I have been looking for a grill potato recipe that was just right for a long time. I've tried many that were great, but it was never what I wanted. Then the solution came to me - make up my own! It worked perfectly, and my husband and I enjoy these on a weekly basis. I have never actually measured the ingredients, so my recipe may be a little vague. But that's the beauty of Zaar, isn't it? You're all capable of making this one - no problem.

I've made these twice, and they are simply delicious. The second time, I tried using the bacon that comes partially cooked- and it made a nice difference. There was less grease, and the bacon was nice & crunchy. Thank you for posting this- we love it!!

A friend made these potatoes and brought them over a few weeks ago for our cookout and I had to have the recipe. I knew we were getting low on propane so I actually baked them in the oven. I chopped the potatoes, mixed with the broth and microwaved for 5 minutes before placing in a metal pan sprayed with non cooking spray. I then sprinkled on the seasonings. I cooked the bacon until about 1/2 way done, poured the bacon and grease over the potatoes and then topped w/ thin little pats of butter but less than 1/4 cup. After 20 minutes on 375 I took the foil off, turned the oven up to 425 for maybe 10 minutes to crisp them up a little more. I added the cheddar and onions as soon as I pulled them out of the oven and then added a little spoonful of Litehouse ranch dressing to my helping. YUM! These were a little greasy but so flavorful and good...I will definitely make again. Thanks!
