Potato Packets

Recipe by happynana

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.
