39D83E8D-DE75-457B-AB49-4D62D5208302

A delicious potato recipe that is cooked in the oven and without a pan to clean up. If you follow my blog, a couple of days ago I posted how to make these potato packets on the grill. Now I will show you how to make them in the oven. Each packet can be made to each persons preference such as adding onion, green pepper, bacon etc.

foil around the potatoes.

On one side, roll both sheets of foil

together and upwards, rolling to the potatoes.

Do the same to the other side.

Now roll the rest of the

packet upwards toward the top

completely sealing the packet.

 

39D83E8D-DE75-457B-AB49-4D62D5208302

Place the packet onto a pan and into a

preheated 350 degree oven for about

45 minutes or until potatoes are tender.

Remove the pan from the oven and let the

potatoes sit for 5 minutes. Cut a slit in the

center to let any steam escape then tear away

the foil placing the potatoes on a serving

plate or serve right out of the foil packet.

  1. Simple, but surely yammie. I will try this one day, especially now that the days are getting shorter so (too) fast and the temperature have fallen quite a bit. Always finding ideas here 😀. Thank you!

  2. Very wise and good idea 🙂
    thank you, dear Diane –
    Last, I forgot some potatoes – cut into small bits in the covered casserole, above the electric fire.
    I forgot water, butter, olive oil !! What happened ? I was present, happily, the others outside, and suddenly a nice smell of roasted potatoes 🙂 : potatoes very quickly cooked by themselves. Evidently I added parsley, thyme, fresh butter – but now, I do the same, while surveying !
    Bises and amitiés – for september’s pleasures 🙂
