Why I Love This Recipe

We were on a camping trip.... long time ago.... when one of the guys made this. I liked it so much that I adapted it for the grill and oven, since I don't camp anymore.

Ingredients You'll Need

1 lb potatoes
4 tbsp Butter
6 Strips of Bacon cut into pieces
Red Pepper Flakes


Peel and cut the potatoes into cubes, about 1 inch square.

Put 1 tbsp butter on a sheet of foil large enough to hold all of the potatoes.

Put the potatoes on top of the butter.

Put remaining butter on top of the potatoes along with all of the bacon pieces.

Sprinkle lightly with red pepper flakes (careful not to over do it)

Close up the foil and seal it. Set it on the edge of a hot grill or camp fire for about 35 minutes or until the potatoes are tender. Serve it hot!

These can also be made in the oven if you put it in a casserole dish and cover it. Bake at 350 for 45 minutes.
