Today we’re making super easy and delicious roasted potatoes. So easy, in fact, that you only need some foil and a knife to cook with. (Which makes them a super great side dish while camping or grilling.)
One of the very best things about this process is anything goes. As long as you have some salt and some butter, you can add just about anything else in here that you want.
Start off by washing and slicing potatoes (any kind) about 1/4 inch thick.
Pull off a big piece of foil and drizzle a little olive oil and a few pats of butter on it. Add layers of the sliced potatoes, seasoning each layer a little bit as you go. I used garlic salt, fresh cracked pepper, Parmesan cheese, rosemary and an Italian seasoning blend, but again, use whatever you want. I have done this and added in onion slices and smashed cloves of garlic too.
Fold up the foil into a nice packet, rolling the seams tightly, but not pulling the foil too tightly. Toss them in the oven on a baking sheet and cook at about 400 degrees for 30 minutes or so.
You can also cook these over the campfire or on the grill. Click here to see how we are cooking them over our Washing Machine Fire Pit.

Oh, and if there are any leftovers…? Melt a little butter on a medium hot griddle and let these guys crisp right up and then serve alongside your favorite egg dish or in a breakfast burrito the next morning. Yum!
