“I love grilling out side dishes along with the main dish, such easy clean up after dinner. This is a recipe I found on the Land O'Lakes recipes. Garlic and lemon are the flavorful seasonings in this easy grilled potato and onion recipe.”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 6 medium potatoes, washed, unpeeled, thinly sliced (6 cups)
  • 1 medium onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoons minced roasted garlic (purchased)
  • 1 tablespoon lemon zest, freshly grated (may substitute lemon juice but would increase it to 2-3 TBSP)
  • 12 teaspoon salt
  • 14 teaspoon ground pepper
  • 4 tablespoons butter


  1. Heat gas grill on medium or charcoal grill until coals are ash white.
  2. Mound potatoes and onion evenly among 6 (12-inch) squares heavy-duty aluminum foil sprayed with no-stick cooking spray (I love using the new non-stick foil - no spray needed). Sprinkle with garlic, lemon zest, salt and pepper. Dot each serving with 2 teaspoons butter.
  3. Bring edges of foil up to center; tightly seal top and sides of each packet.
  4. Place foil packets onto grill. Cover; grill, turning once, until potatoes are tender (15 to 30 minutes but will vary depending on grill temp).
  5. Oven Directions: Heat oven to 375°F Prepare potatoes and onion mixture as directed above. Bake for 40 to 50 minutes or until vegetables are tender.
  6. Recipe Tip.
