Roasted Potatoes on the Barbecue or Campfire

Make these delicious and flavourful roasted potatoes on the barbecue or over a low campfire! Easy and so good.

Don’t you just love barbecue season? I’ve got summer food on my mind, so that means BBQ and campfire food! But barbecues aren’t just for cooking steaks, they are such a great way to cook side dishes too. Cooking your entire meal on the barbecue means less kitchen clean up (yahoo!), and not only that, there’s just something about cooking outside that makes food taste SO good!

One of the best side dishes on the BBQ are roasted potatoes. These potatoes are so simple to make and taste so good! Yum. Serious yum.

BBQ/Campfire Roasted Potatoes

Great for camping too!

This recipe also works great for camping – just cook the potatoes in a tin container right on the grill over your campfire! Hearty and delicious.

Roasted Potatoes Cooking Tips:

  • POTATOES: You can use any kind of potatoes. We especially enjoy red baby potatoes.
  • SEASONING: Seasoning salt is especially flavourful on these potatoes. We use Lawry’s or Hy’s.
  • ADDITIONS: You can add all sorts of veggies to this recipe. Sometimes we like to add mushrooms, chopped garlic, chunks of bell peppers, or sweet potato. The possibilities are endless! Keep in mind that the more veggies you add, the more olive oil and seasoning you will likely need.
