Shelly's Famous Potatoes

I got this recipe from one of the most awesome knotties in the world - mcvay! (LovesToNom) This dish was delicious! We made a non-pepper/onion version for Keith and he loved it as well. Yum!

(Serves 4)


* 5 cups chopped red potatoes (about 5 large) (I used russet potatoes)
* 1/2 cup diced red bell pepper (I omitted b/c grocery store was out)
* 1/3 cup diced green bell pepper
* 1/2 cup diced sweet onion
* 1 teaspoon garlic salt
* 1/2 tablespoon montreal steak seasoning (I used chicken seasoning.. tastes the same)
* 4+ tablespoons butter or margarine
* (I also added bacon bits and sour cream)
* Aluminum foil


1. Lay out about 2 feet of non-stick foil or non-stick sprayed regular foil.
2. Wash & scrub red potatoes clean. Chop up potatoes into bite sized pieces and place in single layer onto center of foil.
3. Dice peppers and onion and sprinkle onto potatoes, toss with hands if necessary.

4. Place little chunks of butter or margarine over top, space out as necessary.
5. Sprinkle garlic salt and steak seasoning evenly over mixture (amount may be adjusted to taste).
6. Fold foil up over the mixture, covering everything. Take another piece of foil and wrap in opposite direction to make sure the packet is leak-proof.
7. Buy awesome new Kenmore grill :)

8. Place on grill at medium heat (about 350-400 degrees) for 35-45 minutes (flip over packet halfway through cooking), depending on your grill and your potato firmness preference.

9. Cut open foil pouch and serve, careful of the steam!
10. If desired, add additional toppings here (bacon bits, sour cream, etc.) Enjoy!
**Note: If there is not enough butter or you cook the potatoes too long they will stick/burn to the foil.

We served the taters with grilled chicken breast. So delicious!
