Foil-Grilled Balsamic Glazed Potatoes

What You'll Need:
2 golden potatoes, cubed (1" to 1.5" cubes; you can leave the skin on)
1 large yam, peeled and cubed (1" to 1.5")
1/4 red bell pepper, diced
5-6 white mushrooms, sliced
2 cloves fresh garlic, minced (or 1/2 tsp garlic powder)
1/4 white onion, diced
1/3 c. balsamic vinegar
1 Tbs dried parsley flakes
2 tsp olive oil
1 tsp hickory flavored liquid smoke
1/4 tsp salt
1/8 tsp chipotle chili powder (optional)

What To Do:
Preheat grill (medium-high, if using gas)
Place all ingredients in a large bowl. Mix well so that spices, vinegar and oil evenly coat all vegetables and mushrooms.  Place potato mixture on a large piece of heavy duty foil. Fold foil to create a packet; fold edges upwards and seal (note: best results when the packet is made as pictured; you can make two if needed).  Place on grill with the seam side up so the dressing doesn't leak out of the foil pack.  Grill for 15 minutes, flip the foil packet and grill for an additional 15 minutes (take care not to accidentally poke a hole in the foil packet when flipping).


  1. I always learn something new when I visit here. What is hickory flavored liquid smoke?

  2. :) it's smoke flavoring-- made out of vinegar and molasses. I use a gas grill so I don't get that smoked flavor when cooking. You can use wood chips, but the liquid smoke is just more convenient for me :)

  3. Interesting! Never knew that existed.
