Reviews for Campfire Potatoes
"These were amazing. Slicing potatoes very thin helps them get done in the time noted. I think I'd cut down on the butter a bit next time and maybe add a little cooked and crumbled bacon. I put the foil packet on the grill but off to the side of the flame and rotated occasionally. Will be making this many times this summer!"
"These potatoes were easy to make and were very tender and tasty. A great compliment to any grilled meat and no clean up:)"
"To me these are epic fail. Tried these last year and either I had to many in the package or the fire was not hot enough but one would think that after 30min on the grill they would be done. Not so they were still raw even after 45 minutes and I had to finish them off in the oven. Won't be having these again"
"I made these last night but I added frozen peas and cherry tomatoes. They were wonderful!."
"These were okay but I will probably just stick to my normal recipe next time. I have never used broth or any type of liquid in foil pack grilled potatoes before... All it seemed to do was turn the cheese into a watery mess."
"Delicious! This will have a repeat performance at our dinner table."
"My boys and hubby really enjoyed this and my hubby has never enjoyed the traditional "scalloped potatoes" type of preparation! Like another reviewer, I made individual foil packets (4) to bake in the oven set on a cookie sheet--around 375 degrees for about an hour. I sliced the potatoes no larger than 1/8 inch and they came out tender but not mushy. Good flavor mixture! I will be making these again and will also try the grill directions sometime as well."
"Great recipe! I baked mine at 350 degrees for one hour and it turned out wonderful."
"to make things easier I made individual packets, one potato per person, and divided the seasoning. I also par cooked the potatoes in the microwave so they would cook along with our steak..YUM!"
"Baked in 400 degree oven for 70 minutes. Potatoeswere barely done and liquid was just pooled in bottom of pan. Maybe I did something wrong but just did not care force flavour. I did follow the recipe except I used a 9x9 foil pan, covered. Was the pan size my problem? Nope, just didn't like the flavour. Sorry."
"Really good. I used olive oil instead of butter and added some minced garlic. Also used dry parsley not fresh. Not sure what the chicken broth was for since its not in the directions and I didn't use it."
"I have made this sereral times in the oven. It is easy to put together and very tasty. I like that there is cheese but not an over powering amount and with all the other flavors going on it is really about tasty potatoes. These potatoes compliment a variety of meat dishes. I served this over Christmas week with Italian roast beef sandwiches then in the summer next to hot dogs and hamburgers. I followed the recipe as is but since I made my in the oven it took just about an hour in the oven at 350 degrees. I placed the potatoes in my large glass pie plate and when it came out of the oven I set it on a hot pad and served from there --- easy clean-up too!"
"Amazing! I baked these instead of doing them on the grill just because it seemed easier. Next time I'll add minced garlic. I used dried parsley, not fresh, because that's what I had."
"Made these several times. Very easy and taste so good."
"I will try again w/less liquid. Potatoes were a little too soft but flavor was good."
"patty stone. a recipe is a guide. you look at it and say "how can i make this my own?" do this with everything you cook and people will think you're amazing (there might be th occasional disaster but that happens). just play with your food"
"This is scallopped potatoes at their best. Not like gran's but ecellent."
"I do potatoes similar to this (minus onion) on the bbq quite often. I also do them in the oven if the weather is poor, but they do turn out the crispiest on the bbq.I grate my potatoes on the largest hole of my box grater, then toss them in a half olive oil, half melted butter, & chopped garlic mixture before addding them to the foil. Before sealing the foil, I add a sprinkle of kosher salt & freshly ground black pepper for seasoning, a few more sprinkles of olive oil, & occassionally I'll add a bit of chopped fresh mint, or parsley.They're very good!"
"This recipe sounds delicious.. I cooked the "campfire potatoes" on an actual campfire. I dont know what went wrong but they tasted so bad I couldnt even eat them."
"These are the best! Been making since I discovered the recipe years ago in Taste of home, everyone always asks for these."
"I make these all the time. Always a big hit."
"I was disappointed...not much flavor. If I made it again I would double or even triple the cheese mixture."
"I didn't have enough space on the grill so I put it all in a 9x9 square baking dish. I baked it covered at 350 for 45 minutes, then removed the foil for a 10 minutes. Excellent!"
"Seeing as that my husband and daughter are meat and potatoes people they LOVED this. I do not care for potatoes in the least but I actually went back for seconds!"
"I have been making these for years, since I first saw the recipe in TOH. Our entire family loves them! I don't grill mine; I cover them with foil and bake for 40 minutes on 425 degrees, then take the foil off and cook another 5 or 10 minutes."
"We love this recipe, I do the same in the oven. The onions and minced jalapenos makes it really pop"
"What are the times and temperature to make in the oven? Sounds so good! Also what kind of potatoes do you use?"
"I have been makikng this recipe for probably 15-16 yrs, since I first found it in TOH. It is wonderful cooked over a campfire and my pickiest eaters always want more! Thanks for sharing this with us JoAnn!"
"On the grill or in the oven, these are awesome as is and I wouldn't change a thing."
"Great side-dish just as written! :)"
"I made this recipe for my family. Everyone, even our picky eater, loved it! I'm surely going to make this again!"
"This was a wonderful recipe! Delicious!"
"The directions say to fold foil up around potatoes and add broth. I'm sure the broth adds flavor and moisture to help the potatoes cook."
"What is the chicken broth for? It is listegd in teh ingredients but not in the directions?"
"I make this also but add bacon"
"Haven't tried yet, but sure sounds good!"
