TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Grill: 70 min. YIELD:16 servings

Ingredients

  • 5 pounds potatoes (about 6 large), peeled and thinly sliced
  • 3 cups (12 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 1/4 cup butter, cubed
  • 6 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 teaspoons onion salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 cup milk

Directions

  • 1. Prepare grill or campfire for low heat, using 20-24 charcoal briquettes or large wood chips.
  • 2. Line a Dutch oven with heavy-duty aluminum foil; add half of the potatoes. Top with 1-1/2 cups cheese, onion, butter, garlic, onion salt, salt and pepper. Top with remaining potatoes and cheese. Pour milk over the top.
  • 3. Cover Dutch oven. When briquettes or wood chips are covered with white ash, place Dutch oven directly on top of 10 of them. Using long-handled tongs, place remaining briquettes on pan cover.
  • 4. Cook for 70-80 minutes or until bubbly and potatoes are tender. To check for doneness, use the tongs to carefully lift the cover. Yield: 16 servings (3/4 cup each).
