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

  • 1 package (28 ounces) frozen O'Brien potatoes, thawed
  • 1-1/4 cups shredded cheddar cheese, divided
  • 8 bacon strips, cooked and chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • hard-boiled large eggs and pico de gallo, optional


  1. Prepare campfire or grill for medium-high heat. Toss potatoes with 3/4 cup cheese, bacon, salt and pepper.
  2. Divide mixture among four 18x12-in. pieces of heavy-duty nonstick foil, placing food on dull side of foil. Fold foil around potato mixture, sealing tightly.
  3. Place packets over campfire or grill; cook 6-9 minutes on each side or until potatoes are tender. Open packets carefully to allow steam to escape; sprinkle with remaining cheese. If desired, serve with eggs and pico de gallo.
