Campfire Roasted Potatoes

Yield 8 servings


  • 8 medium baking potatoes
  • 2 tablespoons butter or margarine, softened
  • Butter
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Commercial sour cream (optional)

How to Make It

  1. Wash potatoes well; rub with 2 tablespoons butter. Wrap each in heavy-duty aluminum foil, shiny side in. Seal tightly.

  2. Knock gray ash off briquets or coals in grill. Lay potatoes on coals. Cook, turning frequently, for 50 to 60 minutes. Potatoes are done when they yield to soft pressure.
