"I made these in the oven on a 9x13 pan (sprayed with cooking oil) instead of putting them on the grill. I doubled the recipe, covered them with foil and baked at 350 for about 40 minutes. Delicious!! There weren't any leftovers. My new favorite potato! And it was very easy to make."

"My new Weber Spirit E-210 propane grill had its maiden voyage today with this recipe along with the Asian Green Beans recipe on this site and two racks of baby back ribs. I did the packet with the potatoes (I halved the recipe) for 18 minutes on one side, then added the packet with the green beans and flipped the potato packet and did them for another 18 minutes, then removed them to a large rimmed cookie sheet and kept them warm in a 250 degree oven after adding the bacon and shredded cheese to the potatoes. Then I did the pre-cooked baby back ribs on the grill, browning them and brushing them with the sauce. It was all wonderful. I would highly recommend this recipe. I used a bag of the small Yukon Gold potatoes, sliced, and substituted quite a lot of chopped scallions for the chopped onion and chives."

"This is an awesome recipe camping or at home! Takes a lot longer than 20 or 30 minutes on a campfire (and I had the potatoes cut smaller than 1-inch cubes). Par cook the potatoes first then a maybe a 1/2 hour would work. Regardless, great tasting potato dish."

"we enjoy these potatoes while camping but found that it can be quite messy to use foil and now take little foil pans to do them in. So much easier to handle on the grill or campfire and easier to serve."

"These potatoes are delicious!! I was in a rush and didn't have a BBQ, so I microwaved the cut potatoes until tender (10-15 minutes), then added the onion, parm, butter, salt & pepper, microwaved a few minutes more, and then added the bacon and cheese and melted in the oven at 400."

"These were very good! Nice and cheesy. I think they would go over very well at a barbecue and you could easily make several packets of you had a big crowd."

"What an awesome dish! My whole family loved it! The only things I did differently was make up 3 packets, because my aluminum foil was too narrow and also, we put in some water half way thru the cooking on the grill, so that they wouldn't burn. easy clean up, too!"
