Easy Campfire Potatoes

I am SO READY for some cooler weather! When it starts to get cooler, that means football, the holidays and spending more time outside is in our future. This Easy Campfire Potatoes recipe is great to make at home on the grill, in the oven OR…..you can place it on the grate when you have a fire going and have a delicious side to any dish. We made these for the first time when we went camping last year. My dad started throwing them together and I wasn’t real sure how they would turn out. But they were so yummy. In fact that camping trip started my fascination with foil packet meals! I’ll be sure to share some of those soon too.

  • 1 1/2 lb new red potatoes
  • 1 large onion
  • 1 tablespoon of minced garlic
  • 4 tablespoon of butter
  • 1-2 tablespoon of Worcestershire sauce

  • Slice potatoes and onion into 1/8 - 1/4" slices. You can also cube your potatoes, either way is fine.
  • Place potatoes and onion on a piece of aluminum foil large enough to fold over and to be able to roll up edges. The heavy duty foil is best for this recipe.
  • Top potatoes with garlic, butter, Worcestershire and cayenne pepper.
  • Fold foil over to form a seam on top and roll edges to close.
  • Set grill to medium heat and cook for 30 minutes or in 350 degrees Fahrenheit oven (in a pan to avoid messes) for 35-40 minutes.
  • Check potatoes to make sure they are fork tender.
  • Cool slightly and serve.
