recipe: foil potatoes with gruyere and goat cheese

I don't know about you, but at our house we like to take every opportunity to fire up the grill. Even in the middle of winter when it's snowing outside. Thankfully, it seems like Spring is here to stay so we don't have to freeze, which makes barbecuing much more enjoyable and gives me a reason to perfect my recipe for delicious foil potatoes on the grill.

I love to experiment and this is hands down, one of the best batches of foil potatoes I've made in a while. It's by no means anything spectacular or fancy but I love how the two very different cheeses add so much interesting flavor to simple potatoes.

To make these you will need the following:

Aluminum foil
1 gallon freezer bag
Potatoes, thinly sliced
Onion, sliced
Italian Seasoning
Garlic Salt
Olive Oil
Goat Cheese
Gruyere, grated (we love the cheddar/gruyere blend from Trader Joe's)

Take the freezer bag and add about 1-2 tbsp of olive oil to it, depending on the amount of potatoes you'll be using. Also add in all of your spices (ital. sasoning, garlic salt, pepper, paprika). No measurements here, so just a dash of each or however much you'd like. 
Add in your potaoes, zip it and shake it all well. 

Lay out large sheets of aluminum foil and spray with a bit of cooking spray.
Place a layer of potatoes down, add some onions and some gruyere cheese. Now add another layer of potatoes, onions and gruyere cheese over that. Lastly, cut some of the goat cheese up into slices or chunks (it's very creamy and soft, so whatever works). Place the goat cheese on top of the potatoes.

Now wrap up your foil packages tightly so that they can be flipped on the grill.
Place on the grill and cook until potatoes are done and cheeses have melted.

Delicious, I tell you!  

PS: I am no food photographer and I realize that these may not look all that amazing in the pictures, but I promise they do taste much better than they look ;)

  1. Yum! I have to bookmark this for the next time my husband gets on the grill!!

  2. Yum! Looks delicious.

  3. It always kind of makes me laugh when people say things like "Yay, it's grilling season!" There is a SEASON for grilling? You mean it has been MONTHS since you had a steak or a hamburger, just because it wasn't the right time of year? At my house we grill all the time, if it's cold we just pull the grill up to the deck door... Those potatoes look delicious, because really, who doesn't like potatoes and cheese?

  4. oh yum, these potatoes look great! i have never put potatoes on a grill, i must try!
