Dad's PotatoesPosted on: March 23, 2017
Serves 6 to 8
3 tablespoons unsalted butter, at room temperature
Salt and black pepper, for seasoning
Celery salt, for seasoning
Garlic powder, for seasoning
1 pound seasoned Tater Tots
½ cup chopped white onion
½ cup seeded and chopped green bell pepper
½ cup sliced white button mushrooms
½ cup chopped zucchini
Lay 2 feet of aluminum foil on a table and rub some butter along
the middle. Add salt and pepper, celery salt, and garlic powder.
Don’t overseason, because the Tater Tots are preseasoned. Put the
Tater Tots across the butter, then add the chopped vegetables.
Fold up the sides of the foil, making a canoe, then fold up the
ends to ensure that none of the mixture falls out. Now take
another piece of foil, wrap it around the air pocket, and roll like a
Cook for 15 to 20 minutes on both sides over medium-high heat
either on a griddle or grill, or in a fire pit. It’s done when all the vegetables
are cooked through.
The great thing about this recipe is you can either cook it immediately
or throw it in your fridge or cooler and cook it later. This is a
good side dish while you’re camping. Because of the foil wrap there
is absolutely no cleanup. Everyone likes that.
