Camper Potatoes
« on: April 30, 2011, 10:52:46 pm »
Here is another on of our favorites.  Been around for a while.

4 potatoes cut into slices with skin on
1 sweet potatoe cut into slices with skin on.
1/2 stick butter
paprika to taste
garlic powder to taste
1 teaspoon season salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 medium onion cut into thin slices
1/2 teaspoon caraway seed
1 cup colbey/montery jack cheese mix

Spread out one good size sheet of tinfoil.  Place cut potatoes on sheet in layers.  Place sliced onion on top. Sprinkle paprika, season salt,caraway seed,pepper and garlic power over potatoes. Cut  butter into pieces and place liberally around the potatoes. Fold tin foil into rectangle sealing tightly.  Take a second piece of foil and cover again tightly.  Cook on low on grill for 30 to 45 minutes depending on the thickness of your cut of potatoes.  When potatoes are cooked through remove from grill open foil and sprinkle cheese on top.  Lightly close foil to let steam from potatoes melt cheese.   After 5 minutes dig in and enjoy.  When we are camping and are eating outside we spoon right from the foil.  My children think the best part are the potatoes that have been almost fried that are stuck to the foil. Yum!

In the late 80's/early 90s, our kids in Royal Rangers (a Boyscout type of a group) learned a similar meal, but with potatoes, meat, and carrots with salt and peper.  Wrap in multi-layers and folds of tin foil, then toss in the hot coals of a camp fire.  It is quite amazing how tasty that quick all in one meal is.
