Yes, another potato recipe!

1 May

The Minneapolis Farmer’s Market is one of my favorite warmer weather haunts. And one of my favorite vendors is – hands down – Dehn’s Garden (#325) where you’re guaranteed to find the best selection and freshest herbs. Bonnie Dehn and Jan Benskin published a cookbook – Herbs In a Minnesota Kitchen – in 1992. It is 121 pages of recipes utilizing herbs – from Argula to Watercress and everything in between – in breads, soups, salads, entrees, even desserts.

Always on the look-out for more and different potato recipes, I was excited to find a recipe that is easy to assemble and can cook in aluminum foil right on top of the grill while grilling steaks, chicken or whatever. End result? Smoky, delicately flavored, tender potatoes – a big hit with my dinner guests last night! And no pans to wash! Betting you can alter the spices to your heart’s desire.

Hobo Potatoes

8 small potatoes (I used an even dozen red potatoes)

2 tablespoons butter

2-3 springs of mint

2 tablespoons chopped chives

1 teaspoon water

Place potatoes and butter on a sheet of aluminum foil. Sprinkle chives on top of potatoes. Lay mint sprigs across the top and sprinkle with water. (Optional: sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste). Cover tightly with foil. Bake in preheated 350 degree oven for 25 minutes. To barbecue, place on grill for 20-30 minutes.
