  2. Grill, covered, over medium heat 20-23 minutes on each side or until potatoes are tender. Remove from grill.
  3. Open foil carefully to allow steam to escape. Sprinkle potatoes with cheese. Grill opened packets, covered, 3-5 minutes longer or until cheese is melted. Yield: 8 servings.

"I make packets on the grill with either chicken breast or kielbasa, throw in some carrots, baby reds, onions, green peppers, etc., along with 3-4 ice cubes for moisture. It usually takes about 1.5 hours on my charcoal grill. Yummy to sprinkle with cheese."

"A favorite in our house. I cube the potatoes instead of wedges, cooks faster and easier for kids to eat."

"Really easy and good. I made on the grill and in the oven. Both ways are good."

"These potatoes were wonderful! I made a small batch for the two of us and parboiled the potatoes so we wouldn't have to grill them quite so long. This is definitely a "keeper" recipe and one that we'll be making often!"

"These were so good. I made a smaller batch and used regular onions instead of green ones. We will be making these often."
