Heavy Duty Foil



Preheat oven to 400°F. Tear off an 18x18-inch piece of Reynolds Wrap® Heavy Duty Aluminum Foil set aside. In a small bowl, combine butter, 2 tablespoons thyme, shallots, and lemon zest.

Place 2 ice cubes in the center of the foil. Add sliced potatoes and leek to center of foil, sprinkle with salt and pepper, and dot with butter mixture. Bring up sides of foil over potatoes fold down two times. Double-fold both ends of foil to seal packet, leaving room for heat circulation. Place packet on a baking sheet with 1-inch sides.

Bake 40 to 45 minutes, or until potatoes are tender. Transfer to a serving plate. Open packet carefully top with shredded cheese and remaining 1 tablespoon thyme.
