CREAMY GARLIC 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.Creamy Garlic Potato Packets with grilled steak

GARLIC, BUTTER, CREAM, POTATOES = HEAVEN

It is such an easy concept and it makes one potato go a long way. One large potato is enough for me and my husband. I’ve said this before but my husband is a true meat and potatoes man. To the core. Hard core. So naturally, he went nuts over this. Now, I am an onion lover and if you are too, I suggest you throw some in there. My husband (Mr. Picky eater, with a capital “P”) will turn hide and run if he sees even a hint of onion. And it’s hard to sneak them in on a dish like this. But he does love garlic, so garlic it is!

Cook’s Note: Trying doing these on the grill. Prepare the same way. Put on a grill sheet over medium heat for about 35-45 minutes (check after the first 30 minutes). Also, make sure you clean your grill really well. If there are any old, crusty bits on your grates, then it may poke a hole in the aluminum foil (or you could just double-foil these packets).
