Potatoes Plus

On our busy farm, meals need to be ready fast. These herb-seasoned potatoes and vegetables wrapped in foil packets cook in only half an hour. They're excellent with steak or chicken. —Jill Jellett, Leduc, Alberta

    I have been making these for year and love doing these on the grill. So easy to prepare the packet. Seasoning is very good.

    These are wonderful with grilled meats! Husband fixed with grilled chicken and everyone loved them. I might add mushrooms next time.

    So much fun on the grill! I used a few layers of foil, and everything was roasted to perfection! Being a salt lover - I might use garlic salt instead of garlic powder, and possibly add some Worcestershire sauce to enhance the flavors even more!

    Excellent! We left the dill out, as my husband doesn't care for it. These are very good and we will make them again.

    Just made this for the 3rd time and wanted to rate it because it is such a nice recipe! It uses things we almost always have on hand, it's flexible for your tastes and when made as written it comes out GREAT every time! Tonight's selection was on the grill a bit long and got a little charred - but that made the peppers taste like Roasted red peppers! Yummy! Thanks for a great recipe. It is a go to for us in the summer.

    This was a great recipe it was easy to make and had great flavor. The only thing that I did change. My husband and I like a lot of spice so I added extra spice to it... it was great.

    The vegetables retain a lot of moisture and a little smokiness when cooked this way.
