Easy Red Potatoes In A Foil Packet

DSCN2249Around this time of year, I can’t wait to grill out… We moved down to Florida and the end of last summer and we absolutely love our apartment and the entire complex – but we can’t have a grill.


It’s okay though because we have been trying different recipes to give us that “grill out” feel… Like these red potatoes!

These easy red potatoes in a foil packet are a no-fail every time! They are perfectly cooked and even get a little char if you let them cook long enough. I made these for our dinner the other night and my husband took and bit and said to me, “Is that butter?”, and I replied, “Nope!”

This whole recipe fed both of us and I only used 1 tbsp. of olive oil… So not only are they delicious, they aren’t soaked in butter and horrible for you 🙂



3 medium red potatoes, cubed
1 tbsp. olive oil
2 tsp. seasoning salt
1 tsp. garlic, minced (you can also use garlic powder)


  1. Preheat the oven to 450°.
  2. Wash potatoes in cold water. Cube the potatoes in bite-size pieces and place in a large bowl.
  3. Add olive oil, seasoning salt and garlic and toss until well combined.
  4. Place two large foil sheets side by side and spray with cooking spray.
  5. Take half of the potatoes and place on the foil, take the other half and place on the other piece of foil.
  6. Bring the foil up on the sides and fold together (make sure the packet is “tented” so there is room for the heat to circulate).
  7. Place the foil packets on a baking sheet or on a grill and cook for 30-35 minutes.
  8. Once they are cooked to your liking, take out of the oven and carefully open the foil packets. Enjoy!DSCN2248
