Foil Potatoes Recipe

Individually baked foiled potatoes can be done in the oven, on a barbecue or even in a campfire. Tasty and fun to do.


4 medium baking potatoes, scrubbed
4 tablespoons butter
4 teaspoons garlic powder
2 teaspoons salt
1/2 cup shredded cheese
2 teaspoons freshly chopped parsley

(Serves 4)


Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

Lay out 4 squares of aluminum foil on the counter.

Scrub the potatoes clean cutting off any blemishes.

Cut each potato in half lengthwise, then cut in opposite direction so that you have quartered the potato.

Place onto a square of aluminum foil. Place 1/4 tablespoon of butter onto the cut side of each half, then season with garlic powder and salt.

Close the potato back together, and wrap tightly in the aluminum foil.

Bake potatoes directly on the oven rack for 40 minutes, or until tender.

Open carefully, divide the shredded cheese while the potatoes are still hot and sprinkle with parsley.
