When I have guests at the last minute, or I’m feeling lazy I like to make these foil packet potatoes. Each time I make them, they come out a little different as I switch up the herbs and spices but they’re easy just the same. Use the veggies as a base and toss what you have on hand. The amazing thing about recipes (most recipes) is that they’re flexible!

Easy to make Potato Foil Packets

This time, I went the extra mile and added leftover red onion (from my Three Pepper Salad) and added a red and green bell pepper. I was in a hurry, so I decided to keep the herbs and spices fairly basic: oregano, basil, sea salt, pepper, and paprika.

So here’s the funny thing: my husband loves potatoes, me: not so much.

He prefers potatoes to taste like potatoes with a little seasoning, whereas I like to change the flavor altogether. When it comes to potatoes, we’re the odd couple.

For more potato recipes we love try cottage fries, and smothered potatoes.
