Grilled Cheesy Garlic Potatoes

Cheesy, flavorful potatoes that are cooked in tin foil, create an easy to clean up side dish!! Perfect for any BBQ or gathering, these potatoes are tender, and a favorite with everyone!

Living here in Houston, Texas, my family loves to grill. Not only does it help keep the house cool, but it cuts down on messes, as well as clean up duty!

Last week, my hubby grilled some steaks for dinner. Since nothing pairs better with steak than potatoes, I decided to create these foil packets and have him add them to the grill. My kiddos were big fan of the cheese in these, whereas I was a fan of the onion especially. All the flavors created a perfect side dish and dinner was fabulous!

Clean up is a breeze since all you have to do is package up the leftovers, if there are any, and simply toss the tin foil into the garbage! Score!!

From my family to yours, hope you enjoy!!
