Sizzling Spuds: Potatoes in Foil with Sauce Goddess Spices
The ultimate comfort food hack that’s both easy and insanely tasty – potatoes cooked in a foil pouch jazzed up with Sauce Goddess spices!
Imagine this: Tender, steamy potatoes absorbing all the spicy goodness, sealed in a foil pouch, and then baked or grilled to perfection. It’s like a surprise gift for your taste buds. Every bite? A delightful burst of flavor!
Why cook Veggies in Foil?
The onions caramelize and the potatoes get a bit crunchy. Toss in some peppers, or your favorite veggies for an added crunch and flavor. Mushrooms are tender and juicy cooked this way and so is zucchini.
The best part about using Sauce Goddess spices? You can elevate the humble potato to gourmet status. Just sprinkle the magic over your spuds, wrap them up, and let the oven or grill do the magic.
Bonus Tip for Camping
For a bonus tip, try cooking this way over a campfire. It’s easier than the baked potato and you can literally toss it into the coals to cook. Use heavy-duty foil for this one so it doesn’t tear.
Enjoy this at your next party. It's a great side dish for burgers or fancier fare too.
This is my Dad's recipe that I changed up. I know he would totally approve!
- 10 medium red potatoes, sliced into 1/4" slices
- 1 sweet onion, sliced into 1/4" thick slices
- 4 Tbsp cold butter cut into chunks
- 4 Tbsp olive oil
- 1-2 Tbsp Big Tom's Roasting Rub and Brine spices
- 6 pieces of regular aluminum foil, cut into 12x24" pieces
Building the Pouches
- Place the aluminum foil on a flat surface.
- Drizzle the middle with olive oil.
- Place4 small pieces of butter around.
- Top with 1/4 cup sliced onions.
- Add the same amount of potatoes.
- Sprinkle on Big Tom's Roasting Rub.
- Add more olive oil and butter.
Closing the Pouches
- Rotate the pouch so the short side is closest to you.
- Bring the short ends up until they meet in the middle.
- Fold them on themselves a couple of times to close.
- If there is a lot in the pouch the pieces could fall out the two ends.
- Now we do the same to both ends. Creating a sealed pouch.
- Now flip the pouch over and place it on another sheet of foil and repeat the sealing process.
- Continue until all 3 pouches are filled and sealed.
- Place the pouches on a medium grill or in a oven at 350 or fire with coals (not big flames)
- On the grill, cook for 5 minutes with the lid on. You will hear the sizzling immediately.
- Flip and continue cooking for another 5 minutes with the lid on.
- Keep flipping and rotating the cooking until you smell the spuds.
- The cook time could be 20 minutes or 30 minutes depending on your heat source.
In a nutshell, potatoes + foil + Sauce Goddess spices = heavenly bites. And to all my spud-loving pals, this one’s a game-changer!
