Campfire Potatoes

I just adore these potatoes.  They are one of my favourite ways to have potatoes in the summer.  They're so easy to throw together and there is very little mess.   You simply wrap and cool in foil, throwing them on the BBQ with everything else.

You can also . . .  of course, do them in the oven.  Again, wrapping in foil and throwing the foil away when done.  Easy peasy.


Thinly sliced potatoes and onions . . .  dotted with butter . . .

And a somewhat reminiscent of rarebit, "Cheesy" topping sprinkled over top . . .  a bit of stock, a fold and seal, and into the BBQ/Oven they go . . .


To be taken out and enjoyed about  half an hour later . . .  when they're fork tender, and richly melded into something so unctuously delicious that you would be quite, quite satisfied with a plate of these and nothing else.

Been there.  Done that.   Thoroughly enjoyed.  'Nuff said.  These would also be great for Bonfire Night!  (Just saying!)
