Potato Packets for Grilling

It is grilling season!
I love a grilled supper.
My husband of course takes grilling very seriously, and I am trying to become a 'master' griller like he is ;)
A goal I have set for this spring/summer season is try to grill as much as I can!
But before that gets too involved, I made my favorite potato dish for the grill to take to my sister's house for an Easter dinner grill-out.
They are simple. Doesn't take long to prepare, or grill. And best of all they taste SO delish!

Potato Packets for Grilling
Prep: 15 minutes Grill: 15 minutes Serves: 6

1 red bell pepper
1 green bell pepper
1 medium-sized onion
8 medium-sized potatoes
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp salt
1 tbsp steak seasoning
3-4 tbsp olive oil (depends on how large your potatoes are to coat well)
2 tbsp butter or margarine
aluminum foil

Cut peppers, and remove seeds.
Slice into strips
Peel onion and slice into thin strips also.
Peel potatoes, cut down the center length-wise, then cut into smaller pieces down the short side to crate smaller potato pieces. They cook faster the smaller they are.
Place peppers, onion, and potatoes into a large mixing bowl.
Add paprika, salt, and your favorite steak seasoning.
Combine well using a wooden spoon or your hands.
Add olive oil.
Add enough to coat everything well. It may take more or less depending on how large your vegetables are.

Tear off aluminum foil to create 3 packets from.
I bend up each of the four sides to create some "walls" to stand while I pour in the veggies.
Place a tablespoon of the margarine or butter into each foil.
Top with potato mixture.
Fold in the sides and seal the seams to create the packets.
Toss on the grill over a hot area for about 15 minutes, or until the potatoes are fork-tender.
You can also place into the fridge for a few hours if needed at this point. Great to make-ahead and let marinate until needed!
Serve as-is, or with some ketchup, ranch or bbq sauce. Whatever you prefer!
Delicious and happy grilling!
