Not your usual baked potatoes over the campfire, but just easy!

  2. cut lengthwise in 4-5 slices almost to bottom, but not through.
  3. Insert a slice of butter and sprinkle with garlic salt into each slice.
  4. Wrap each potato in foil.
  5. Bake over hot coals for 1 hour until soft, turning every 15 minutes.

What a nice easy way to prepare potatoes. Instead of inserting the butter in each slice I still cut the potatoes in slices, but I just spread the butter over top and sprinkled the garlic salt on top. They turned out great. Thanks for a terrific recipe.
