Smokey Potatoes--Summer Side

My husband (a Silver Beaver) has been on many camp outs. One of his favorite meals is Foil Dinners, he has these down to a science. I think Foil Dinners deserve their own post soon. But today I want to share a delicious cousin of the Foil Dinner, maybe a little sister.
This packet of foil holds the most delicious tender flavorful side. Perfect with any summer cookout, or cook in the oven as I did.

It is pretty simple, slice potatoes and onions--I use a mandolin for quick even slices. Pile potato slices, a few onion slices and a tablespoon of diced butter. Add salt and pepper and the secret ingredient--smokey paprika. The smokey paprika makes this dish wonderful. Full of flavor!

I use extra heavy duty foil. Just believe me when I tell you it is much better than 'two layers of foil'.
Cook for about 20-25 minutes in a 400 degree oven or on a grill or coals. Check out Our Best Bites for more cooking outdoor info.
Enjoy often!
