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?

How to Make Pouch Potatoes

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!
