Easy Greek Patates on the grill.
I had read about these wonderful Greek Patates before we went to Greece. Once there, though, I only found them one time and believe me I asked at every place we ate. They would say, "Yes, we have those" and then here would come a plate of french fries. Anyway, I found a recipe and played with it a bit and these are pretty close. If you like potatoes and oregano and olive oil, you will love these. Give them a try. So Good!
The ingredients! Not too scary:)
Slice the potatoes to about 1/8 inch thick. You can use russets, reds, or your favorite kind of potato.
Layer about half of the potato slices on the foil. Season with salt and pepper, garlic, and oregano. Drizzle with olive oil. Spread the onion over the top and then top with the rest of the potatoes. Season and drizzle one more time.
Wrap up the center and the ends. I usually add another layer or two of foil but that's because I have cheap foil. If you have the heavy duty you should be ok. Put them on the grill turned on high and cook for about 30 minutes. If you make individual servings they will cook faster. Turn with tongs about half way through. The foil should start to puff when they are done.
Slice through the foil and serve! MMMM
These are the yummiest potatoes. I didn't use lemon juice on them but after they are done you can squeeze some fresh lemon juice over the top. These are super easy on the grill but are just as easy in the oven. Try them out. SO SO GOOD!
Easy Greek Patates on the Grill
Potatoes ( about 1 medium per person)
Slice the potatoes to about 1/8 inch thick. Slice the onion.
Spread a double layer of foil out and spray so the potatoes won't stick
Spread a layer of half the potatoes and season with salt, pepper, garlic and oregano. Drizzle with olive oil. Layer on the onions. Top with the rest of the potatoes and season again and drizzle with oil. Fold up the foil and roll in the ends. Use another layer of foil if you think it's necessary.
Put on the grill on high and cook for about 30 minutes. (Individual packs will be less) Turn with tongs about half way through cooking time. Package will start to puff up when they are done. Cut open the foil and devour!
