Grilled Potato Packets

Potatoes require a little extra time on the grill, so remember to give these pouches first dibs on the flames. —Anna Bjornn, Rexburg, Idaho
  • Total Time
    Prep: 20 min. Grill: 45 min.
  • Makes
    8 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 pounds medium red potatoes (about 7), cut into wedges
  • 1/4 cup thinly sliced green onions
  • 6 slices ready-to-serve fully cooked bacon, chopped
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

Directions

  • In a large bowl, toss potatoes with green onions, bacon, salt and pepper. Place half of the mixture on a greased double thickness of heavy-duty foil (about 18 in. square); dot with 1 tablespoon butter. Fold foil over potato mixture and crimp edges to seal. Repeat to make a second packet.
  • Grill, covered, over medium heat 20-23 minutes on each side or until potatoes are tender. Remove from grill.
  • Open foil carefully to allow steam to escape. Sprinkle potatoes with cheese. Grill opened packets, covered, 3-5 minutes longer or until cheese is melted.
