  1. Build a campfire and allow the fire to burn until it has accumulated a bed of coals. Rake the coals into a flat bed on one side of the fire.
  2. Cut 2 lengths of heavy duty foil approximately 18 inches square, placing one on top of the other for strength. Spray top one with non-stick spray. Spread potatoes on foil leaving plenty of room to fold up later. Scatter the onion over potatoes; slice the margarine over the potatoes; layer the Parmesan, mozzarella, and Cheddar cheeses over the potatoes; season with salt and pepper. Bring opposite edges of foil together and seal.
  3. Place the packet directly onto your campfire and cook until the potatoes are soft, about 35 minutes.

I prebaked my potatoes before heading out for the great outdoors (left the potatoes whole until ready to assemble). Used butter vs margarine, added fresh minced garlic plus more cheddar and less mozzarella to the mix. Though I imagine any mix of cheese would be just as good. Placing them on your campfire grill imparts that wonderful smokey flavor that just can't be duplicated anywhere but under the stars camping..... Wonderful!



Perfect! Used 6 good size yukon gold potatoes and made 2 pouches. I used a gas grill low setting for 35 minutes turning the pouches every 5 minutes. My kids don't like onion so I substituted onion powder, but sliced onion would definatly be tasty here. Increased butter to 4 T. I skipped the mozzarella but increased the cheddar to 1 1/4 cups. The potatoes were moist, but crisp around the edges with molten cheese. Wow!



This is GREAT!!!!! I add some bell pepper and sometimes some little smokies and this becomes a great outdoors meal.
