Easy and Savory Grilled Campfire Potatoes in a Foil Packet

Easy and Savory Grilled Campfire Potatoes in a Foil Packet. There’s just something wonderful about campfire food. One of my favorites has always been the campfire foil packets of potatoes tender and cheesy – hot off of the grill.

Campfire Potatoes

The kids love getting their very own potato packets. I love seeing how excited they are with this classic campfire recipe. When I was a little girl, my mom was the camp chef. There was jus something special about waking up to camping pancakes, or a western hashbrown casserole in a foil pan. Then finishing the day with apple crisp in a foil packet. Cooking over a fire on cast iron skillets makes everything taste better. Doesn’t it?  Oh my goodness…the morning pancakes were the best.

      Can you put these in the oven?

      1. Melissa

        Hi Terri. You can absolutely bake these in the oven. Set your temperature to 375 degrees and bake for 45-50 minutes (or until potatoes are tender and you can pierce them easily with a fork).
