  1. Toss together the potato, onion, garlic, butter, pepper, oregano, salt, and Parmesan cheese in a large bowl, or a resealable bag. Remove from bag, and wrap in several layers of aluminum foil, sealing the edges well.
  2. Cook on a wire rack over the hot coals of a fire, flipping over midway through cooking, until the potatoes are tender; about 30 to 40 minutes. Alternatively, the potato packet may be baked on a cookie sheet in a 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) oven.

Great recipe! If desired, you can reduce the amount of butter used if you're watching your diet. I prefer to use a little more garlic, but only because I'm a garlic lover :) I usually make this on the grill, too, and I usually slice the potatoes instead of chopping them. You can use any kind of potato, not only red potatoes.

...Could not make ANOTHER baked potato in the micro or mashed potato on the stove (can't wait for it to cool down so I can use my oven again!) so decided to try these. They were time I will add more seasoning and fresh garlic. Also turned out a little dry so will add a splash of evoo as well...

These were wonderful! I did them up on the bbq and put about 2 Tbsp. of butter into the package with the potates. I'll make them all summer long next year, my whole family loved them!

This was so delicious! My husband and I aren't big potato eaters but this was so good that I've made it multiple times already! I had to keep the potato sack in the oven a little bit longer than the suggested time but that could be my old oven and not so much the recipe.

These are good. I added a few extra seasonings, garlic salt, onion salt.. I cooked them in the oven in foil and had to add about 25 minutes to the cooking time.

Perfect campfire cuisine.

These were really bad. My husband wouldn't even eat them and he eats everything!

I used EVOO instead of the butter, and no salt. Used some sliced green onions.
