It doesn't get much easier than this. I just tossed the packet on the grill and forgot it for 40 minutes. When we put the meat on the grill I added cheese and bacon and moved the packet to the side. When the meat was done so were the potatoes. There were no leftovers. Next time I will make a much larger batch. They were very good. Easy and good. Still my favorite combination.

These were a great alternative to mashed or baked potatoes. To save a few calories, I sprayed the foil with Pam rather than coating with butter. Next time, I think I will eliminate all butter, and mix the potatoes, onions, cheese, salt, pepper & paprika in a bowl before cooking to spread the flavor throughout . . . sprinkling them on top kept the flavor to the top layer only. I made these with French Oriental Salmon Grill (recipe #4024) and sauteed zucchini & mushrooms. Yummy!
