Ingredients

  • 450 grams Little Potatoes about 14 potatoes, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • pinch of pepper
  • 2 slices bacon cooked until crispy and crumbled
  • 1 cup cheddar cheese
  • 2 green onions sliced

Instructions

  • Place potatoes on a large microwave-safe plate (choose potatoes that are roughly the same size) and cook on high for 3-4 minutes (very little potatoes for 3 minutes, little potatoes for 4 minutes) until somewhat tender.
  • Preheat the grill to medium heat (about 350 degrees F).
  • Let cool enough to touch and slice potatoes thinly.
  • Lay two large sheets of aluminum foil together (or use a cast iron skillet or grill pan) and spray with cooking spray.
  • Place one single layer of potatoes on top. Combine salt and pepper and sprinkle ⅓ over potatoes. Top with ⅓ cheese and ⅓ bacon.
  • Repeat layers two more times until all potatoes, cheese and bacon are used. Fold up the sides (if using a skillet or pan, you may want to cover with foil to keep the heat in) and pinch the top closed. Place directly on heat, cover grill and cook for 10-20 minutes, until potatoes are tender all the way through. Open foil and sprinkle with green onions. Serve immediately.

Notes

*These potatoes can also be baked in the oven for roughly the same amount of time at 350-400 degrees F.
