New Potato Packets with Parsley and Onions Recipe

by katerina on June 1, 2007

The title of this post leaves little to the imagination. The idea behind this is to literally wrap up a bunch of potatoes in some aluminum foil and stick them on the bbq so they cook, no fuss no muss, with other things. You could probably do this quite well in a grill tray but then they would fry and not steam and you would have a slightly different result. Plus I am grill tray-less so aluminum foil was the way to go. Any grill experts out there I am certainly welcoming your advice as this was purely my creation, method and all. The extremely informal recipe is below.
[print_this]New Potato Packets with Parsley and Onions

In a large bowl big enough to hold all the potatoes add a few teaspoons of Dijon then several healthy grinds of pepper and a large pinch of salt per person. Add a few good glugs of olive oil slowly while whisking it to form an emulsion. Take enough new potatoes to feed your group and chop the big ones in half or thirds so they are all about the same size. Add a sliced onion to the mix. Toss the onions and potatoes with the dressing. Wash, dry and chop a good handful of parsley and throw that on as well. Toss the bowl around to get a little bit of all the spices on all the potatoes. Get yourself several big pieces of aluminum foil and make a star (i.e. Lay one down, lay the next down perpendicular to it and then another piece to fill the two gaps). This is probably overkill but you know you won’t get any leaks. Gently pour the potato mixture onto the middle of our star and gather the aluminum foil at the top. Close, scrunching flat enough to fit in your bbq. Grill it for 30-40 minutes while you are cooking other things. Don’t forget to be careful when you open it up as there will be steam, toss onto a serving dish and away you go. If you are lucky enough to have leftovers, try frying them up with breakfast.
