  • Coat one side of a piece of aluminum foil large enough to hold all the potatoes and vegetables with cooking spray. Place the potatoes, onion, and green bell pepper in the center of the foil, and season with salt and pepper to taste. Then place small pats of the butter or margarine over the vegetables.

  • Carefully seal all the edges of the foil around the vegetables to form a packet. (Note: Double wrapping will help to prevent burning.)

  • Place packet on the preheated grill, and grill for 20 minutes. Turn packet, and grill for 10 more minutes.

  • Carefully open packet, check for tenderness with a fork. If tender, sprinkle the cheese over the vegetables and allow it to melt. Transfer to a platter, and serve with your main entree.

Partner Tip

Reynolds® Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.

These potatoes are great whether you cook them in tin foil on the grill or in a dish in the oven. Sometimes I don't even top them with cheese and they are still wonderful. I also add garlic and onion powder to the recipe.

Great combo of flavors... very easy and quick. I baked in my oven instead of the grill for about the same amount of time. Yum!

These add up to their name they are easy and cheesy. I baked in the oven but other than that followed the recipe and they were a big hit. I will make again for sure.

This is such an easy recipe and a great grilling alternative! Try it instead of mashed potatoes with your steak and if you're trying to go low-fat substitute a yogurt based spread and skim cheese. Still very flavorful with the salt/pepper and onions. Very quick and cooks just as advertised in the time allotted - perfectly tender potatoes!

OMG! These were delicious! The only changes that we made were that we put Lawrys seasoned salt on them and threw cut up pieces of bacon in with it. Super yummy thank you for sharing!

HOLY COW! These are delicious! My new favorite grilling recipe! I basically made this recipe as stated but inadvertantly some slight things made it better! I had some seasoned onions from precooking my chicken for the grill used them.(Chipotle pepper and garlic flavored)I also used bacon grease to lube the foil instead of spray and I think that added flavor too! Try this really easy and NO CLEAN-UP!

I have used this recipe in the past. I have found it is best to slice the potatoes thin. When they are done I simply add the cheese close up the foil and when the cheese is melted transfer to a dish this is excellent with grilled skinless boneless chicken breasts basted with garlic butter on the grill. The recipe I used was about 15 years ago and I still use it today. I live alone and its an easy meal to make for one while its cooking I clean up any mess in the kitchen fix me a salad and when its done eat the potatoes and chicken.
