Grilled Smoky Cheddar Potatoes

**Courtesy of Ms. Betty Crocker
**We used this recipe as a side to Grilled Portabella Mushroom Sandwiches

~ 4 medium potatoes, cut into 1-inch chunks
~ 1/2 teaspoon salt
~ 2 tablespoons butter or margarine
~ 1 cup shredded smoked or regular cheddar cheese
~ 2 tablespoons bacon bits
~ 2 medium green onions, sliced

1.  Heat coals or gas grill for direct heat.
2.  Place potato chunks on 30x18-inch piece of heavy-duty foil.  Sprinkle with salt.  Cut butter into small pieces; sprinkle over potatoes.  Sprinkle with cheese and bacon bits.
3.  Wrap foil securely around potatoes; pierce top of foil once or twice with fork to vent steam.  Cover and grill foil packet, seam side up, over medium heat 45 to 60 minutes or until potatoes are tender.  Sprinkle with onions.
*Personal touch - JP and I did not add the green onions.

** JP and I rate this recipe 4 out of 5 stars.  It was difficult to tell when the potatoes were tender and it took longer to cook than we liked.
