Tips for Making Grilled Potatoes:
When making grilled potatoes, be sure to use the heavy-duty foil that will not rip or tear. All foil is not created equal, so the name brands tend to work best for this.
Think of this as a baked potato with your favorite toppings for baked potatoes, you’ll enjoy those over these grilled potatoes too.
We like to use Vidalia onions if you have any on hand in place of the yellow onion too. It adds a great sweet flavor to the potatoes.
The mushrooms are optional and can be used if you like mushrooms, if you do not, just do not add them to the foil packet. These are great to customize because you can do individual foil packets for each person that will be eating the grilled potatoes.
