Cheese Potato Packet Recipe

Cheese Potato Packet Recipe

My dad has made these easy and delicious potatoes since I was little. The bacon adds to the smoky, grilled taste. —Shannon Talmage, Alexandria, Indiana
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 30 min. YIELD:2 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 medium potatoes, sliced
  • 3 tablespoons water
  • 2 bacon strips, diced
  • 1 small onion, thinly sliced
  • 4 ounces process cheese (Velveeta), cubed
  • 3 tablespoons butter, cubed

Directions

  • 1. Place potatoes and water in a microwave-safe bowl. Cover and microwave on high for 2-3 minutes or until almost tender. Meanwhile, in a small skillet, cook bacon over medium heat until partially cooked but not crisp. Remove to paper towels to drain.
  • 2. Drain potatoes. On a double thickness of greased heavy-duty foil (about 18 in. square), layer half of the potatoes, bacon, onion, cheese and butter. Repeat layers.
  • 3. Fold foil around potato mixture and seal tightly. Grill, covered, over medium heat for 12-14 minutes or until potatoes are tender and cheese is melted. Carefully remove foil to allow steam to escape. Yield: 2 servings.
