While not necessarily a French Canadian dish, it has been one of my go-to sides dishes for a while. This dish combines all of the elements of baked potatoes into one dish (minus the sour cream and bacon). The heat will melt the butter while it cooks the potatoes, onions and garlic to create this ready to eat dish.
Easy to prepare and cooks in the oven or barbecue while you work on the main dish. You can also add in leftover chicken, pork or beef to make this a complete meal.
- 12 oz (350 g) of potatoes
- 2½ oz (75 g) of minced onions
- 2 cloves (7 g) of pressed garlic
- 3 tablespoons (45 ml) of butter
- ½ teaspoon (2.5 ml) of salt
- ¼ teaspoon (1.25 ml) of pepper
- ¼ teaspoon (1.25 ml) of Italian seasoning
- Pre-heat oven to 375°F (190°C).
- Prepare two pieces of tin foil, approximately 12 x 15 inches (30 x 40 cm) in length.
- Scrub, rinse and cut up the potatoes into small cubes then place on the tin foil.
- Drop onions, garlic, salt, pepper and Italian seasoning atop potatoes.
- Top with butter and close up the first layer of tin foil. Wrap in a second to prevent any leaks.
- Place in the oven and cook for 60 minutes. Alternatively, place on an outdoor grill for the same amount of time.
- When done, pull from the oven, mix the contents and it is ready to serve.
