Dining by the campfire? This easy packet of potatoes, bacon and cheese makes a terrific hash. We like to serve it with eggs and fresh pico de gallo. —Gina Nistico, Milwaukee, Wisconsin

Ingredients

  • 1 package (28 ounces) frozen O'Brien potatoes, thawed

Directions

Prepare campfire or grill for medium-high heat. Toss potatoes with 3/4 cup cheese, bacon, salt and pepper.

"These were pretty good. The only change I made was the method in cooking which was to put them in a 350 degree oven for 35 minutes. I served cheesy scrambled eggs alongside them. My grandson loved this recipe and ate all of his food. That is a miracle!"

"when a recipe says with pico and there is no recipe for the pico - was totally unfair? so - tomatoes, jalopeno peppers, (use green bell peppers in place of jalopenos - less heat - but still gr8 taste) onions, lime juice and salt - mix 2gether and chill! I did do some changes to fit n2 my low sodium diet - I didn't add the salt, I used turkey bacon and i peeled and diced potatoes - cooked on stove top and served with scrambled eggs and pico on the side."

"I did not follow the recipe exactly. The bag of hashbrowns I found was 32 oz. I added more cheese than called for but did not sprinkle with cheese at the end. I also added some chopped onion (because I really like onions in potatoes) and added a little butter. These were fantastic. Very versatile and you can make adjustments/substitutions based on your tastes. Next time I would double the amount of bacon. :)"
