Clarion County Recipe of the Day: Grilled Potato Packets

Saturday, May 25, 2019 @ 12:05 AM

Posted by J.C. Taggart

Here’s an excellent side dish for your Memorial Day barbecue!

Grilled Potato Packets


7 medium red potatoes, cut into wedges
1/4 cup thinly sliced green onions
6 slices ready-to-serve fully cooked bacon, chopped
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
2 tablespoons butter
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese


~In a large bowl, toss potatoes with green onions, bacon, salt, and pepper. Place half of the mixture on a greased double thickness of heavy-duty foil (about 18 in. square); dot with one tablespoon butter. Fold foil over potato mixture and crimp edges to seal. Repeat to make a second packet.

~Grill, covered, over medium heat 20 to 23 minutes on each side or until potatoes are tender. Remove from grill.

~Open foil carefully to allow steam to escape. Sprinkle potatoes with cheese. Grill opened packets, covered, three to five minutes longer or until cheese is melted.
