    happynana's Note:

    This is a recipe that I have had for years. I originally got it off of a Lipton Soup Mix box and changed a bit. I like red potatoes the best but any can be used. I also add chopped carrots if I have them on hand. Originally designed for grill, I have cooked them in the oven in packets on a cookie sheet.

      So easy & very flavorful. Fixed for SIL & DD & it was a huge hit- loved by all. The biggest problem was that I needed to double each packet because they were begging for more.

      What can we say but we loved this recipe! I made out up in no time at all. I love it when you can sit back and just watch it cook. Will be making again.

      These are simple and yet delicious potatoes. The blend of flavors were just right, they cook pretty well directly on the grill and they came out tender. I flipped them and grilled for a few mins just to make sure both sides were cooked but won't let them stay directly on the grill that long.. probably just 15-20 mins overall as 1 bottom of a potato slice got scorched on my 1st 2 packets even if the foil doesn't look like it so better check.. :D Thanks, happynana!
