- 1.5 lbs Baby potatoes chopped into bite size pieces
- 1/2 Tbsp. Olive oil
- 1 Tbsp. Dried rosemary
- 3 Sprigs fresh thyme
- 7 Whole garlic cloves (no need to peel)
- Pinch Sea salt and pepper

Preheat the grill to medium, or oven to 400°F. Chop the potatoes into bite sized pieces then place in a bowl and mix with oil, seasoning, whole garlic cloves and dried rosemary.
Transfer the potatoes to a piece of foil, around 28" (70cm) in length. Bunch the potatoes in the middle of the foil. Place 3 sprigs of thyme and 1 Tbsp. cubed butter on top of the potatoes.
Bring the edges of the foil together and wrap, ensuring a tight seal all around. If the width of the foil isn’t long enough to wrap properly, then double wrap with second piece of foil in the opposite direction.
Place the foil directly onto the grill or, if roasting, place on a tray before putting in the oven.
Grill or roast for 40 minutes, then remove from the grill or oven and open up the foil. Remove the thyme and add in the rest of the butter and season again. Then return to the grill or oven with the foil open and cook for a further 15 minutes or until golden brown.
Top with parsley and enjoy!
