Grilled seasoned potatoes

Thrifty Mommy is hosting this week's Carnival of the Recipes, and the theme is "grilled food." The advent of summer means that it is time to head for the grill. I love when we grill out - probably because I don't grill; Mr. Incredible does. I do all the food prep, and he handles the actual cooking. That's a nice break for me, and he really enjoys grilling out; so this is definitely a win-win situation for us.

All right; here is my contribution to the "grilled food" roundup:

Grilled Seasoned Potatoes

10 medium potatoes
1 pkg Lipton Onion Soup mix (or) seasoned salt to taste
butter or margarine

aluminum foil

Wash the potatoes, leave the skin on, and cut them into 1-inch cubes. Tear off two pieces of aluminum foil about 8-10 inches each. Onto the center of each piece of foil, place half of the cubed potatoes. If using the soup mix, pour 1/2 of the package over each mound of potatoes; otherwise, sprinkle liberally with seasoned salt. Add several pats of butter. Fold the foil over the potatoes, rolling the edges together to make sure that each packet is securely sealed. Place on a preheated grill and cook for 20-30 minutes or until potatoes are tender. Serves 6.

If you have a favorite grilling recipe, why don't you participate in this week's Carnival of the Recipes? Submission is easy, and entry deadline is noon on Saturday. Happy grilling!
