"I make these great hands on potatoes beforehand, when everything is going to be cooked on the grill. They're also great for a campfire on a small grill. These potatoes will keep everyone coming back for more! Have recipe in hand!"

Fantastic flavor and wonderful addition to campfire meals. I only wish we'd brought more ingredients so we could make them again. We used 2.5 really large potatoes.

My bf and I thought these were great! I peeled and thinly sliced the potatoes and cut the slices in half. I highly recommend the medium heat as they will burn on the bottom if the coals are too ...

If you find that your potatoes (or anything else cooked in tinfoil) try layering tinfoil, wet news paper and tinfoil again. It really helps to keep food from burning!
