Here’s the third and last grilling recipe to end the week of grilling just in time for Labor Day.

We had grilled chicken, grilled ribeye (have you entered that awesome giveaway??) and now we  have a nice side dish to go with it all. Grilled potato packets, you guys! 

Conveniently prepared in single serving packets, these potatoes are cooked right on the grill. We slice the potatoes into thin slices so that they cook nice n’ quick. Garlic slices infuse each packet with its aromatic sweet flavor, as they slowly roast over the grill.

And the secret ingredient that breaths life into these packets is liquid smoke! As you can imagine, grilling the potatoes in packets doesn’t lend any of that amazing flavors from the grill. So the liquid smoke comes to rescue! Now it’s potent stuff here, but when used properly, it adds deep smoky flavor to everything it touches.

Be extra careful when measuring the liquid smoke, because you can easily ruin the dish by adding a little too much of it. And trust me, you don’t wanna ruin these fine potato packets!
