foil packet potatoes hip2Save

This is my favorite way to make potatoes in the summer because it doesn’t heat up the kitchen. Plus, leftovers make really great breakfast potatoes in the morning. A prep ahead idea for camping would be to place seasoned and coated potatoes & onions in a large Ziploc bag and just bring foil along to grill. You can also use the same method for your favorite roasted vegetables. Yum!

    Can’t wait to try this. It sounds delicious.

  2. taya

    Going camping in June! Making this! thanks!

  3. Rachel

    We throw in carrots and a lump of ground beef too. Pour ketchup or A1 all over it when cooked. Yum!

    • Lauren

      That’s what we do, too! (Really we throw in whatever veggies and meat we have on hand.) Call ’em hobo dinners.

      • Dawn

        Yes, Lauren.. We do too. It’s from our days at Girl Scout camp. We called them Hobo Packs. So yummy!

  4. bridget

    I also put green beans w garlic and olive oil or other seasonings in foil on the grill… easy clean up, doesn’t hear up the house and tastes great!

    • brindha

      How long for the beans to cook? TIA.

      • bridget

        It depends on if they r fresh or frozen and how many…. I probably do 15 min or so… I shake the pack once in awhile to stir it all up…

  5. Jenn

    We’ve made these with bacon and cheese too. So good.

  6. brindha

    Looks so tempting and yummy, will try this weekend. Thanks Lina.

  7. Erin

    We do these year round in the oven. One recipe we do is ranch with bacon bits and the other you can do Italian dressing with grated Parmesan cheese. super easy and yummy.

  8. 78Brownie

    Pinned it! ✔︎ This is super easy. Thanks for sharing

  9. Wanda

    You could probably do this in the oven as well if you don’t have a grill like me, lol.

  10. JA

    We do kielbasa with mushrooms, zucchini, onions and Italian dressing. It’s a family favorite!

  11. Queenmum

    Awesome! Thanks Lina 🙂

  12. Lynne

    We do these all the time on the grill or when camping. I’ve also added bacon bits should we have a few leftover strips of bacon from breakfast. Carrots or green beans are tasty as well.

    • Kristyn

      Leftover bacon? I’ve never heard of that! 😉

      • Sue

        I thought the same thing. 🙂

  13. jess

    Love the leftover breakfast potatoes! ! Great idea

  14. J

    We make these a lot! Only add a cut up jalapeño and like half a block or more of velveeta cheese cut up! !!! So good!

  15. Sheree - Houston Realtor

    Love this. I usually add squash zucchini carrots and mushrooms and a little bacon salt and olive oil. Onions and potatoes on bottom for a carmelized

  16. Susi

    Try using lemon pepper for a little “bite”!! Super Delicious 🙂

  17. maflies1

    Thanks for posting this. Used to make versions of these often in the oven or on the grill, depending on the season. S

  18. CW

    I make this minus the olive oil and lay the foil packets on top of meat in broth inside a crockpot – if you can’t grill. I sometimes add those already peeled carrots with the potatoes. Cook for as long as you cook the meat.

  19. Pat

    We’ve been doing this for years, only we slice the potatoes and put shredded cheese on top. We’ll have to try the chunks next time!

  20. Toni

    We love salt, pepper, garlic and rosemary on ours.

  21. Rachel

    We prepare ours with rosemary and garlic powder. It’s our family favorite.

  22. aV

    We also do this with whatever veggies and seasonings are on hand. If available, we also add a couple of ice cubes to steam from the inside and keep the starches and sugars in the veggies from scorching.

  23. Kristy

    Are you guys peeling the potatoes or just cutting?

    • Christine

      If you are using the golden potatoes or regular white potatoes those skins are thin and you shouldn’t have to peel, to me that is as good as the meat of the potato:)

      • Kristy

        Thank you!!

  24. Mary

    Could you use frozen cubed hash browns? If so how long do you think they would have to cook?
