One of my favorite things (of, admittedly, many) to cook on the grill is potatoes in a foil packet. The packets themselves are so easy to put together, and the flavor of the end product really is amazing. I especially love it when the potatoes at the bottom – the ones closest to the grill flame – get a little charred and stick to the foil. I love crispy potatoes, so my husband is always kind enough to let me have the ones in his packet, too. He’s a pretty good guy, that one.
Bacon Ranch Foil Packet Potatoes
- 3 sheets of heavy-duty foil
- 10-12 baby red potatoes, thinly sliced
- 6 slices of cooked and crumbled bacon
- 1 packet ranch dressing mix
- Salt and pepper to taste
- 3 tablespoons butter
- Sour cream for serving, if desired
Spray each sheet of foil with cooking spray. Top each piece with equal portions of potatoes, bacon, and ranch dressing mix. Add salt and pepper to taste. Add 1 tablespoon of butter to each serving. Wrap securely.
Grill for 20 to 30 minutes. Let stand 10 minutes before serving. Serve in foil, topped with sour cream if desired.
