  • Havarti

  • Parmesan


  • 1 pound Yukon Gold potatoes (about 2 medium), sliced 1/4-inch thick

  • Salt and pepper

  • 4 ounces Havarti cheese, shredded (1 cup)

  • 1 ounce Parmesan cheese, grated (1/3 cup)

  • 3 bacon strips, cooked and crumbled

  • 1 teaspoon minced fresh rosemary


  1. Place half of the potatoes in a single layer onto a greased piece of double thickness aluminum foil, about 16 x 12-inches. Season with salt and pepper. Sprinkle with half of the havarti, parmesan, bacon and rosemary. Repeat layers. Fold foil into a packet and seal tightly. 

  2. Grill, covered, over medium-high heat for 25-30 minutes or until potatoes are tender. Remove foil packet from the grill. Let stand for 5 minutes. Take care when opening the foil; allow the steam to escape.

Recipe Tips:

When time is tight: Toss the potato slices with 3 tablespoons water in a microwave-safe bowl. Cover and microwave on high until crisp-tender, about 2-3 minutes. Drain potatoes. Prepare the remaining recipe as directed; check the potatoes for doneness after grilling for 12-15 minutes.

Side grilled meats with this version of loaded baked potatoes. Cooked in a foil packet, serve them at a campfire breakfast, too. Topped with bacon and two types of gooey, melted cheese, these potatoes will be popular.
