  • 3 large russet potatoes scrubbed, peeled, and diced into 1 inch cubes
  • 1 medium onion chopped
  • 3 tbsp grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 tbsp chives minced
  • 1/2 tsp seasoning salt or plain salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1/2 cooked crumbled bacon, or 1/2 cup cooked, diced ham
  • 1/2 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese


  • In a large bowl, combine the first six ingredients.
  • Transfer contents to a double thickness of greased, heavy-duty aluminum foil (about 18 inches square).
  • Dot with butter.
  • Fold foil around potato mixture and seal tightly.
  • Grill, covered, over medium heat for 15-18 minutes on each side or until potatoes are tender.
  • Carefully (very carefully because the escaping steam can burn you) open the foil packet.
  • Sprinkle the bacon, or ham, and cheeses over the potato mixture.
  • Reseal and grill for 3-5 minutes longer or until cheese is melted.
  • Carefully open and let all steam escape.
  • Serve.
