"Instead of using butter, we usually spray the aluminum foil with nonstick spray. This cuts out some of the fat and none of the flavor!"

"Our family frequently eats potato pockets alongside grilled chicken, burgers, or steaks. It's a creative way to have potatoes and it's nice not to have to heat up the stove or oven to make them."
