Jacked Up Grilled Potatoes and Onions

Jacked Up Grilled Potatoes and Onions

What goes better with steak? Why potatoes of course.  These are not your average grilled potato and onions. I have been looking for something different to try on the grilled to change up my grilled potatoes.  Well I found it.  I was reading this recipe online where you take a Vidalia onion and add a beef bouillon to it and grill it.  Which I am sure is great but why not add potatoes to that and make it even better.  These potatoes will melt in your mouth. They have such great flavor. I know my pictures do not even do this dish justice but they are definitely a must try.


First I took two sheets of aluminum foil and lay them over each other to form a T. Then I butter the top sheet by rubbing a stick of butter of it. This will help the potatoes from sticking to the foil.  I slice up the potatoes and onions. Place them in the center of the T.

Then I add pads of butter to the potatoes and onions. I then took two beef bouillon cubes and crushed them into small pieces and sprinkled them over the potato and onions. (This is what makes these potatoes so jacked up.)


I also sprinkled some all season salt and sea salt over the potatoes.  Then with my hands I toss the potato and onions until everything is mixed well.


Fold up on side and then the other. Then I take another piece of aluminum foil and rolled the package until completely covered again.


Place this on the grill for about 30 minutes on medium heat. Each grill is different. You will hear the butter sizzling when it is almost done.  You can check but make sure if you open it up to check it you sealed it well before putting it back on the grill.  Trust me on this.  Fire will happen.

Here is the ingredient list I used for two people.

2 russet potatoes

1/2 vidalia onion

1/2 stick of butter or less. ( I used less but forgot to measure)

2 cubes of beef bouillon

1 teaspoon or more of all season salt

dash of sea salt

I hope you enjoy it. I will now be making this more over this summer.  It is very addicting. The flavor of the beef bouillon just Jack’s up the traditional grilled potatoes and onions. Try it and see for yourself.
