Grilled Potatoes

No clean up and lots of ways to vary this basic recipe.


  • 3 potatoes, sliced thin
  • 1 medium onion, sliced
  • butter
  • Ad
  • salt and pepper
  • garnishes like green pepper rings and bacon


Spray heavy aluminum foil then pile the potatoes in the center, top with onion and garnishes. Top that with pats of butter and seasonings. Bring sides of foil together and seal tight so you can turn your potatoes over on the grill and the juices won't leak out.



Grill on medium heat around 45 minutes. Turn every 15 minutes.

When you are ready to serve, make a 2 inch slit in the foil along the fold to let the steam out then unfold the seam and serve right out of the pack.

When I met my husband (some 35 or so years ago) he showed me how to make Pioneer Hash. It is this recipe, only you also add hamburger patties (you can make in individual wraps) and some worcestershire sauce and whatever other seasonings you like. You can also cook this in the oven, if grilling is not possible.

This quick and easy recipe is always a hit during the summer!


  • 4 medium to large cleaned, unskinned potatoes
  • 1 onion, sliced or cut into chunks
  • Ad
  • 1/2 stick butter, sliced into 4 tbsp.
  • Dill weed
  • Salt
  • Ground black pepper
  • 4 sections of aluminum foil (12 to 14 inches each)


Pre-heat grill.


Slice potatoes into 6-8 lengthwise wedges each.

Place potato wedges on to open aluminum foil sections; top with onions.

Sprinkle with dill, salt and pepper to taste.

Top each with a slice of butter.

Fold over top of aluminum foil loosely and crease, then fold up ends of foil.

Place on medium-hot grill.

Cook for 8-10 minutes. Check 1 packet after 8 minutes. If the potatoes are not slightly browned, cook longer. Potatoes taste best when slightly browned.
