    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    I have been making these for years, it's a family favorite! all ingredients are wrapped in a foil pouch then grilled for about 30-40 minutes, add in some cooked cubed ham for a complete meal, you could even make the packets well in advance then refrigerate until ready to grill :) Make certain to use only large heavy-duty foil for this and spray the inside of the foil generously!

    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Divide the sliced potatoes and onions equally between two pieces (about 18-inches each) heavy-duty foil, that has been sprayed liberally with cooking spray.
    2. 2
      Sprinkle with seasoning salt, pepper and garlic powder; tossing lightly with hands to coat with seasonings.
    3. 3
      In a bowl combine grated cheddar mozzarella and Parmesan cheese; divide and sprinkle over the potatoes and onions.
    4. 4
      Divide/top with bacon and butter cubes.
    5. 5
      Bring opposite ends of the foil together over filling and fold down several times.
    6. 6
      Fold unsealed ends toward filling and crimp tightly (making a sealed packet, you may poke a small hole on top of the packet to let steam escape).
    7. 7
      At this point to you may refrigerate for a few hours until ready to grill.
    8. 8
      Place on grill over medium heat for about 35-40 minutes or until potatoes are fork-tender.
    9. 9
      Remove from grill, carefully open the packets (be careful these packets have lots of steam inside, so open with care!) and sprinkle with more grated cheese.

      Great recipe. Didn't change a thing in the ingredients and it came out awesome. Instead of foil wrapping, I use 2 foil containers clipped together (top & bottom, with office foldback clips). I find them handier to flip during cooking and easier to check when packets are fully cooked.

      Loved this recipe. I used a tin foil pan and stirred occasionaly. The second time when camping I used canned potatoes . It worked great, no one guessed that I had used canned potatoes. Has become a favorite recipe. Thanks Kittencal.

      Great potatoes Kittencal! I made this as listed except I used halved baby potatoes for most of the recipe. With all of the cheese and bacon, I would skip the butter next time. Made for Kittencal's Grilling Game. Thanks Kittencal! :)
