BBQ Hot Dog & Potato Packs

    Love this recipe for camping, or just a fun grill out. Have made with scouts too, easy prep and hearty meal.

    I see that some people baked this. Can anyone recommend how they did it?

    These were pretty good, but I felt the amount of bbq sauce was a little overpowering. I had a bunch of fresh baby potatoes, which I boiled beforehand. After draining them, I rinsed them with cold water. Then I constructed the packets. I think this recipe could have gotten away with maybe just 1/2 the amount of bbq sauce. Some of our potatoes did stick, so next time I'll spray the foil like TGI mentioned below. I'm really looking forward to doing a sort of spin-off of this: precooked italian sausage, marinara in place of the bbq, mozzarella in place of the cheddar (pizza packets!).

    My husband and I enjoyed these packets. I used regular red potatoes and microwaved them for two minutes, but would microwave them for about five minutes first since the potatoes were underdone. Had no problems with sticking because I sprayed the foil with cooking spray. Good dish for summer grilling.

    This is a fast and easy all-in-one dinner during the hot temperatures. I parboiled raw potatoes for 10 minutes, and sautéed the onions for 10 minutes, but I did the rest as the recipe, and my husband said that it was a keeper.

    Since I like all kinds of veggies I would add caramelized onions and peppers, a wedge of cabbage, potatoes and smoked sausage. As written, my grandkids would like it, sans onions. Tip, I caramelize a whole bag of onions, put in smaller containers and freeze. Same for bell peppers, take out as needed, a time saver.
