Does anyone have any ideas for good camping potatoes?  We are sick of the
usual ones we make--slice taters, wrap in foil with butter, garlic, onion
and s&P.  Cook in the fire until done.  I'm sure there must be other
recipes out there!

	Would other herbs be enough of a variation?  Rosemary and
thyme, maybe? (They'd go well with garlic, too.)  Some paprika?  Some
shredded cheese to go on top when you pull it out of the fire?  What
you described sounds pretty good to me.  :)

Well, here's what I did last time I went camping:  nuke potatoes ahead
of time for quicker cooking.  When you get to camp, fail to build fire
after hours of trying.  Sit in front of a heap of smoking wood and eat
potatoes cold.  Suggested accompaniments:  cold hot dogs and uncooked
s'mores.

I recommend adding seeded/deveined dried/smoked peppers.  Maybe Anchos or
Chipotles.  Or maybe just some Chipotles in Adobo. :)  Or some Passilla,
maybe?

These work for me:

Take one potato.  Cut in half, lenthgwise.  Butter or oil potato, inside & out.
Season each half with salt, pepper, or whatever.  Put a bay leaf on one side,
put the potato back together, then wrap in foil and cook.

Also, take one potato and make thin slices in it down it's whole width, being
careful to not cut all the way through.  Put it on a piece of foil.  Sprinkle
oil over it, and add your favorite seasonings, (pressing them into the slices),
maybe some thin onion slices between the leaves of the "book,"  wrap and bake.

You could bake the taters in the coals, then open them and top
with cheese, broccoli, bacon bits. et al.

You could dice them, and make home fries in the fry pan or on
the griddle.

You could substitute sweet potatoes, roasted whole.  Heavenly.

Why not try sweet potatoes instead, or branch out and skip the potatoes.
Instead, have corn on the cob if you can get it fresh.

People in the North American continent have no idea how lucky they are to be
able to get fresh corn at a price that doesn't make the fillings in your teeth
melt.
