Garlic Potato Packets


  • 1 1/2 lb potatoes 
  • 3 oz butter 
  • 2 cloves garlic 
  • 1 branch fresh parsley or coriander 
  • Lemon juice 
  • Tabasco  
  • Salt and pepper 


Boil the scraped potatoes in plenty of salted water until the tip of the knife meets a little resistance when inserted in the center. Drain, and when cool enough, slice the potatoes into 1/4 inch pieces. 

Chop the herbs and garlic finely and mix into the butter adding a squeeze of lemon juice, Tabasco and seasoning to taste.

Divide the potato slices between the sheets of foil and top with a spoonful of garlic butter.

Gather 6 sht foil (about 12" square) together to form bundles, keeping the gathered end uppermost, and cook over hot coals for 10 minutes.
