Grilled Potatoes in Foil – this grilled potato recipe is buttery and delicious and is the perfect side dish for any meal! So easy!


  • Approx. 4-6 cups Yukon gold potatoes, cut into bite-sized pieces 
  • 1 tablespoon olive or avocado oil
  • 23 tablespoons ghee (or butter)
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • heavy duty foil


  1. Ensure grill grates are clean and preheat grill to 400 degrees F.
  2. Create a foil “boat” that is large enough to fit all of your potatoes.
  3. Spray the foil with oil or your preferred nonstick. 
  4. Place potatoes in the foil boat and drizzle with oil. Toss to coat.
  5. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and top with ghee (or butter). 
  6. Use another piece of foil to place on top and then pinch the edges to fully seal in the potatoes.
  7. Place on the grill (direct heat) for 15-20 minutes.
  8. Remove from grill and carefully open (steam will come out so be careful). 
  9. Serve immediately. 


  • Paleo/Whole30: ensure you use ghee if you are concerned with paleo/Whole30.
  • Variations: feel free to mix up spices you use. Options that would be good: Italian seasoning, fresh thyme, cracked red pepper, etc.
