Campfire Foil Potatoes Recipe

Description:  This recipe is adapted from Boy Scout foil dinners. The fun is in each person adding their own "fixins". You can add a few things, or a little of everything. Our family insists on it at cookouts, a few times each summer. Cook this recipe directly on hot coals, or on the grill.

Serves: 4


Ingredients:

  • 6 potatoes, washed and sliced

  • 1 onion, sliced thin

  • 4-5 cloves garlic, minced or chopped

  • fresh chives, chopped

  • fresh parsley, chopped.

  • 3 strips bacon, fried, and chopped (optional)

  • beef bullion (not cubes)

  • cheddar cheese


Preparation Directions:

  1. For each person, cut off a 16-18 inch long piece of Aluminum foil. Fold it in half, and set aside.

  2. Wash and slice potatoes, and place them in a bowl..

  3. Put onions, garlic, chives, parsley, bacon, and cheese in separate serving bowls.

  4. Each person takes a sheet of folded over aluminum foil.

  5. Start by putting potatoes on the foil.

  6. Add whatever ingredients you want.

  7. Sprinkle some beef bullion on potatoes.

  8. Add a pat of butter.

  9. Fold half of the foil over the potatoes. Fold in each each open side twice , crimping to seal. It is important that the foil is completely sealed, so the butter does not leak out and flare up the fire.Tip: If you make it too big, take another sheet of aluminum foil and wrap it completely around.

  10. Mark your name or initials on the foil. Be careful not to puncture the foil.

  11. Cook directly on hot burning cols or on a grill, turning once or twice.

  12. Cook time is about 20 minutes.

Tip: Be careful opening the foil, as steam will come out.
