Grilled Potato Packets with Truffle Zest are the perfect side dish for you next barbecue. They’re easy to prepare, too – no pre-boiling needed!

  • Yield: 6 servings 1x


  • 2 pounds small (1 inch) new potatoes – red, yellow, and/or purple
  • Kosher salt, to taste
  • Fresh ground pepper, to taste
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh flat leaf (Italian) parsley
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • Truffle zest, to taste


  1. Preheat grill to medium (around 350 degrees).
  2. Cut potatoes in half lengthwise. Place in a large mixing bowl. Season with salt and pepper; drizzle with olive oil and toss to coat.
  3. Tear off 8 12-by-12-inch sheets of foil. Make 4 stacks of foil with 2 sheets each, to form a double layer. Spray top sheets with nonstick cooking spray.
  4. Divide potatoes evenly between the stacks, placing in the middle of the foil. Fold up opposite sides and fold over to seal.foil packet with potatoes inside, ready for grilling
  5. Place packets on grill rack and grill, cover closed, for 25 to 30 minutes or until potatoes are fork tender.
  6. Carefully open packets and transfer potatoes to a large serving bowl. Sprinkle with parsley, Parmesan cheese and truffle zest.
  7. Alternatively, you can season potatoes in the foil packets and serve. (If you plan to serve the potatoes this way, I would make 6 packets instead of 4 – one per person.)
