Mom’s Potatoes

foil potatoesMy Mom has been making potatoes in foil on the grill for as long as I can remember. Potatoes were almost the only vegetable my Dad would eat. She makes them with butter, salt, and pepper. I prefer using rosemary and olive oil. This recipe also works well cooked over the coals on a camping trip.
