  1. Preheat an oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Spray four sheets of aluminum foil with cooking spray.
  2. Divide potatoes evenly among the sheets of aluminum foil; season with salt, pepper, garlic powder, and oregano. Place 2 tablespoons of the butter flavored spread over each mound of potatoes. Create packets by folding and sealing the aluminum foil. Place the foil packets on a baking sheet.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until potatoes are tender and easily pierced with a fork, 55 minutes to 1 hour. Drain melted butter-flavored spread before serving.

This recipe is so easy and good. My family loves it. I also add cheese, diced onion and even have put a small piece of bacon on the top. I also spray the foil with pam....

I have made this for years - on the grill! It's such an easy way to make potatoes while the meat is grilling. Add sliced onions! Cook the packet until the potatoes are fork-tender, flipping them over once in awhile (if the foil packet is super-tight) to be sure they are getting evenly done. I wouldn't use oregano, but only because I don't care for oregano. Garlic/salt/pepper/butter is plenty.

Great recipe that's low in fat! I did mine on the grill. I sprayed the bottom of a foil packet with Pam to prevent the potatoes from sticking. I left out the oregano (personal preference) and added some vidalia onion. I used minced garlic vs. garlic powder. There's nothing simpler and these go great with BBQ chicken.

A favorite in my family! I do these a little different, I slice the potatoes into large slices, place a thin slice of onion in between each slice with a thin pat of butter, then I salt & pepper the entire thing. Try a splash of Frank's Red Hot over the top - they're DELICIOUS!! :)

Not only does the recipe sound good the reviews and tweaking make my mouth water. can't wait to make it. Thanks for sharing!

we've been doing this on the grill for years--a couple of minutes in the microwave with the potatoes before you put them in the pouch saves a lot of time on the grill or in the oven.

I have been making these for years...good for camping too. You can just throw them into the coals but dont forget to turn over. Sometimes I add smoke sausage and onions to the mix.

I loved this recipe- got me a good start. Rather than the low fat version, I drizzled EVOO, and a couple tbsp of butter were thrown in the pack. I added fresh basil, oregano, and garlic as well.
