We like grilling because it's a no-fuss way to make a meal. This pleasing campfire potatoes recipe is one we use often! The onion, cheddar cheese and Worcestershire sauce combine to make a super side dish for any grilled meat. Plus, cooking in the foil makes cleanup a breeze. —JoAnn Dettbarn, Brainerd, Minnesota
Place the potatoes and onion on a large piece of heavy-duty foil (about 20 in. x 20 in.); dot with butter. Combine the cheese, parsley, Worcestershire sauce, salt and pepper; sprinkle over potatoes.
Fold foil up around potatoes and add broth. Seal the edges of foil well. Grill, covered, over medium heat for 35-40 minutes or until potatoes are tender.
Campfire Potatoes Tips
What kind of potatoes should you use for campfire potatoes?
Really, any type of potato will work for campfire potatoes. Starchy russet potatoes will become tender and fluffy, but might lose their shape a bit. Waxy red potatoes will hold their shape a little better. Yukon Gold potatoes would be a great happy medium between the two. No matter what kind of potato you use, be sure to cut them into even slices that are about 1/4-inch thick, so all of the slices will be done at the same time.
Can you make campfire potatoes in the oven?
Like most campfire recipes, this potato dish can be made in the oven. Put the foil packet on a baking sheet and bake at 350° for 35 to 40 minutes or until the potatoes are tender.
