Recipe of the Week: Foil Pack Potatoes


I'm posting my menu & recipe a little later than usual because I wanted to give my posts that I published over the weekend a little more time at the top of the blog. And then I flipped through all my photos and just could not decide on what recipe to post for this week.

Finally I decided to go with these foil pack potatoes. Sorry that the photo's not that great, but it is a delicious side item that you can bake in the oven or on the grill. The recipe I used called for taco seasoning, but I used chili powder and a little salt and pepper instead. But you could use any seasonings or toppings you like.

-----------------------------------

Recipe for Foil Pack Potatoes: Ingredients:
Potatoes (1 or 2 per person)
Shredded Cheddar Cheese
Chili Powder
Salt & pepper

Directions: Cut potatoes into thin slices or cubes. Place slices from one potato (or 2 small potatoes) on a piece of foil. Sprinkle with chili powder and cheddar cheese. Bring up foil sides and fold down to seal the packet Bake at 400 degrees for about 30 minutes. Serve beside your favorite dish. (Optional - Top with sour cream and other toppings when serving.)

-----------------------------------
Tips & Suggestions:
-I actually boiled my potatoes on the stove for 10 to 15 minutes to ensure they were soft enough for our liking. But I suppose you could also bake them a little longer, and maybe add a tiny bit of water to each pack to prevent them from being too dry.
-Add other veggies to your pack like peppers, onions, carrots, or mushrooms.
-For a complete meal, add a piece of chicken or other meat to your pack.
-For a cookout, place your packets on the grill for 35 to 40 minutes.
