Potato Bundles

The Pioneer Woman's potato bundles are so easy to assemble and fun to make. A parcel of potatoes, onions, butter,sprinkle of paprika, ground pepper and Cream is baked in sealed foil packets in the oven. These potatoes are crispy on the outside and soft and tender from inside. Caramelized onions and butter makes these potatoes so delicious.


  • 2 Large Potatoes ( use Russets potatoes)
  • 1 Large red onion or white onion
  • 2 Tablespoons cold unsalted butter
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Paprika
  • 1/2 Teaspoon mixed dried herbs(thyme, rosemary and oregano)
  • Salt as required
  • 2 Tablespoons heavy cream
  • freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons chopped cilantro or parsley 


1. Wash potatoes and dice them into cubes/ chunks. Start by cutting the potato into two lengthwise. Then slice each halves. Cut potato slices into dices /cubes


2. Peel remove onions and cut them into chunks
3. You need foil sheets to make bundles. Cut the foils into squares. Place some potatoes in the middle of the foil. I made 3 parcels out of 2 large potatoes. Each potato parcel was like huge serving. You can make 4 parcels if you want small servings
4. Throw some onions to the foil

5. Now place about 1/2 tablespoon of butter in each parcel
6. Sprinkle paprika, dried herbs, salt

7. Drizzle heavy cream ( about 1/2 tablespoons in each parcel)

8. Finally sprinkle chopped parsley or cilantro

9. Sprinkle freshly ground black pepper as required
10. Roll up the foil packages and seal all sides

11. Repeat step numbers 3 to 10 and make remaining potato parcels
12. Place the prepared foils in a baking tray and bake at 180 C for 25 minutes
13. Then increase the oven temperature to 200C and bake for 15 minutes more.
14. Finally turn the oven to broiler mode and broil for a minute
15. Potato parcels are ready to be served. To serve potato parcels, place one foil packet in each dinner plate and let everyone open them up
