Potato Foil Packets


4 large potatoes
1 onion
olive oil
sea salt
herbs (thyme, dill, rosemary, etc.)


Lay out large piece of foil and spray with cooking spray.

Wash the potato and cut into thin slices (1/8" to 1/4" thick). Spread the potato slices on the foil leaving enough room around the sides to be able to fold up and over the potatoes.

Slice the onion and spread on top of the potatoes.

Sprinkle with olive oil, sea salt and herbs.

Close up the tin foil into tight, leak proof packages. You may need to use another layer of tin foil just to be sure.

Place the tin foil packages at the edge of the fire. Do not place them directly in the flame. The goal is not to burn them to a crisp, but to roast them slowly with the heat from the fire. Rotate the package a few times during the cooking process. After about 25 minutes, remove the tin foil packages from the fire. Open and check that the potatoes are cooked. The thinner they are the quicker they will cook so keep checking to make sure they do not burn on the bottom.

Once the potatoes are cooked to desired softness remove the packet from the grill and serve warm!
