I love potatoes. I love barbeque sauce. So it seems natural that my two favorite ingredients to cook with should join in delicious matrimony.
When I saw the recipe for potato packets on Pioneer Woman’s site, I was very saddened. Why didn’t I think of this?? It’s so simple: Place potatoes in an aluminum foil packet and bake. Sheesh.
But now that I have the knowledge powers, we will never again be without a quick and easy potato side again.
Here’s what you need:
Barbeque Potato Packets
adapted from Pioneer Woman
2 small-medium potatoes, diced
2 hot dogs (of the beef, turkey, or tofu/soy version)
3 tbsp barbeque sauce + 1 tbsp soy sauce
Salt and pepper to taste
Optional: 1 tsp paprika or cayenne pepper
1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Dice your onion.
2. Dice your potatoes into approximately 1″ cubes.
3. Slice your dogs.
4. Combine the barbeque sauce with the soy sauce.
5. Take a piece of foil and pile on your ingredients.
6. Drizzle with the sauce. And don’t worry, the sauce will get well distributed during the baking process.
7. Add on your spices. I used paprika, salt and pepper on mine and salt, pepper and cayenne pepper on Neil’s.
8. Wrap up your packets and place on a baking sheet or pan.
9. Bake for 40-45 minutes.
10. Remove and eat quickly. But not too quickly for the insides of the packets get very very hot. Safety first!
