    I made these for the family last eve and for the most part they all loved them. I myself ate way too many!! Next time I will reduce the amount of olive oil used as the bottom of the pan had plenty extra oil/butter mix. Thank you for the recipe! The kids love mashed potatoes and I get sick of them so had to find a way to change it up :)

    Hmm.. well that is the first comment along those lines I've gotten. I've never had it be greasy at all. I acknowledge your comment and I am sorry it didn't work for you. My immediate guess is that the fire was not hot enough to carmelize all of the butter and oil. But that is just a guess. I truly do appreciate your review. Most people who don't like something will just slink away. Thanks for the heads up and I'll look at refining the cooking instructions.

    Would never ever make this dish again. It's like sucking oil and clarified butter right out of the bottle. Yuck! Suprisingly I was still able to taste the garlic flavor through all the grease. I like garlic.

    Figure out a way to cut out 90% of the oil and butter.

    This sounds great--I do something like this with veggies on the grill but never even thought about taters--this is great!! Thank you.

    Sounds good to me! I didn't realize you had a Hobo recipe posted when I posted my meal.
    I have a felling I could really like your hobo potatoes with some Parmesan cheese and bacon sprinkled over the top. Good for the HDL!!!
    I will add this to my recipes that I will try this week. YUMMMMM

    By the way, I don't usually rate my own recipes but this one has been around several years, has been prepared and offered to guests many times and has always been a hit. So if I seem a little smug... well ... yeah. And it's not really my recipe, I swiped it. :)

    Got this recipe from a chef here in Louisville who was attending a Mother's Day dinner at my daughters. She had planned on scalloped potatoes, steaks & cooked asparagus. So naturally the power went out. We had a grill so he whipped up the Hobo Potatoes. Made a vinagrette to cold cook the asparagus and grilled the steaks. Lifesaver.
