Step-by-Step Preparation Guide

1. Choosing the Right Potatoes: Go for large, starchy potatoes like Sebago. They’re perfect for baking and hold their shape well.

  • Tip: Scrub potatoes thoroughly before cooking to remove any dirt.

2. Preparing the Potatoes:

  • Baking: Bake potatoes until soft (45 minutes to an hour), either in a camp oven or in the campfire coals (wrapped in foil).
  • Scooping: Cut potatoes in half and scoop out the insides, leaving a small border to maintain the shape.

3. Mixing the Fillings: Combine the scooped potato insides with your chosen ingredients.

  • Tip: Pre-cook ingredients like bacon, sausage, or vegetables for quicker campfire cooking.

4. Stuffing the Potatoes: Fill the potato skins with the mixture.

  • Tip: Overfill slightly to ensure a hearty meal.

5. Wrapping and Cooking: Wrap each stuffed potato tightly in foil. Place on a grill or directly in the campfire coals, turning occasionally, until heated through (about 15-20 minutes).

  • Tip: Check one potato for doneness before serving the rest.
