Cooking potatoes in a foil packet means one less pot to wash, and highlights the delicate, earthy flavor of just-dug new potatoes.


  • 2 pounds new potatoes, scrubbed and cut into 1/4-inch-thick slices
  • 3 medium shallots, thinly sliced
  • 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper


Heat the grill to medium-high.

Meanwhile, place the potatoes, shallots, oil, salt and pepper in a large bowl; toss to coat. Place two 24-inch-long pieces of foil on the counter and lightly coat with nonstick cooking spray. Arrange the potatoes and shallots in a single layer, slightly overlapping, on half of each piece of foil. Leave a 2-inch border on all sides. Fold the foil over and pinch the edges together, making two packets.

Place the packets on the grill. Cover the grill and cook for 12-15 minutes, or until the potatoes are tender. (When you open a packet to check doneness, be careful of steam). Serve immediately.
