I needed something to go with the burgers I made July 4Th so I threw these potatoes together to take along. I got the idea from something similar my mother use to make when I was younger. She once followed the recipe off the back of a Lipton onion soup package. It said to add the packet to 1/3 cup olive oil and 4 chopped potatoes, shake and then bake. After my parents realized how much salt was in the packet they just made up there own mixture of seasonings to make potatoes the same way. I remembered the potatoes they cooked tasting great off the grill or baked. I threw together some seasonings and herbs that I remembered my parents using, then I tossed in some more seasonings that I thought would be tasty along with some garlic and onions. We cooked half of these on the grill and then the next day I cooked the other half in the oven so I am putting the directions for both.

5 large red potatoes (sliced)
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp essence
1 tsp fresh parsley (diced)
1 tsp fresh sage (diced)
1 tsp fresh basil (diced)
2 tsp fresh chives (chopped)
1/3 cup sweet onions (diced)
2 cloves garlic (minced)
kosher salt (to taste)
fresh crack pepper (to taste)
1/4 cup olive oil

Place potatoes in a large ziploc or seal able container with seasonings and oil. Shake until mixed well. Pour into the middle of a 1 1/2 foot piece of aluminium foil. Fold aluminium foil tightly around potatoes and then take another 1 1/2 foot piece of foil and wrap it around the foiled potatoes.

Preheat grill to medium high.

Put potatoes on lowest rack and cook 35-40 minutes flipping every 10 minutes until done.

(If making in oven pour potatoes into 12 x 8 baking dish, cover with aluminum foil and bake at 400 for 35-40 minutes minutes. )
