Grilled Smoky Potato Cheddar Packs

Posted by   + Show Post


If you're looking for an excuse to crank up the barbeque a little ahead of schedule, try out this recipe I just found for grilled smoky cheddar potato packs. This recipe is not only tasty, but super easy and virtually mess free. The meal comes in its own little pouch, which keeps clean up to a minimum.


4 medium potatoes, cut into 1-inch chunks

1/2 teaspoon salt

2 tablespoons butter or margarine

1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese (4 ounces)

2 tablespoons Betty Crocker® Bac~Os® bacon flavor chips

2 medium green onions, sliced (2 tablespoons)

 

  1. Heat coals or gas grill for direct heat. Place potatoes on 30x18-inch piece of heavy-duty foil. Sprinkle with salt. Dot with butter. Sprinkle with cheese and bacon chips.
  2. Wrap foil securely around potatoes; pierce top of foil once or twice with fork to vent steam. Cover and grill foil packet, seam side up, 4 to 6 inches from medium heat 45 to 60 minutes or until potatoes are tender. Sprinkle with onions.

Makes 4 servings


Moms, what else would you add to this recipe?

MMMM garlic. I would definitely add garlic, maybe sour cream after it's cooked. I love sour cream on my potatoes.
