Three-Cheese Potatoes Recipe

With its bacon and cheese flair, this side dish makes a welcome addition to barbecues. My husband and I love these potatoes. —Cheryl Hille, Askum, Illinois
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Grill: 35 min. YIELD:4-6 servings


  • 3 large potatoes, peeled and cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 3 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 tablespoon minced chives
  • 1/2 teaspoon seasoned salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 cup crumbled cooked Jones Dairy Farm Dry-Aged Bacon
  • 1/2 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese


  • 1. In a large bowl, combine the first six ingredients. Transfer to a double thickness of greased heavy-duty foil (about 18 in. square). Dot with butter.
  • 2. Fold foil around potato mixture and seal tightly. Grill, covered, over medium heat for 15-18 minutes on each side or until potatoes are tender.

"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."

"Skipped the Parmesan and the Chives and only two cheeses. I didn't count the potatoes... didn't measure a thing.... put it all in a cast iron frying pan and put on grill. Covered with tin foil. Knowing that it may burn I waited for the cheese to put on at the end. When potatoes were done I put on cheese covered and waited for it to melt off the grill. Uncovered and stirred once during grilling."

The only thing I did different, was it added crushed garlic and seasoning salt and it was fabulous! I did microwave the diced potatoes, onions and garlic for about 3 minutes before I put them in the foil as some reviews suggested. This will be a favorite camping recipe from here on out!

"I saw another recipe that used the slow cooker instead of a grill, so I mistakenly used this method. I would probably make it in the oven (or grill) instead of the slow cooker next time. It just had that "slow cooker taste" that my husband and I don't care for.

I followed the recipe exactly, and even with "slow cooker taste" these were really good."

"Love these! I do use the oven rather than a grill. Making it again tonight to go with oven baked chicken. I followed the suggestion of others and pre-cooked my potatoes and onion in the microwave for a few minutes first. Nice thing about these is you can add or delete just about everything (except the potatoes ) and it still comes out delicious!"

We had two cheese potatoes as I only had parmesan and Monterey Jack cheeses and it was still great. On our grill they started to get too brown on the bottom so I trippled up a piece of heavy duty foil to set the packet on. Perfect flavors!"
