Grilled Smokey Cheddar Potatoes

This can be cooked on the grill, over a fire, or in the oven and it's always tasty! I got the recipe from Betty Crocker.

4 medium potatoes, cut into 1-inch chunks
1/2 tsp salt
2 T butter or margarine
1 cup shredded smoked or regular Cheddar (4 oz)
2 T bacon flavor bits or chips (I cook and crumble my own bacon)
2 medium green onion, sliced (2 tablespoons)

Heat coals or gas grill.

Place potato chunks on 30X18 inch piece of heavy-duty aluminum foil. Sprinkle with salt. Dot with butter. Sprinkle with cheese and bacon bits.

Wrap foil securely around potatoes; pierce top of foil once or twice with a fork to vent steam. Cover and grill foil packet, seam side up, 4-6 inches from medium heat 45-60 minutes or until potatoes are tender. Sprinkle with onions.
