Grilled Potato Hobo Packs

Grilled  Potato Hobo Packs
Original recipe by Cooks Country


2 pounds Yukon Gold potatoes (about 3 large), scrubbed
1 tablespoon olive oil
3 garlic cloves, peeled and chopped
1 teaspoon minced rosemary (or minced thyme)
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper


Step 1

Cut each potato in half crosswise, then cut each half into 8 wedges. 

Place potatoes in large bowl and wrap tightly with plastic wrap.  Micro-wave until edges of potatoes are translucent, 4 to 7 minutes, shaking bowl (without removing plastic) to redistribute potatoes halfway through cooking.  Carefully remove plastic wrap and drain well.  Gently toss potatoes with oil, garlic, thyme, salt, and pepper.

Step 2

Cut four 14 by 10-inch sheets of aluminum foil.  Working with 1 sheet at a time, spread one-quarter of potato mixture over half of foil, fold foil over potatoes, and crimp edges tightly to seal.

Step 3

Preheat grill.  Turn all burner to high, cover, and heat grill until hot, about 15 minutes.

Step 4

Grill hobo packs, covered, until potatoes are completely tender, about 10 minutes, flipping packs halfway through cooking.  Cut open foil and serve.

Serves 4
