Potato Bundles

As promised, I'm providing you the recipe for those potato bundles you saw paired with my flank steak I made a while back. I originally saw these posted by Melissa, but, as you'll be able to tell, she originally got them from Pioneer Woman, who is coming out with a cookbook! Melissa slightly, not a lot, changed it from Pioneer Woman, and I think I changed it even more. I was really just looking for something that could be created from things we had in the kitchen :)

Here's what I did to adjust this for just the 2 of us:

Potato Bundles
Serves 2
2 whole Red Potatoes, diced small (1 per person)
1/4 to 1/3 of a Red Onion, diced small
2 Tbsp Butter (1 per bundle)
Splash of Heavy Cream for each bundle
Kosher Salt To Taste
Paprika To Taste
Freshly Ground Black Pepper, To Taste
1/2 teaspoon of your preferred herb (I think we used cilantro)

Pile potatoes and onions on a square of foil. Add tablespoons butter to each foil packet. Splash on cream. Then sprinkle on salt, paprika, and black pepper. Sprinkle minced parsley over the top.
Wrap bundles tightly and bake at 375 degrees for 30 minutes, or until extremely tender. Serve bundles right on the dinner plate.

These were delicious and a 'man-favorite!' Super easy and tasty.


  1. I'm actually making these tonight!! I found mine on Pioneer Woman..I sure hope mine turn out looking as good as yours do!

  2. Delicious! I served these tonight with low-country smothered pork chops. My husband loved that the potatoes were so tender and moist, a nice change from your average oven-roasted potato. Thanks for the recipe!
