These grilled ranch potatoes are great as they are, or you can load them up with toppings like chives, sour cream, bacon, ham, salsa, or broccoli. You can set out the toppings so everyone can dress them just as the like.
What are the best potatoes to use?
I like to use baby red potatoes for these foil packets. They are waxy, so don’t fall apart when they are grilled, unlike Russets or Yukon Gold.
There’s no need to peel them, just give them a wash, cut them in half and you are good to go.
What do you serve them with?
These ranch potatoes are meant for the summer grilling season, and they are a great side dish for BBQ and all of your favorite grilled foods. Try them with:
- The packets should be fully sealed before adding them to the grill.
- Preheat your grill before adding the potatoes so that they cook through evenly.
- Take care when opening the packets, as they will be VERY hot!
