  1. What a bunch of spicy goodness! I made as posted except I used a russet potato because that's what I had. I cut it in wedges and based on other reviewers, I parboiled mine for about 3 minutes. Tossed everything on the foil packet and it was done and so very tasty in 20 minutes. DH even said "Wow! my mouth is on fire", I guess I should have used the smaller amount of red pepper flakes. We love it! Thanks for posting. :)
  2. Nice potato recipe and I even forgot the olive oil! I did divide into two packets for the grill. I sprayed each foil square with spray olive oil. I sliced my potatoes and then made as directed and added sea salt and fresh ground pepper. My DH asked if there was butter and then that was when I remembered I forgot the olive oil. It was great without it - nice and tender. We really enjoyed this recipe. I used the full t. pepper flakes. Thanks Gertc. Made for Fall PAC 2008.
  3. These were super easy and super tasty. I used quartered, small red potatoes, which may have affected my cooking time - 20 minutes was definitely NOT enough, and because I had broken the seal of the pouch, I ended up finishing them in a skillet. Next time, I'll leave them for at least 30 minutes, and check them more carefully in case they need more time. These were cooked in the oven because our grill is currently broken. I also put the pouch on a cookie sheet, which was good, since some of the EVOO did seep out after I turned it over. Once I get the cooking time right, these are excellent, especially for the ease of prep and clean-up! Thanks, we'll eat these again and again.

Wesley will be five in June and Katelyn will be eight in June.... I'm always looking for new things to cook and try out on all of my family.... I'm also a teacher to 17 wonderful 3 yr. olds.... I'm always looking for quick, easy, and wonderful tasting food to fix that my whole family will enjoy... My husband is a picky meat and potatoes man.... SO, any time I fix something new that he likes, is amazing.... Wesley is like his daddy and loves to eat meat and potatoes, but he's also real good about trying other foods.... Katelyn, will eat whatever she can get her hands on.... Katelyn has some special needs and we have to watch what she eats and how she eats.... You can check out her website by clicking our link....
