I found the technique for grilling ham, potatoes and cheese in foil and changed the recipe for our tastes. It’s a dandy way to use leftover ham. —Molly Bishop, McClure, Pennsylvania

  • 1-1/2 pounds medium red potatoes, halved and thinly sliced
  • 1 medium green pepper, chopped
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 cups cubed deli ham
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese


  1. In a large bowl, toss potatoes with green pepper, onion and pepper; place in center of a greased 24x18-in. piece of heavy-duty foil. Fold foil around vegetables and crimp edges to seal.
  2. Grill, covered, over medium heat 15-20 minutes or until potatoes are tender. Remove from grill. Open foil carefully to allow steam to escape. Add ham; sprinkle with cheese. Grill opened packet, covered, 2-4 minutes longer or until cheese is melted.
