Tin Foil Tater's

Lou Kostura


You can do these in an oven, on a BBQ grill, in a camp fire or even in a skillet without the foil. This is a easy way to pre prep for a camping trip, hunting trip, picnic where you will cook them later. Just cut everything and mix together in a zip lock bag to be put in foil and cooked later
