Garlic Potatoes

  A few years ago, at a family get together, I made these potatoes, along with this grilled chicken recipe.

They were a hit.

Everyone was either asking for the recipe or asking for an invite the next time I made them.

They are really easy to make. You can pop them in the oven and forget about them.

I thought I’d share them with you for your next big get together.

I hope I’m not too late!

Here’s what you need.

First, preheat the oven to 450. Then wash and cut up the potatoes into bite size pieces.

Clean and cut the onion into wedges.

 Place in bowl, add the vegetable oil and mix well. Then add salt, pepper and garlic powder and toss them to coat well.


With cooking spray, spray a large piece of foil.

Add the potato mixture to the center of the foil and form a packet. Leaving room inside the packet for air circulation.

And place in baking dish.

Bake for 25 to 30 minutes. Open packet and serve.

I hope you try them sometime, they are really tasty.

  1. Oh I make these all the time. We love to put the foil packet on the BBQ and let it cook away. I also do them in the oven but I must say I learned to do this over a campfire when young. They are absolutely delicious.
