We like grilling because it's a no-fuss way to make a meal. This pleasing potato recipe is one we use often! The onion, cheddar cheese and Worscestershire sauce combine to make a super side dish for any grilled meat. Plus, cooking in the foil makes cleanup a breeze. —JoAnn Dettbarn, Brainerd, Minnesota

"To me these are epic fail. Tried these last year and either I had to many in the package or the fire was not hot enough but one would think that after 30min on the grill they would be done. Not so they were still raw even after 45 minutes and I had to finish them off in the oven. Won't be having these again"

"These were okay but I will probably just stick to my normal recipe next time. I have never used broth or any type of liquid in foil pack grilled potatoes before... All it seemed to do was turn the cheese into a watery mess."

"My boys and hubby really enjoyed this and my hubby has never enjoyed the traditional "scalloped potatoes" type of preparation! Like another reviewer, I made individual foil packets (4) to bake in the oven set on a cookie sheet--around 375 degrees for about an hour. I sliced the potatoes no larger than 1/8 inch and they came out tender but not mushy. Good flavor mixture! I will be making these again and will also try the grill directions sometime as well."

"to make things easier I made individual packets, one potato per person, and divided the seasoning. I also par cooked the potatoes in the microwave so they would cook along with our steak..YUM!"

"Baked in 400 degree oven for 70 minutes. Potatoeswere barely done and liquid was just pooled in bottom of pan. Maybe I did something wrong but just did not care force flavour. I did follow the recipe except I used a 9x9 foil pan, covered. Was the pan size my problem? Nope, just didn't like the flavour. Sorry."
