Very easy to make and super yummy. My mum used to make them when I was little. I love the taste of potatoes baked in an open camp fire with the little extra in between. The flavor from the bacon or speck makes this dish irresistible 🙂 Try it out!
Country Potatoes Baked In Open Campfire
- bacon or speck, naturally smoked would the best
- salt, pepper, paprika
- olive oil
Cut the potatoes few times and up to about 2/3 of the total width. Stick the prepared bacon or speck into each cut and place on an aluminum foil. Spray or brush some olive oil on top and season to your liking. Close the foil bringing the edges to the top. Place either just next to the burning wood or into the hot ash if you got lots of it. Bake for about 10-20 minutes depends on the size of the potatoes. Check in between. They are ready when the fork goes easily in. Enjoy!

You can also add some green onions into the potato.
