    I was short on time so I tossed all the ingredients to coat well and placed into microwaveable ovenware. I microwaved this dish for about 5 minutes and then spread it on a cookie sheet to broil in the oven for another few minutes. My family claims it's a keeper. YUM! - 6/2/12

    Been doing this aver 40 years. So good. Foil packet cooking or grilling is not new, but easy, easy clean up, wonderful way to meld flavors. Used to make up the packets, stash them in a cooler and cook at a picnic site or camp site. They bake well in the oven too. - 6/2/12
    I make foil pack potatoes all the time but just throw stuff in. This was nice to have all the measurements and nutrition calculated for me. Thought there would be more garlic flavor than I tasted. Overall yummy! - 6/2/12
    We do this all the time. So delicious. If we cook them on the grill, we microwave them first, for a few minutes so they don't burn before cooking through completely. - 6/2/12
    Delicious.........I used Chives instead of Shallots, but otherwise did everything else the same. - 6/2/12
    Tried it in the oven, Gas Mark 5, and they were still raw after 25 minutes. I'd parboil the spuds first next time. - 6/8/13
    Fantastic!!! I added some cubed pumpkin but skipped the shallots (had none), and I LOVED IT!!! - 11/17/13
    Like the flavors but it isn't fully cooked in 25 minutes. Next time I'll quarter, instead of halve, the potatoes to see if they'll cook faster. - 7/30/13
    I did the whole thing in the microwave in 7 minutes! Yummmmm - 6/2/13
    Made it with fingerlings & fresh from the garden rosemary. Quite nice. - 7/7/12
    Add parchment paper over tin foil - 7/30/13

    You can add carrots, turnips, or parsnips too. So yummy. - 1/9/15
    I ended up cooking this is the oven and cooking it for 40 minutes at 400 and the potatoes still were not done. I may try this again on the grill, but right now I'm unimpressed with it. - 6/9/13
    I've been making these since we started camping in 1985. It's the best way to make without all the cleanup - 6/3/13

    This was an easy meal to plan and prepare ahead......especially for those busy days! - 9/22/17
    I add Miss. Dash and a few other seasonings. I put them in a plastic bag and allow the favors to infuse. The family loves when I make them. - 8/11/17

    Really enjoyed. Tried spraying the foil with canola oil and then used only 1 tbsp olive oil. Cut the calories a little. - 7/23/17
    I will try this. Sounds good - 7/18/17
