Becky's Grilled Potatoes

Katie here!  My escapades in grilling this summer continues with this fun take on potatoes.  My husband recently commented that we should maximize grilling out to keep our kitchen cool during the DC heat waves.  So I went in search of some easy way to cook potatoes on the grill instead of using our oven.  Luckily I remembered a great way my sister Becky would make potatoes.  This recipe can be made with or without dairy and has room for improvising.

Baking potatoes
Earth balance, butter or olive oil
Onion, thinly sliced
Salt and pepper to taste

Cut slices in the baked potatoes.  The slices should go almost all the way down in the potato, but not all the way through. Microwave the potatoes for 5 minutes. Place each potato on a piece of foil, large enough to wrap the potatoes in.  Place small slices of the earth balance or butter in each of the slits, or if using olive oil drizzle alittle bit in each slice. Season with salt and pepper. Stick a slice of the onion in each slit.  Place the remaining onions on top of each potato.  Wrap tightly in the foil.  Place on grill over medium high heat.  Cook for at least 30 minutes.
