Rosemary Potato Packets

Yes I was cooking chicken again, but this isn’t about the bbqed chicken or the fresh green beans, it’s about the potatoes. I have posted other potato packets which I make often because they have the vegetables in them, but this is my favourite potato packets. The onion, carrots, and potato packets are great when fresh garden vegetables aren’t available. Now we can get fresh garden vegetables from the market gardens so it is what we have all the time. I could of had baked potatoes or rice with the beans and chicken but I am kind of a meat and potatoes person so it was going to be potatoes. My wife suggested baked potatoes but honestly this is a way better than baked potatoes in the summer.

Rosemary is an herb that goes great with potatoes wether dried or fresh. Often I will put dried rosemary in the water when I boil potatoes, garlic cloves get in the water also. If you have never boiled potatoes with rosemary and garlic in the water you should try it, the mashed potatoes turn out great. For the packets fresh rosemary works best but you can use dried. If you use dried soak them in warm water for a couple of minutes first. This again is for two people so just bump things up for more.

2 potatoes sliced a little less than a 1/4 inch

2 sprigs rosemary

slices of butter about 2 teaspoons

cooking spray

tin foil

The rest is to taste so use as much as you like.

garlic powder

onion powder



Spray the shiny side of the foil with cooking spray. Place a layer of potatoes and sprinkle with rosemary,salt, pepper, garlic powder,and onion powder. Add another layer of potatoes and repeat then top with the butter slices. Seal the packet tightly, light the BBQ and place the packet on and close the lid. The packet will take 20 minutes to cook, turn over after 10 minutes. Be very careful when opening the packet.
