EASY Cheesy New Potatoes Hobo Pack

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

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
