Potatoes (Grill Style)

I stumbled onto a recipe for potatoes (on the grill) from none other than, well, you know...

That website that starts with a 'P' and rhymes with 'interest'.
That website that can suck you in and give you a neck crick and back pain in no time.
Yeah, that one!

So, if you're about to get on to look for a great side to go with your grilled dinner for this weekend, let me save you the pain and the time. I found a perfect one :)

Cheesy Potatoes on the Grill

Here's What You'll Need:
4-5 potatoes, peeled and cut into 1-inch cubes
1 medium onion, chopped
4 Tb. grated Parmesan cheese
1 Tb. salt
Pepper to taste
4 Tb. butter
5-6 slices of bacon, cooked and crumbled
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

Here's How:
1. In a large bowl, combine potatoes, onion, Parmesan cheese, salt and pepper.

2. Transfer to greased foil pieces. I used 2 foil pieces but you could do more, making individual pockets. (I was going to do that but ran out of foil.)
3. Dot potatoes with butter. And fold foil around potato mixture, making a pocket. Grill, covered, on medium heat for 20-25 minutes or until potatoes are tender.

4. Carefully open pockets and sprinkle bacon and cheeses over potatoes. Close foil and continue to grill until cheeses are melted.

The best part is what you can't see... the crispy (slightly burnt) bottoms of the potatoes.
The original recipe said to flip your foil pockets half way through cooking.
But obviously, I wanted some crunch so we did the no-turn style!
