For the last several months my family has had this amazing newfangled thing called a weekend.
As a rail road family, this has been (and will continue to be) a very, VERY rare thing.
So we have been soaking up these few precious moments where everyone is in the same place at the same time by taking family trips to the fishin’ hole when we can…
Now Mama is not really a fisherwoman, but Miss Add and Puddie are avid fisherpeople…
BUT, Mama does love to cook and read and relax with Mr. Octavius on the bankside…
Since we have been going so often to our spot, this time I decided to switch it up from our usual Campfire Chicken and instead make Ribs, Grilled Cabbage (recipe coming soon) and Creekside Potatoes.
To start, pull out two long strips of foil and lay out 6 strips of bacon (uncooked).
Add 3 large red potatoes, slice pretty thin and season them well with salt and pepper.
Now add 1/2 half of a large green bell pepper (chopped) and one small onion (chopped).
Now repeat… 6 slices of bacon, 3 large potatoes, salt and pepper, 1/2 bell pepper (chopped) and then 1 small onion (chopped).
Now wrap your sides in and add foil if necessary to make a watertight foil packet.
Place the packet bacon side down on a charcoal grill (lowered onto the coals) for 20 minutes.
Flip packet and cook for 15 minutes more.
Check potatoes for tenderness and serve.

Bacon on the top and the bottom?! Pure genius.

We’re going camping in a couple weeks and I can’t wait to try this. Thanks for the recipe.

I wonder how well these would do on a gas grill….anyone have any thoughts?
