Grilled Potato Casserole

This is a great recipe for a potato casserole that is cooked on the grill!  It's so cool; you make a spiced roux, add raw potatos and onions, and put it all in a foil packet.  It all cooks to perfection in about 45 minutes.  We were roasted a whole, butterflied chicken too, so we just put them on there side by side and they were done in about the same time.  I used a red bell pepper instead of green, because I bought the wrong one.  This recipe comes from a good cooking friend and was published on Allrecipes!  :)

Next time I make this, I think I'll make two separate packets instead of one big one, as I think that would be easier to turn on the grill. 

Grilled Potato Casserole

3 tablespoons butter
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon seasoned pepper
1/4 teaspoon celery seed
1 1/2 cups milk
4 medium potatoes, peeled and cubed
1 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup chopped green bell pepper
1/4 teaspoon paprika

1.Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat.

2.Melt the butter in a saucepan over medium-low heat. Whisk in the flour, salt, seasoned pepper, and celery seed; cook and stir for 1 minute. Gradually whisk the milk into the flour mixture, and bring to a simmer over medium heat. Cook and stir until the mixture is thick and bubbly, 5 to 10 minutes.

3.Stir in the potatoes, onion, and green bell pepper. Pour the potato mixture onto a large sheet of heavy duty foil. Sprinkle with paprika. Fold the foil loosely around the potato mixture and seal tightly. Grill on covered grill, turning the packets every 15 minutes, until the potatoes are tender, about 45 to 50 minutes.
