  • 4 Idaho potatoes, cleaned and cut into 2 inch cubes
  • 1 Vidalia onion, peeled and diced
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 sprig fresh Rosemary optional
  • 3 Tablespoons Barlean's coconut oil or olive oil
  • 1 large piece of aluminum foil
  • nonstick cooking spray
  • 1/2 cup low-fat shredded Colby Jack/ cheddar cheese


  • Pre-heat grill to 550 degrees.
  • Place a large piece of aluminum foil on a solid surface. Spray with nonstick spray. Add the cut potato slices, diced onions, garlic powder, salt and pepper to taste, a sprig of rosemary, and Barlean's coconut oil flavored with butter or olive oil. Mix ingredients well.
  • Fold the aluminum foil down as in pictures above..like wrapping a present. 
  • Reduce heat on the grill to 424 degrees. Place the foil packet potatoes on the grill and let roast about 25 minutes. 
  • Open the foil packet, potatoes should be tender. Sprinkle the cheese on the potatoes and let melt. About 1 more minute. Serve and enjoy!


  • Keep the potato slices uniform to maintain even cooking.
  • The size of the potatoes and your grill heat can affect the cooking time. Please check the potatoes after 20 minutes and every 5 minutes after that time.
  • If these grilled potatoes were being made in the oven, preheat oven to 400 degrees and cook potatoes for about 20 - 30 minutes once. When potatoes are cooked, add the cheese and let cheese melt another minute or two.
