Grilled Potato and Onion Side Dish

When you are turning on your grill to cook a chunk of meet, why not also grill your side dish.

1 potato
1/2 onion
1 Tbsp butter
Seasoning: salt, pepper, basil, thyme, oregano, dill.
Aluminum foil
(1 potato measure is good for one person. Multiply these measures for however many people are you cooking for)

Cut the potato and the half onion into 1/8 inch slices.

Place on the Aluminum foil and arrange the onions slices in between the potato slices.


Place butter on top.

Wrap the Aluminum foil tight. Fold the ends so that the butter and seasoning don't leak out.

Cook on the grill for about 30 minutes.

This dish is so simple to make, I could not possibly come up with any more words to write. But if you are still not sure you can do it, I found this book that might help you overcome your fear of grilling potatoes. You will need Kindle though:

ACTION POTATO- If you are obsessed with potatoes but you can't eat any more, here is a game you can play.

ActionPotato is a fun game that involves catching fresh potatoes to make potato stew. Tap pots to jump and catch potatoes thrown from the right side. If you catch a rotten potato, you lose the pot. But if you catch a heart item, a pot comes back.

Product Features

  • Catch fresh potatoes to make potato stew
  • Avoid rotten potatoes or you'll lost the pot
  • See how high you can score

There are some pretty great potato products out there:


  1. What kind of fire did you use? Medium? Would you set this dish in the back or off the flame a little bit?

  2. Med or a little higher is best. You want to brown the bottom of the potatoes and onions but not burn them. I would not set them off the fire as they would not brown. The brown bits are really tasty.

  3. Steve was really the brains behind this dish. I was only a pair of hands :)
