Amazing campfire potatoes that are so easy to put together. You'll be making them all summer long!
I haven't been actual camping in forever; however, I am in love with firing up my grill during the summer. We are constantly using our grill and boy, does it taste amazing.
Using the stove-top just isn't the same, plus you do not have to worry about the oven or stove-top heating up your house.
You might also know these campfire potatoes as foil packets or potato packets - they are all the same and taste just as delicious! I kind of prefer the name to be campfire potatoes - really minds me of summer. Doesn't it?
I hope everyone enjoyed the holiday weekend, if you are in the states! If you aren't, well, I hope you still enjoyed the weekend as well.
If you would like to, share sometime about your weekend in the comments. I love hearing about you all!
Now these campfire potatoes are a little spicy. If you are not a spicy-lover then you can just omit the cayenne and crushed red pepper flakes. If you like a little spiciness, then I recommend you just using the cayenne pepper.
The flavors will still be great!
You will want to start off with 1 and ½ pounds of potatoes and you will need to slice them. You can slice them however you would like.
Add the butter, minced garlic, the worcheshire sauce, and the spices in aluminum foil. You will want to make sure you have enough foil to completely cover the potatoes and protect the potatoes. If you need to add an extra layer on top, plus do so - that's what I did.
- 1 and ½ pounds potatoes sliced
- 2 medium garlic cloves minced
- 4 tablespoons butter
- 2 tablespoons worcestershire sauce
- ⅛ teaspoon cayenne pepper
- 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
Place the sliced potatoes on top of a large piece of aluminum foil. You will want to have enough foil to wrap the potatoes tightly.
Add the minced garlic cloves, butter, worcestershire sauce, cayenne pepper, and crushed red pepper flakes on top of the potatoes. Fold and seal the potatoes tightly.
Place the potato packet on top of the grill and grill for 30-35 minutes. You can also use the oven on 400 degrees for about 20-25 minutes or until the potatoes or tender with a pan under neat the packet.
