"What a wonderful surprise, I had the ingredients on hand and needed a quick meal to take out to the folks. This was gobbled up by the kids and adults. I did not use quite as much BBQ sauce just for my tastes. I used fresh potatoes, and they cooked so nicely. I was so pleased . I will be making this for our camping trips."

"Simple, easy, delicious! I'm wary of using too much processed meat in my home, but this was worth a splurge! We made ours on the grill and subbed some idaho potatoes that had been microwaved for two minutes."

"This was tasty and simple. I substituted canned potatoes since I couldn't find refrigerated ones. One person doesn't like onions so the individual packs made it easy to omit them."

"These little "packs" are delicious and so much fun to make! My family enjoyed customizing their packs by adding ingredients of their choice, including bell pepper strips. We will definitely make this recipe again!"

"This was so much fun! I used (fully cooked) chicken sausage instead of hot dogs. Plus I added peppers and a few other vegetables to the potatoes. I was in a hurry so just quickly handed the foil packet to my husband and told him to put it on the grill for 15 minutes. He didn't tend to it much either because he was doing a few other things. Still turned out great."

"Instead of using the refrigerated red potatoes, I used the regular ones and microwaved them for a couple of minutes. This worked out well especially if the refrigerated red potatoes are unavailable."

"I hadn't planned on liking this, but it was really tasty and we'll definitely do it again. I didn't have refrigerated potatoes so I parboiled a couple quartered russets, and substituted smoked sausage for the hot dogs. Very quick and easy meal - thanks for sharing the recipe!"

"My young sons loved this. I used Polska Kielbasa instead of plain ol' hot dogs for a zestier flavor. I do recommend spraying the foil with oil first as our food stuck to the bottom of our packs. I'll definitely make this again. A very easy meal for home or away."
