Grilled Potato Packets

I love wrapping vegetables up in a little foil packet and throwing it on the grill. It's a great low-maintenance way to cook. This "recipe" is so simple, I feel a little silly even putting this post together, but my sister thought these potatoes were really good, so I feel like it's worth sharing. This is a perfect side dish for camping.

1 lb. baby red potatoes (or another firm potato of your choice)
1 tablespoon butter
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper

Start by laying out a big piece of foil. Cut up larger potatoes, leave the small ones alone, and place on top of the foil. Add butter (cut up into small pieces), sprinkle on some salt and pepper, and drizzle on some olive oil.
Wrap up the foil to form a packet. I like to grab two sides together, roll them down, and then fold up the sides.

Place on a cooler part of the grill and let the potatoes cook for 10 to 12 minutes or until soft and cooked through. These packets can also be cooked in an oven at 350F. And you know, you could definitely do this with other root vegetables (e.g. sweet potatoes, parsnips, carrots).
Open the packet up carefully (watch out for steam) and enjoy.
A simple but really flavorful side dish. And the clean up is so easy.
