A different twist to grilling potatoes. I'm sure that these can be done in the oven on 350° for about the same amount of time. Derived from a Betty Crocker cookbook.

  1. Heat BBQ.
  2. Place potatoes on a heavy piece of tin foil.

  5. Wrap foil securely around potatoes: pierce top of foil once or twice with a fork to vent steam.

I cooked the potatoes in the oven at 350* and they took forever to get tender.I believe the problem is my oven.We loved the potatoes and will make them again.I will try them on the grill next time.When I use my oven I will try 400* I didn't have smoked cheddar so I used smoked mozzarella,still very good.Will make sure I have the smoked cheddar on hand next time.Oh! I used the real bacon! Thanks for sharing Carmen:0)
