- 2-1/2 pounds potatoes (about 3 large), peeled and cut into 1/4-inch slices
- 1 medium onion, finely chopped
- 5 bacon strips, cooked and crumbled
- 1/4 cup butter, melted
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon pepper
- 6 slices process American cheese
- Sour cream, optional
- Prepare campfire or grill for medium heat. In a large bowl, toss potatoes with onion, bacon, butter, salt and pepper. Place on a large piece of greased heavy-duty foil (about 36x12-in. rectangle). Fold foil around potatoes, sealing tightly.
- Cook on campfire or in covered grill until potatoes are tender, about 15 minutes per side. Open foil carefully to allow steam to escape; place cheese over potatoes. Cook until cheese is melted, 1-2 minutes. If desired, serve with sour cream. Yield: 8 servings.
Reviews forCheese-Topped Potatoes in Foil
"These potatoes have a great flavor, I think the bacon is the reason I enjoyed them so much. I replaced the American cheese with shredded cheddar cheese. I baked mine in a cast iron skillet covered with foil in the oven. I also decided not to slice the potatoes."
"This recipe is fantastic and definitely a new favorite! I partially precooked the potato mixture in the microwave (16 minutes, stirring after every 4 minutes) and then divided it between two grilling bags. We finished cooking the potatoes on the grill. (Partially cooking them allowed for the potatoes and the chicken we were also grilling to finish at the same time.) The flavor was outstanding and I know we'll be making this recipe often!"
"These were amazing and so simple to put together! I forgot the bacon but they were still great without it and my whole family loved them."
