Why I Love This Recipe

From Barb and Ray, a couple I met while camping. She made them in the coals...

Ingredients You'll Need

Medium sized baking potatoes - 1 per person
Olive oil
Italian seasoning
Red pepper flakes


Place the potato on a cutting board and lay the handle of a wooden spoon tightly against the bottom. This will act as a knife stop.

Slice the potato from the top down, stopping when you hit the wooden spoon.

Repeat all the way across the potato with slices at 1/3" intervals.

It will creat a 'hinged' potato.

Drizzle olive oil LIGHTLY between each slice.

Sprinkle Italian seasoning LIGHTLY between each slice.

Wrap in foil and bake in the oven @ 475 or on the grill over med. heat for about 45 minutes.(or till done)

Just before potatoes are done, melt (per Potato) 1T unsalted butter, 1 tsp of capers and a pinch of red pepper flakes.

Unwrap potato, roll foil downward to make a dish - spoon caper sauce over potato and serve.

Also try Curry - Greek - Old Bay - Lemon Pepper - Parsley-sage-rosemary-thyme (English) - Mexican with Jalepinos
