Bacon & Onion Foil Wrapped Baked Homefries

Linda Kauppinen


I found this recipe on Facebook. The original recipe was called Bacon and onion foil packet potatoes and was great but I am trying to stay away from as much processed foods as possible and wanted all organic. Plus the recipe was mainly a dinner side but I wanted to do something for breakfast. So I changed it up a bit and this is my personal remake.
The original recipe called for 1 packet of onion soup powder & grated cheese which was optional. I added bell pepper, garlic, mushroom, parsley and paprikal.
Cook on the grill or in the oven!
My son and I both loved this recipe!

Directions Step-By-Step

Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Lay a layer of aluminum foil in the bottom of roasting pan.

Add 1/2 of the bacon and gently toss to mix well.
Salt and pepper to taste and sprinkle the paprika.. gently toss to mix well again.
Top with remaining bacon.
Top with slices of butter.
Take the additional piece(s) of aluminum foil placing on the top of the mixture and sealing edges to bottom layer.

Remove foil to brown lightly for about 20 minutes.
