Cheesy new Potatoes Hobo Pack
This is a really easy side dish when you already have the grill – or Big Green Egg fired up!
Non-stick cooking spray
1 lb. fingerling, round red or tiny Yukon potatoes, quartered (I used Yukon gold small potatoes)
¼ cup chopped yellow, sweet onion
1 tsp, snipped fresh thyme
¼ tsp. salt
¼ tsp. ground black pepper
5 ounces of your favorite cheddar cheese, shredded
- Fold a 36×18 inch piece of heavy foil in half to make an 18-inch square. coat foil with nonstick cooking spray. Place potatoes, onions, thyme, salt and pepper in a large bowl. Mix together with hands (as to be gentle on the potatoes). Pour mixture in center of foil. seal with a double fold. fold remaining edges together to completely enclose potatoes, leaving space for steam to build.
- For a charcoal grill, place packet on the rack of an uncovered grill directly over medium coals. Grill for about 35-40 minutes or until potatoes are tender. For a gas grill, preheat grill. Reduce heat to medium. Place packet on a grill rack. Cover and grill as previously mentioned.
- When tender, remove potatoes from the grill to rest. While resting, carefully open packet and sprinkle potatoes with cheese. Loosely pinch packet back together and let potatoes stand about 2-5 minutes or until cheese melts. Makes 4-side-dish servings.
