These make the perfect meal or side dish and can be cooked on the campfire or bar-b-cue.  I like that the preparation for this dish is quick and clean up is easy.  That’s a huge plus when camping!

I try to do as much of the preparation as I can at home.  Sometimes I will even pre-cook the potatoes in my oven so that when we go camping this dish doesn’t take as long to make.  I purchase pre-shredded cheese and bacon bits so that all I have to do is cut the potatoes and onions and this camping recipe is good to go!

Wrap everything up tight in a tinfoil packet.  I like to have two layers of tinfoil, especially if I am cooking this camping recipe on the campfire.  I place the packet close to the hot coals but not IN the fire.  Cooking this on a bar-b-cue is totally an option too and allows for more control over the heat and cook time.

AH-mazing right?!  We served these with Walmart steaks (they are seriously the best) and a ceasar salad.  We felt like we were eating like kings!  Loaded Campfire Potatoes are a camping staple for sure.

I love these potatoes paired with chicken skewers, grilled steak or burgers.  They can even be a stand alone meal for lunch!

    I’ve been doing potatoes on the grill like this for years, bell peppers, onions, cheese, bacon or chunks of ham, lots of cheese. I use pie tins, aluminum loaf pans depending on how many are eating. Obviously some one has stolen my recipe. BTW, use non stick spray when using the tins to keep things from sticking or burning.
