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! :)

I have to admit I found this about 30 minutes before serving time, so I had to cheat (tossed taters with olive oil and onion powder and par-cooked in the microwave). Put into foil packets and used Mexican blend cheese and a slice of American cheese in each packet and Hormel bacon bits. It was delish, but I can't WAIT to try the real thing!!

These potatoes were so good! I did over cook them so they were stuck to the foil, so next time I will stick to the cooking time.
