MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 17, 2013

I make something similar to this but I don't cook the potatoes in a pouch. I use small red potatoes cut in half and tossed in olive oil, garlic and Italian seasoning. I place them cut side down on a foil lined baking pan and bake in a 350 degree oven until they are done and the cut side is crispy. I then add the other ingredients and wrap it in the foil until the cheese is melted.

I cooked them in the oven instead of BQ. They were great. Add some dill weed to add extra great flavor.

I have been making a similar recipe to this for years, and it is a favorite of ours. I don't use the cheese or bacon, and I spray cooking spray on the foil to keep from sticking, and only put 1teas. butter to flavor. I divide up into individual packets to help it cook quicker (about 1 1/2 potatoes each) and just use chopped regular onions. Always a big hit with family, but the foil can be messy.

This was great! I didn't have enough gas left in the grill :) so I put the packet in the oven at 400 degrees for the same amount of time. I also omitted the cheese to save calories - the potatoes were delicious on their own!
