You can mash ’em, fry them, and bake ’em! From scalloped potatoes, to breakfast hash browns, and make sweet potato pie! Potatoes are arguably the most versatile side dish!

Today is National Potato Day, a day to celebrate everything awesome about the starchy vegetable.

Here’s a nice potato recipe you can cook up while camping this long-weekend!

Here’s What You’ll Need

2 Yukon Gold potatoes, quartered
2 tbsp.extra-virgin olive oil
1 tsp.garlic powder
1 tsp.dried oregano
Kosher salt
Freshly ground black pepper
2 c.shredded mozzarella
1 c.freshly grated Parmesan
Chopped fresh parsley, for garnish
Crushed red pepper flakes, for garnish

Here’s How To Whip ’em Up!

Preheat grill to medium-high, or preheat the oven to 425º. Cut 4 large pieces of foil about 10″ long. In a large bowl, toss potatoes with olive oil, garlic powder, and oregano and season with salt and pepper.

Divide potatoes between foil pieces, then fold the foil packets crosswise to completely cover the potatoes. Roll the top and bottom edges to seal them closed. Place foil packets on the grill and cook until just cooked through, 10 to 15 minutes. (Or transfer to the oven and bake about 15 minutes.)

Unwrap the foil packets and sprinkle mozzarella and Parmesan on top of the potatoes. Fold foil back over the potatoes and cook until cheese is melty, about 3 to 5 minutes.Top with parsley and red pepper flakes and serve warm.

They should look like this!
