I couldn't decide whether to post this in camping or food but decided you campers would soon get me sorted!
We're off to Camp Bestival and I've bought a disposable bbq and plan to take the usual burgers and hot dogs etc. but thought it'd be nice to take some sort of herby potatoes. I don't like tin potatoes so do I need to cook the potatoes at home and reheat them on the bbq? If I took raw potatoes, chopped and herbed them and wrapped them in foil would they cook until soft on a disposable?
I'm trying to think of something to add to the menu to make it more than just burgers and hot dogs. I'm planning on taking SO much to the festival and space is limited so I'm trying to keep the food side simple yet tasty.
BTW did you know M&S curry is £3 a tin. £3 a flipping tin
If I was forced to cook potatoes on a BBQ I would try slicing them thinly, dotting butter and herbs amongst them, wrapping them in foil, piercing the foil a few times and placing on the grill, so that they half steam in the foil, but also get the grill effect.
Spuds + bbq, not happening IMO Best also check you are allowed to take the tin foil bbq jobbie as they are banned form many festivals both for potential ground damage and as they stay so hot for so long and could pose a danger to drunken types meandering through your camp. Better off with a stove or a bluet IME. Other good things to take - puy lentils in a pouch; halloumi cheese, couscous
I have made sausage and potato skewers which were lovely. I boiled some new potatoes until they were very nearly cooked through, and then coated these in some oil. These were then put on skewers with some sausages chopped in thirds, and cooked on the BBQ until the sausages were cooked. In this case, the potatoes were still warm when put on the skewers, so I wonder how it would work if they were cold, but hopefully it would work!
