Grilled Rosemary Potatoes and Squash

I love grilling and one of my favorite ways to prepare vegetables on the grill is wrapped in foil. There is a smile on my face when I prepare this meal because no pots and pans are required for this recipe...easy clean up!
Fire up your grill we are about to get started!

Grilled Potatoes and Squash in Foil

 How to prepare the potatoes and squash:
Serves 2 adults and 2 children
double the recipe if needed

2 large baking potatoes, washed and peeled (or not peeled)
(you can use any variety of potatoes, I like using red potatoes as well)
2 small yellow squash
1 small zucchini
2 tsp fresh chopped rosemary
1 tsp fresh chopped parsley
an additional 1 tsp of fresh rosemary and parsley for the squash
onion powder to taste or 1/2 onion sliced
garlic and herb seasoning to taste
kosher salt and fresh ground pepper to taste
about 3 TBS butter for each foil packet

First, lay foil on a large cookie sheet and evenly dice your potatoes. Then add  herbs and seasoning. No need to measure ingredients, just evenly sprinkle and toss to coat. Last, top 1 TBS of butter in 3 different areas of the potatoes. Instead of using onion powder you can also slice 1/2 of an onion and toss it in with the potatoes.

Then fold the sides of the foil in creating a foil packet.

Next, double wrap in foil. If you are using heavy duty foil one layer may be enough.

Set potatoes on a hot grill and cook for approximately 25 minutes, turn occasionally. I cooked my foil packets at 450 degrees. Slice open and serve warm.

Prepare the squash as you would the potatoes only cook the squash no longer than 10 minutes.

  6. As you know, I love grilling everything, including potatoes and squash (but usually I just grill the squash sliced right on the grates). I started going through the 50 things to grill in foil link and realized that I think I do most of these but in a cast iron skillet and then around 20 the ADD kicked in and I closed the link. Thanks for sharing it, though. What kind of grill do you use, BTW?
