  1. Build a campfire and allow the fire to burn until it has accumulated a bed of coals. Rake the coals into a flat bed on one side of the fire.
  2. Cut 2 lengths of heavy duty foil approximately 18 inches square, placing one on top of the other for strength. Spray top one with non-stick spray. Spread potatoes on foil leaving plenty of room to fold up later. Scatter the onion over potatoes; slice the margarine over the potatoes; layer the Parmesan, mozzarella, and Cheddar cheeses over the potatoes; season with salt and pepper. Bring opposite edges of foil together and seal.
  3. Place the packet directly onto your campfire and cook until the potatoes are soft, about 35 minutes.

This is GREAT!!!!! I add some bell pepper and sometimes some little smokies and this becomes a great outdoors meal.

Perfect! Used 6 good size yukon gold potatoes and made 2 pouches. I used a gas grill low setting for 35 minutes turning the pouches every 5 minutes. My kids don't like onion so I substituted on...

Yum! I added a couple slices of crumbled up bacon left over from breakfast, didn't have any leftovers!

We make these often when camping. Followed this recipe pretty much except had no Mozzarella cheese. Different potatoes take different times. We had Idaho and they take a good hour to cook well e...
