BBQ Hot Dog & Potato Packs

For these nifty foil packs, small hands make quick work of topping potato wedges with a hot dog, onions and cheese. — Kelly Westphal, Wind Lake, Wisconsin

    Loren, I've made this several times over the years for my family, both in a campfire when we were camping with our six kids & in the oven during the colder months. The recipe turns out delicious both ways! In the oven, preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place foil packets in oven & bake for 20 minutes. We like our vegetables crisp tender, so depending on the thickness of your potato slices, you may have to adjust the baking time. We also like thick-sliced carrots with ours! Yum! I hope this helps!

    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.
