Easy Potato in Foil

Potato in foil is a great option for tasty and hearty dinner. It can be prepared not only outside, during barbecue, but also at home in the oven. There are many recipes for baked potato in foil, and each of them is tasty and original. Today I suggest baking the whole potatoes in foil, complementing them with a piquant refreshing sauce. Vegetables prepared in this way can be served as an independent dish or as a side dish for poultry, meat or fish. In addition to baked potatoes, I recommend preparing a delicious sour cream sauce with greenery, garlic and pickled cucumbers. It turns out a very tasty and appetizing dish, which will probably appeal to your family members. For the recipe, it is desirable to use young potato tubers of the same size so that all vegetables are cooked at the same time.
