My hubby was born and raised in the country. He’s a country boy at heart. One day we’re hoping to fulfill our dreams, buy some land, and lead a simpler life out in the country away from the hustle and bustle…but until then, we’re stuck here in the city and making the best of it! We live in a neighborhood where the houses are pretty much right on top of one another. So over the years I’ve done my best to clean up our yard and make it into our own little sanctuary. Building a garden box and planting a vegetable garden is one of the little things that we’ve done to bring a little country to our city life. This is my cute little kitchen garden! Isn’t it adorable?!? The fence panels are detachable so I can take them off and easily have access to the garden. It also keeps the wiener dogs out! I swear the second I remove one of those panels there’s a dachshund walking around in my garden! Every. Single. Time. This year we’ve planted green and yellow beans, 4 kinds of tomatoes, 2 kinds of peppers, 2 kinds of eggplant, cucumbers, basil, sage, dill, rosemary, thyme, oregano, and chives. Notice how I saved the best for last! We get to use some of those chives in this next recipe, Cheesy Grilled Potatoes!!!
This recipe sure is one of our absolute favorites in the summertime! Of course it involves the grill! It pairs well with just about any summer meal. Toss some meat on the grill alongside Cheesy Grilled Potatoes, add a green veggie or salad, and you have yourself a nice little meal, all without even turning on the stove! I mean c’mon! Isn’t getting outside what summer is all about???
The above photo was taken in June. And here we are now in July! Can you believe I just weeded and thinned out those tomatoes?!? Things are looking good this year!
Here’s all you’ll need: Red potatoes, onions, bacon, pizza blend cheese (it’s a mix of mozzarella and cheddar! Score!), parmesan cheese, butter, chives, seasoned salt and pepper.
Wash and dry potatoes. Then dice them into 1 inch cubes.
In a large bowl, combine potatoes, onions, parmesan cheese, chives, seasoned salt, and pepper. If you don’t have fresh chives on hand, you can always use freeze dried chives. I’ve made the recipe both ways and it always comes out delicious!
Fold all the ingredients together until mixed well. Shake those potatoes around!
Roll out a sheet of aluminum foil, about 12-15 inches long. Spray with cooking spray.
Place potatoes in the center of the foil. Heavy duty aluminum foil works best! We always use the heavy duty stuff for anything grill related.
Dot with butter. They don’t look too impressive now, but wait til the end!! The cheese and bacon are the big finish !!
Cover with another sheet of foil sprayed with cooking spray. Fold the edges of the foil to form a packet. Be sure to seal up all the edges nice and tight! I love that foil packets mean less dishes!! Maybe that’s why Cheesy Grilled Potatoes were an instant hit……or maybe it was the cheese!
Place foil packet on the grill over medium heat for about 13-15 minutes per side or until potatoes or tender. That’s 26-30 minutes total. Don’t forget to flip the packet over halfway through! Keep the grill covered throughout cooking.
With oven mitts or heat safe gloves, carefully unfold the edges of the foil packet. Watch out for hot steam as you open the packet! Sprinkle on the bacon (use our no mess bacon technique found here!) and cheeses. Reseal foil packet and grill 3-5 minutes longer until cheese is melted. It won’t take long since the potatoes are already piping hot! I can see the deliciousness starting to come together!!
Open foil carefully to allow steam to escape. Serve this beautiful dish right on the aluminum foil and watch them disappear!! This is a great recipe to take camping as well. Just pre cook the bacon or bring along some bacon bits! Sounds like my kind of camping!!
Is there any better way to serve potatoes other than covering them in cheese and bacon??? I don’t think so! SOOOO good!! I told you they would be glorious!! ((BIG FINISH!! BIG FINISH!!)) If you love foil packet recipes then you’ve gotta try our Foil Packet Italian Veggies!
