Tips & Variations

No special items needed.



These potatoes are so easy and come out perfect. I peeled the potatoes but that isn't necessary. The added garlic powder, seasoned salt & chives just add to the great flavour. I'll be making them again for sure. I baked the foil packages at 400 for35 minutes

These potatoes are delicious and so easy to make on the bbq. A perfect recipe for a hot day when you don't want to use the oven.

These potatoes are perfect Bea! They taste like scalloped potatoes without the fattening white sauce. I'll be making them often, whether on the grill or in the oven, they'll be in my weekly rotation. DH and I thank you for posting!

This is such a nice recipe in that you're not using your stovetop or dirtying up a fry pan. Super easy in the oven and the taste is the same as having fried potatoes.
