Char-grilled potatoes and onions

Ingredients for 4 people:

Patate e cipolle alla brace
  • 4 potatoes of about 200 grs
  • 4 medium-sized onions
  • extra virgin olive oil
  • salt
  • pepper


Thoroughly rinse potatoes and peel onions cutting off the first dried layers. Wrap every single potato and onion in silver foil and place in your fireplace. Prepare a thin layer of cinder, then cover everything with charcoal fire. After 35-40 minutes check the cooking point by piercing them with a toothpick; when you manage to reach the center, they are perfectly cooked. Divide potatoes in two equal parts cut on the longer side and season (onions too) with a drizzle of oil, salt and pepper.
