Foil Roasted Potatoes

This is more of a technique than a recipe.

Categories: , ,


  1. Choose fresh little new potatoes, scrub them well, and dry them.
  2. Lay out a sheet of heavy-duty foil or a double layer of thinner foil.
  3. Spread about 1 tbsp. of butter on the foil.
  4. Leave the smaller ones whole, cut the larger ones in half or four so they are all roughly the same size.
  5. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and drizzle with a little oil.
  6. Place sprigs of woody herbs, such as thyme or rosemary, and if you like garlic scatter some slices over the potatoes. Wrap tightly and roast in a 400 degree oven or on the barbeque (not
    over direct heat) for about 45 minutes to 1 hour, depending on the size of the potatoes.
  7. When they are done, place them in a bowl and sprinkle with parsley, chives, etc.
