One of the many 'pouch' side dishes that are a staple in my BBQ and campfire repertoire. Dish free, easy to put together, and they puff up when they are ready. What could be easier?

Prep:

Cook:

30 Min

Method:

Barbecue

Ingredients

4-5 medium
potatoes, diced
1 large
onion, diced
3 Tbsp
butter or margarine
2 tsp
montreal steak seasoning

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Combine diced potatoes and onion onto a piece of heavy duty foil - shiny side up - large enough to leave 2-3 inches of clear foil on either side and 4-5 inches top and bottom of your potato pile
2
Sprinkle 1 tsp of the steak spice over potato mixture, toss, then sprinkle the 2nd tsp.
3
Place chunks of the butter both on the bottom and top of your potato pile
4
Bring the top and bottom edges of the foil together and fold over several times, leaving some air space between potatoes and foil.
5
Repeat with each side of your foil package until a sealed pouch is formed
6
Cook pouch indirectly on the BBQ - meaning on an upper rack, over a non-burning element, or to the side of your burning charcoal - for 30mins, turn the pouch every 8-10. Total cooking time will vary with heat level of BBQ/fire mins
7
When potatoes are cooked, the pouch will swell up with steam. Note - this will only work if your pouch is well sealed and you haven't accidentally poked a hole in it during handling
8
Open foil pouch and serve. Watch out for the steam when you first tear the foil - especially if the pouch is puffed up!
Enjoy!
