I missed the part about finishing with a layer of potato so the cheese stuck to the foil and almost burnt. Forty minutes was just too long or my heat was too high. Even with all my mistakes I could tell the flavor is great and the method couldn't be simpler. I used regular, not processed, cheddar cheese. Next time these will be perfect.
