Tinfoil Potatoes

I'm not one for side dishes. Usually when I make a meal it's all inclusive to avoid them, but this one I love. It's something my parents cooked on the BBQ when I was younger.

It's quick and easy to make, just do a little chopping. It also can easily be turned into a whole meal with some meat of your choice. These also make an easy dinner while out camping, you prepare them at home and then once you have a fire going just throw these into the coals until they are nicely cooked.

  • 3 potatoes
  • 1 carrot
  • half an onion
  • ¼ cup of margarine
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • left over gravy if you have it
  • chicken, roast, or hamburger if desired
  • Chop up the potatoes, carrot, and onion.
  • (If you are wanting some meat, this is the point you can add it.)
  • Place ingredients on foil.
  • Add margarine and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  • Double wrap the food in tinfoil. This prevents the juices and oils from leaking out and keeps the moisture in as well.
  • Cook in oven at 425F for about an hour, less time on the BBQ or in the coals of a fire.
