Directions

Build a campfire or heat the oven to 425 degrees F.

Make slices across each potato about 1/4-inch apart, making sure not to cut all the way through; the slices should remain joined at the bottom. To do this, you can line your work surface with 2 parallel chop sticks and place a potato between them so you will not be able to cut through completely.

Place a sage leave between each potato slice (tear the leaf in half if it is too large). Add a sprinkling of the garlic. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Wrap each potato in 2 layers of heavy-duty foil. If using a campfire, bury the package in the coals. Make sure you don't put them in the dead center of the fire or you'll end up with potato ash. Cook until tender and crisp, 35 to 45 minutes. The length of time will depend on how hot the fire is. Alternatively, you can bake the potatoes in the oven until tender, about 45 minutes.

Drizzle lightly with more olive oil before serving.

    I love this idea! The combinations are endless. I want to make the exact recipe but for an backpacking trip where space was tight and no cooler possible, I came up with this variation. Cooked a sweet potato (because I had one) in the microwave and loosely wrapped it in heavy duty foil. Filled a baggie with shredded extra sharp cheese (because I had it), then added fresh sage, chives, and a few dried herbs. Put some olive oil in a baggie. My plan for dinner was to halve and slice the potato, add the olive oil and cheese mixture, close back up, wrap tighter in the foil and put it in the fire to reheat. Then I couldn't go. So I cut the sweet potato in chunks, spread the cheese mix on and around and reheated in the microwave. Absolutely delish. Looking forward to making the exact recipe and other yummy variations.

    We used smaller yukon type potatoes. deliciously simply. We used fresh rosemary and dill, since we did not have sage. One of the biggest issues with cooking potatoes is under cooking. This ensures an even and crisp potato that cooks quickly.

    Buon appetito!

    I made these last night on the grill along with some chicken legs and thighs. I left the skins on the potatoes though. They were DELICIOUS and a really big hit with everyone. I sliced my garlic into thin almost "chip"like slices and stuffed them in the folds with the sage. I did not catch the whole episode but I did see Debi present this one thing and I said that I was going to make it so I did. It is not really difficult to make and it is super delish!
