Just a Potato

Just a potato, no this is not just a potato; this is a little bit of baked heaven in your mouth.  Simple, easy, and freakin’ delicious. 
The weather is chilly and I can smell fall in the air.  I love fall!! Fall is not thought of as “grilling weather” but, it is a great time to grill! There is nothing like the flavor of grilled food.  We actually made these potatoes early in the summer from our first CSA potatoes, but seeing these pictures makes me think we’ll be firing up the grill tonight!  You could also do these potatoes in the oven and they would still be delicious! The grill just adds an extra lil sumin’ sumin’. 
This recipe can’t get easier potatoes, olive oil, and spices.

For the spices I used salt, pepper, and Simply Organic Garlic ‘n Herb. 
I don’t often use premade spice mixes but I love this one! It adds great flavor to all the dishes I’ve used it in {and I’m not being paid or perked to say that.}  It has a mix of sesame seeds, garlic, black pepper, lemon peel, onion, and parsley.  The sesame seeds and lemon peel make a great crust on the potatoes.
 Everything I have researched indicates this mix is gluten free! It is not certified gluten free, but, Frontier {who make Simply Organic} states HERE that they have eliminated all products and ingredients containing gluten and ensure any new products do not contain gluten.
The potatoes get wrapped all up in foil and grilled on indirect heat for about 50 minutes.                   De-freakin-licious!!

Heaven Grilled Baked Potatoes
Potatoes {Yukon Gold}  
Olive Oil – enough to lightly cover each potato
Salt- to cover lightly
Pepper – to cover lightly
½ tsp Simply Organic Garlic ‘n Herb - per potato
Aluminum Foil
1.)    Wash and scrub potatoes. Place each potato on a piece of aluminum foil large enough to wrap and cover the whole potato. 
2.)    Drizzle olive oil on and rub to cover the entire potato. 
3.)    Sprinkle salt, pepper, and herbs on the potato and rub to cover the entire potato. 
4.)    Wrap the potato up in foil. 
5.)    Place the potatoes on indirect heat on the grill.  {TIP: We used the top rack of our grill and turned the flame on the opposite side of the grill.}
6.)    Grill for about 50 minutes, flipping the foiled potatoes half way through. 
7.)    Spilt the potatoes and top with a dab of Earth Balance {or butter.}  

 Enjoy this deliciously simple side!
What's your favorite grilled veggie recipe?  Do you grill into the cold winter months or just in the summer?  Or are you lucky enough to have warm weather to grill all year long?
