'll make these again even just for hamburgers. Excellent. Thanks so much for a keeper.

    Used this recipe in foil packs over an open fire during our family camping trip. They were AMAZING!! We will use this on every camp menu from now on! I prepared the foil packs at home, and pulled them out of the refrigerator all ready to bake in the fire the night we had planned for them. Super good, and very easy.

    Wow! Surprisingly wonderful flavor. Finished product tasted different than sauce. Will do again.

    This is a great recipe. I've been making it for over a year now. I use olive oil instead of butter and it works out great. I also love garlic and add a few extra cloves.One word of warning: don't try to sub greek yogurt for mayo in the recipe. It just doesn't work out.

    I've prepared this for quite a few years now and it's perfect every time. Tonight I'm cooking it in the oven (too snowy for the grill). It works great too.

    My whole family liked this. I tripled the sauce ingredients plus added a 1/4 cup of sour cream. I cut up 6 medium baking potatoes (used my mandolin slicer) and tossed it all together, but divided the potatoes into 3 packets. Due to personal preference, I omitted the parsley, the onions, and the butter. They turned out amazingly! I suggest adding the sour cream. It made it perfect!
