I do something similar except they are oven baked. Wegde or slice the potatoes and marinate for a few minutes in the seasoning & oil mix. Bake in a single layer in oven at a high temperature for about 45 minutes. Wonderful.

Sounds good. I will have to try baking it one time. Thanks for sharing. Debbie

Hmmmm, looks like my home fries.
I season them with chili powder when they are about halfway done and cook them with real onion, sweet preferred. Top off with some sour cream and I'm in heaven. I usually make them this way with pork chops or ribs.... mmmm

Like German bratkartoffeln (fried potatoes). The difference would be first, bacon is fried and removed and then the sliced potatoes are fried in the bacon fat. Crumbled bacon added back in often.

They look great. One thing I do to speed up the process is slice the potatoes with either a mandolin to achieve uniform thickness or use an apple slicer that produces wedges. This way the is some uniformity and I don't get some overcooked because they are too thin and undercooked because they are too thick. Try these recipes with sweet potatoes too. Ummmmmmm!

Any special potatos that are better than others for this recipe?---when I'm home I see those Yukon Golds--would they work? Over here you basically have the huge wide selection of ONE and it's similar to a russet. :)

Great suggestions, MJK. We love potatoes, too. Flukx, my mom used to make fried potatoes the way you describe it. They are certainly yummy that way, but my arteries won't let me eat them. (Maybe for a treat, though. Hmmmm)

Yum! Looks good! Have you ever tried putting your potatoes in a foil pouch and cooking them on the grill?

What a coincidence I had just prepared this potato dish for supper before opening my pc.

I often prepare this dish because it is my husband's one of the favourite dishes. He take it with plain rice.

You are welcome everyone. I hope you enjoy.

expatgirl, I really like using white potatoes, red or the Yukon Golds the best.

PytnPlace, I have not tried this recipe with foil but I have cooked a lot of other potato recipes in foil. I'm sure this recipe would be great. Thanks for mentioning that.
