Potato Bundles

The Pioneer Woman has done it again. When I saw these on her website, I knew I had to make them. I love potatoes in so many forms....and this was a new one. I tried them out on guests over the weekend....and after everyone got done joking about what the "surprise" in the foil on their plates could possibly be, there was nothing but raves and compliments. I even made them again this week to serve with beans and ham and cornbread (as pictured above).

Incredibly delicious. The recipe doesn't list specific amounts, as you can just eyeball everything. For 6 potatoes, I used half an onion, but more would certainly be fine.


Russet potatoes, scrubbed and cut into chunks
Yellow or white onion, cut into chunks
Butter (regular, salted)
Heavy cream
Kosher salt
Freshly ground black pepper
2 tablespoons minced parsley or a couple teaspoons of dried parsley

Pile one potato and some chunks of onion on a square of foil. Add 1 tablespoon butter (cut into small pieces), splash on some cream, then sprinkle on salt, paprika, black pepper, and parsley. Wrap bundle tightly and repeat with remaining potatoes. Put all the bundles on a baking sheet with rims and bake at 375 degrees for 45 minutes, or until extremely tender.
Serve foil bundles right on the plate!

Unbaked bundles...waiting to be wrapped up

Fresh out of the oven, tender and bursting with flavor.
