These Basil Pesto Grilled Potatoes in Foil are easy, healthy and full of flavor. You can make this 5-ingredient side dish on the grill, in the oven, or over an open fire.
Preheat an outdoor grill to medium-high.
Cut four 12 x 12 pieces of foil and set aside.
In a mixing bowl, combine prepared potatoes, basil pesto, garlic, salt and pepper; mix well.
Evenly divide the potatoes between foil sheets. Fold all sides of the foil over the potatoes and seal closed.
Transfer your foils to the grill and cook for 20 to 25 minutes, or until potatoes are tender, turning over once. To check for doneness, pierce the foil packets with a fork to check if your potatoes need longer to cook.
Remove the foil packets from the grill and open them up, carefully, away from your face.
Sprinkle with parsley or basil, if desired, and serve.
Preheat oven to 425°F.
Assemble your potato packets and place them on a large baking sheet.
