Grilled Packet Potatoes

Grilled Packet Potatoes


  • 3 Tbsp J. Olive Co. olive oil

  • 1 Tbsp J. Olive Co. Cloister honey

  • 1 Tbsp J. Olive Co. Salt Sisters kosher (or flavored) salt, plus more to salt the water

  • 1 tsp freshly ground black pepper

  • 1 1/2 to 2 pounds new potatoes, scrubbed and halved

  • 4 garlic scapes, scallions or 8 cloves garlic, skins intact

  • 1 Tbsp chopped parsley or other green herb


  1. Prepare a grill until medium-hot.

  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the J. Olive Co. olive oil, J. Olive Co. Cloister honey, J. Olive Co. Salt Sisters salt, and pepper.

  3. Bring a pot of water large enough to accommodate the potatoes to a boil. Cook the potatoes until they give a little when pierced with a knife, 5 to 7 minutes. Place a spoonful of the water in the mixing bowl with the other ingredients and whisk vigorously to combine. The hot water should help break up the honey.

  4. Drain the potatoes and toss them to coat with the honey mixture.

  5. Prepare four 12-inch squares of foil. Divide the potatoes between the squares and top with the garlic scapes, scallions or garlic cloves. Close the packets, sealing the tops to form a package.

  6. When the fire is ready, place the foil packets on the grill and cook for about 10 minutes, turning and shaking every few minutes. You'll need long metal tongs or fire gloves. Test a potato off the grill by carefully opening the packet and piercing one piece with the tip of a paring knife. It should be tender but not too soft.

  7. Finish with a pinch of chopped parsley and serve.
