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.
