Foil Creamy Baked Potato

Cooked in foil placed in the campfire coals, these creamy baked potatoes are a delicious camping side packed full of flavor.

Similar to a potatoes bake they include cream, onion, and cheese to make a rich side dish. Changing the size of the potato(s) used decides whether this is something to share or an individual portion.

The flavor can be varied by the cheese selection and amount of herb rub used. If you want to scale this up to a full meal then consider adding additional protein to the pack such as ham or sausage.

Ingredients

1 large potato

1/2 brown onion

1/2 cup cream

1 cup cheese

herb rub

Equipment

foil

Recipe Directions

  1. Wash the potato removing any dirt or similar. Slice the potato in a Hasselback style, cutting most of the way through but not quite, leaving a small bit connected to the potato remains whole.

  2. Thinly slice the brown onion then place in between each potato slice.

  3. Place the onion filled potato on two sheets of foil and pull up the foil slightly to act as a bowl around the potato.

  4. Drizzle the cream onto the potato making sure it has the opportunity to get into the gaps between the potatoes. Top evenly with the greater cheese then sprinkle with the herb rub.

  5. Wrap the first sheet tightly around the potato. Turn 90 degrees then wrap in the second piece of foil, this time focusing on creating an air-tight seal, rolling the foil in.

  6. Place the foiled potato in the coals yet away from the burning part of the fire. Leave for 45 minutes then place into a fresh set of coals to finish the cooking process.

  7. When cooked the potato will be soft when squeezed. Remove from the coals, make sure there are no hot lumps of coal still attached, then rest 5 minutes before opening.

  8. Carefully open the foil being careful of any steam that may escape then serve or eat directly out of the foil.
