MARSHFIELD, WI (OnFocus) – Potatoes, bacon and cheese make this simple, grilled side dish a must-have for your upcoming backyard barbecues and camping trips. Customize these Cheesy Grilled Potatoes with Bacon by serving with a side of ranch, ketchup, hot sauce or plain Greek yogurt.


  • 14 new potatoes, thinly sliced
  • Salt, to taste
  • Black pepper, to taste
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 4 slices Festival Bacon, cooked and crumbled
  • 2 green onions, sliced


  1. Place potatoes on a large microwave-safe plate and cook on high for 3-4 minutes until somewhat tender. Allow to cool.
  2. Preheat the grill to medium heat.
  3. Lay two large sheets of aluminum foil together and spray with cooking spray. Use a grill pan or cast iron skillet if you prefer.
  4. Place one single layer of potatoes on top. Season with salt and pepper. Top with ⅓ cheese and ⅓ bacon.
  5. Repeat layers two more times until all potatoes, cheese and bacon are used. Fold up the sides of the foil and pinch the top closed. If using a grill pan or cast iron skillet, cover with a sheet of aluminum foil.
  6. Place directly on heat, cover grill and cook for 10-20 minutes, until potatoes are tender. Open foil and sprinkle with green onions. Serve immediately.
