An idea remembered from Girl Scout camp, these potatoes are tasty and fun. You can also make them on the grill. From the cookbook Lean and Luscious and Meatless.

This recipe lived up to Whisper’s promise that it was quick to make, so it’s a great recipe for times – and isn’t that just TOO MUCH of the time – when we just don’t have much time! I was a bit concerned the potato and onion might stick to the foil, so I brushed a little bit of olive oil on each piece of foil, and sprinkled the potatoes with some garlic salt and dried oregano. Then left them unattended to bake! They were delicious. A great accompaniment to so many other dishes, particularly ones which are demanding on time, but I do think they did need the addition of herbs. Thanks, Whisper, for a great recipe that I’ll certainly experiment with some more.
