Grilled Ranch Potatoes

 There are a million different potato salad recipes out there during the BBQ season. I'm not really a fan of the gloppy mayonnaise filled type, and I especially don't enjoy making them. The potatoes fall a part and there just isn't much flavor. This is a super easy side dish to serve next to any grilled or BBQ main dish. 

The potatoes come together really quickly. I par cooked these while I was putting together the ingredients for my Buffalo Turkey Burgers. A few sprinkles of seasonings and they are ready for a delicious dinner. 

Ingredients, per person

1 potato (I used russet)
1 teaspoon garlic salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1 teaspoon ranch seasoning
1 teaspoon butter or margarine

Start out with your potatoes well cleaned and make sure there are no growths on it. Then poke a few holes in the potatoes with a fork.  Cook them in a microwave for about five minutes. They should be slightly tender.

Cut the potatoes in quarters and place on a piece of aluminum foil big enough to make a packet around the pieces.  Wrap the potato tightly in the foil to help keep the steam and flavor in.

 Sprinkle over all the seasonings and try to spread the butter evenly over each piece. Fold up the packets and place them in a grill in a spot with medium heat. This works perfectly with any temperature you are grilling meat on, just put the packets on when you do everything else. It will all be done at the same time.

 A packet of yum!

 This goes perfectly with my Buffalo Turkey Burger recipe. Try these out the next time you grill!
