Tin Foil Red Potatoes and Onions

Recipe by mittens 1
READY IN: 45mins
YIELD: 3 cups


  • 4
    red potatoes
  • 1
    medium white onion
  • 2
    tablespoons olive oil (or enough to evenly coat all onions and potatoes)
  • all purpose Greek seasoning (I found it at walmart...rosemary, oregano, and thyme work well too)
  • 3
    sheets aluminum foil
  • cookie baking sheet


  • Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Slice red potatoes so they are about an 1/2 inch thick.*.
  • Chop onions into large peices.
  • Put the olive oil into a bowl.
  • Put all of the onions and potatoes into the bowl with olive oil.
  • Stir the veggies (preferably with a slotted spoon) until they are all equally coated with olive oil.
  • Take the cookie sheet and place some tin foil on the sheet.
  • Make a cross with two sheets of tin foil on the foil covered cookie sheet (make sure you have enough foil to create a pouch for your potatoes and onions).
  • **I think Reynolds sells pre made aluminum foil pouches -- I didn't have them handy but my homemade pouch worked fine.**.
  • Transfer the onions and potatoes to the center of the tin foil cross, making sure to drain the excess olive oil (why the slotted spoon comes in handy!).
  • When you have all the veggies in the middle sprinkle your seasoning mixture on the potatoes, putting as much on as you like.
  • After seasoning, take all four sides of the tin foil cross and bring them up and into the center, making a little pouch for the potatoes and onions to cook inches.
  • Place in a 400 degree oven for 30 minutes.
  • Potatoes will be done when you can stick a fork through a potato without resistance.
  • *Adjust cooking time to fit the size of the potatoes you want.
