This recipe makes a great complement to any meal. Potatoes are grilled in foil with cheese and bacon bits. This dish tastes great the next day when warmed up. Enjoy!

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat an outdoor grill for medium high heat and lightly oil grate.

  • Use either a 9x13 inch grill-safe baking dish OR a piece of foil large enough to hold all the ingredients. Layer with the potatoes, onions, pats of margarine, salt and ground black pepper. Sprinkle top with imitation bacon bits. Cover with foil and make sure you seal tightly so the margarine does not escape.

  • Grill over medium high heat for 45 to 60 minutes, or to desired doneness. Carefully open, arrange the cheese over all and allow a few minutes for the cheese to melt. Remove from grill and serve immediately.

These are easy simple and tasty. I actually baked them in the oven due to technical issues with our grill and they still turned out great. The cheese and bacon really add something to the dish. Make sure you spray your foil or all the cheese will stick and that is the best part. Read More

These were good but think they can be improved by adding garlic using grated sharp cheddar and real bacon. Read More

We loved this and i decided to try and make this while reducing the amount of potatoes in order to cut some of the carbs. So i decided to use half potatoes and half diced cabbage. Everything remained the same except i used real cheddar. This was delicious and still very filling with the cabbage added in. Will make it this way again. Read More

Made a modified version of this for a party and everyone loved it! I baked it in the oven at 375 for 45 minutes (taking the foil off the last 5 - 10 minutes to let the cheese brown a bit). I used red potatoes and left the skin on. I used cheddar cheese and layered a bit throughout the potatoes. I also used soy Bacon Bacon from Tastefully Simple instead of those imitation bacon bits. Lastly I skipped the margarine and I mixed a little skim milk and a can of cream of mushroom soup and poured it over the layers before adding the cheese and bacon bits. I felt this would make it a bit creamier and kind of gel everything together. I'm going to try the original grill version in the spring when we get the grill out again. Read More

These were good but I wasn't completely thrilled with the American cheese flavor. I think I would have liked it a bit more if there was another kind of cheese. I will make again but change up to suit our personal tastes. Thanks for the post. Read More

Awesome side dish for the Grill!!! Spring-like temps had us grilling out yesterday and we needed a side dish for brats/burgers salad and deviled eggs. This was it. Only things I did different--used 1/2 cup margarine and subbed shredded cheese for American slices. Will be using this frequently from now on.....Yummy! Thanks Jen this is a wonderful easy keeper.

Okay I made this super easy - used diced frozen hash browns pre-cooked bacon and pre-grated co-jack cheese. And it was still a 5 star recipe! I cooked them in a cast iron pan on the grill started them about 15 minutes before my steaks and they all finished together. Scrumptious! Read More
