  • Ready In

  1. Preheat grill for medium-high heat.
  2. Coat one side of a piece of aluminum foil large enough to hold all the potatoes and vegetables with cooking spray. Place the potatoes, onion, and green bell pepper in the center of the foil, and season with salt and pepper to taste. Then place small pats of the butter or margarine over the vegetables.
  3. Carefully seal all the edges of the foil around the vegetables to form a packet. (Note: Double wrapping will help to prevent burning.)
  4. Place packet on the preheated grill, and grill for 20 minutes. Turn packet, and grill for 10 more minutes.
  5. Carefully open packet, check for tenderness with a fork. If tender, sprinkle the cheese over the vegetables and allow it to melt. Transfer to a platter, and serve with your main entree.


  • Partner tip: Reynolds® Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.

Great combo of flavors... very easy and quick. I baked in my oven instead of the grill for about the same amount of time. Yum!

Made as written. End results, they were good but no WOW factor for us. It is definitely an easy, no clean up required recipe, and would be good for a camping side dish.

OMG! These were delicious! The only changes that we made were that we put Lawrys seasoned salt on them, and threw cut up pieces of bacon in with it. Super yummy, thank you for sharing!
