Taters and shallots are like Starsky and Hutch or peanut butter and jelly. They go together really well. Inseparable. Anyway, this has long been a favorite campfire meal side dish that I began doing ritualistically almost 10 years ago. Campfire or not, throw some potatoes and shallots together with a little fat and it will come out great.
Cut the shallots into big chunks after peeling them as shown in the photo. Cut potatoes into large chunks as well. Toss with a little salt and spice and a squirt of olive oil to get them all lightly coated and you’re ready to seal them up into an aluminum foil pouch. Holy Schnikies!
