  • 2 pounds potatoes
  • 1 medium onion
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • aluminum foil
  • seasoning


  1. Cut the potatoes and onions into 1/4 inch slices. Break the onion slices out into rings. Layer the potatoes and onions on a piece of heavy duty aluminum foil, and spread the butter over the top. Fold and close the foil, and punch a couple of small holes in it to allow steam to escape. Cooking time will vary, but should take about 20 to 30 minutes. After twenty minutes, check the potatoes to see if they are tender. Salt and pepper to taste, then serve.
  2. Don't cook too close to the campfire, nor right on top of the coals or grill. Rotate now and then to avoid hot spots.
