EASY AND PERFECT POTATO PACKETS

EASY AND PERFECT POTATO PACKETS
In the last couple of years, this side dish has quickly become a favorite of ours. My husband can never remember the name of them, he just says “Can you make those potato thingies in the aluminum foil.” I know exactly what he is referring to.

INGREDIENTS:

3 large russet potatoes
2 tbsp. minced garlic, divided use
4 tbsp. butter, divided use
1/3 cup heavy cream, divided use
salt & pepper, to taste
1/2 yellow onion, diced (optional)
nonstick aluminum foil

DIRECTIONS:

Preheat oven to 375 degrees (F) or preheat your grill. Give your potatoes a good scrub with a paper towel or rinse them off a bit and dry. Dice potatoes into cubes. Leaving the skin on.
You’re gonna need 4 sheets of nonstick aluminum foil squares to make the packets. On each of the four squares, divide up the cubed potatoes and place a tbsp. of butter on top. Evenly sprinkle minced garlic over each of the four servings (also, add onion if you’re using). Then sprinkle with kosher salt & pepper.
Fold up the sides but leave an opening at the top.
Now, pour a bit of the heavy cream onto each of the potato packets. Evenly distribute the cream as best you can between all four packets. Feel free to add a bit more cream as necessary …
