Campfire Cooking

With the start of summer, I'm sure everyone is anxious to embark on their special summer trip to the beach, the mountains or maybe just to your own backyard. If your forays take you into the great outdoors, you're in luck. There's nothing quite nicer than foods prepared and enjoyed outdoors, especially if it occurs during a camping trip. The variety of foods you can bring to a campfire cookout are almost endless, but anything that will taste good cooked over an open fire is usually in order.

Potatoes make excellent choices for meals in the outdoors and they're easy to carry in a backpack or knapsack. Here's a great recipe for campfire roasted potatoes that really accentuates the flavors of great potatoes and the best part is that it only requires less than ten ingredients!

Campfire Roasted Potatoes
Serves 6

  • 2 pounds small potatoes, such as Russian fingerlings or Red Bliss, scrubbed well
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Coarse salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 sprigs fresh rosemary
  • 6 cloves garlic, peeled
  1. Heat a grill pan over a fire until medium hot. If necessary, cut the potatoes into uniform pieces to ensure even cooking. In a large bowl, combine the potatoes, olive oil, salt and pepper, rosemary and garlic. Toss to combine.
  2. Transfer the potatoes to a 12-by-24-inch piece of heavy-duty aluminum foil. Fold and seal the edges of the foil to form a package.
  3. Place the foil package on the grill pan. Grill the potatoes over the fire until they are tender when tested with the tip of a knife, about 35 to 45 minutes. Remove the potatoes from the foil package, and serve.
