These Easy Rosemary Potatoes Baked in Foil have to seriously be one of THE easiest side dishes I’ve ever made. You can bake these in the oven or put them on the grill, and do you know what the best part is? NO CLEANUP!!! Woohoo!
Ok you guys, let’s dig into these potatoes! 🙂
So if you’ve been following my blog this last week, it’s been about more healthy recipes. I’ve been trying to get back on track with healthy eating again, because the cruise I was on over Thanksgiving totally did me in food wise.
Here’s a spoiler ~ there will be new Travel and Tastefulventures posts from some new islands we went to in the Caribbean! I’m super excited to share this with you, and I hope you are too!
Now let’s get back to these delicious potatoes!
I love using Yukon Gold baby potatoes. When I was living back in Minnesota I used to grill like all the time, even in the winter! Yes, I would be one of those crazy people outside on my deck with my winter boots, my winter coat, a hat with earflaps (picture the movie Fargo), just grilling away while all my neighbors probably stared at me through their windows, ha!
Well since we moved to Florida and simplified our life a little more by moving into a condo, I haven’t been able to grill. That’s the one thing I really miss about living in a house. However I do not miss shoveling snow, mowing the lawn, and taking care of a big house. So there are benefits to living the easy condo lifestyle. They do have community grills we can use that are down by the pool. But to try and pack everything up you need for grilling and trek it all down to the grill is such a pain. I did it once. We got all the way down there which is like a 5-10 minute walk and then I was like ‘Oh no, I forgot the ketchup’, so another 5-10 minute walk back to the condo and then back to the grill. It was just not a relaxing grilling day for me.
For me grilling should be a fun and relaxing experience. Where you’re sitting around on your deck or patio with family and friends, having a few tasty beverages, smelling the delicious food on the grill… yeah I miss that.
With that being said, this potato recipe I created back in Minnesota was originally for the grill. But I thought, well hey if I can grill it this way, I should be able to bake it this way!
Note: If you want to grill this, just cook it over indirect heat on med-high for about the same amount of cooking time. You can always check the potatoes for doneness by slightly opening the foil pack and sticking a fork in the potatoes to see if they are soft.
It’s really super simple, basically you just chop the potatoes, and onion. (Make sure you spray the lining of the tin foil with non stick cooking spray, I use Olive Oil spray).
Then add the potatoes first to the foil, top with the onion and garlic.
Sprinkle with Salt and Pepper.
Add fresh Rosemary sprigs over everything. Using fresh Rosemary will give you way more flavor then dried Rosemary, so I recommend using this. I found it is a little hard to eat though, so you can certainly remove the Rosemary once it’s cooked.
Then drizzle Olive Oil evenly over it all.
Simply wrap the foil up and throw it on the grill, or bake it in your oven! If you bake it in the oven, I recommend putting the foil pack on a baking sheet, just in case there’s any leaks.
