cheesy campfire goodness
Grilling has been about all The Hubby and I have been doing lately. Summer is here and I don’t know about you but heating the house up wth my oven is not so fun…so out to the grill (or campfire) we go.
Grilling more than just meat
Grilling is not just for the main portion of your meal, it can also be for your sides. Some of my favorite grilled sides are veggies, especially onions and peppers but tonight we wanted to do something a little different.
The Hubby and I decided to grill some potatoes in a pan to make a delicious potato and cheese casserole. This cheesy campfire potato casserole is all made in one pan, making it perfect for a weekend treat or a camping adventure.
Over a fire or on a grill
Now I have never been that big on camping but for those of you who do love it, these potatoes would be a perfect dish to make. You can season them with just about anything. You could even add in some leftover bacon from breakfast or some smoked sausage for an even better cheesy potato dish.
You don’t have to cook the potatoes for anytime before, just cut them up and thrown them in the pan. Top the potatoes with some chopped onions, spices and cheese to make a dish to remember.
Perfect for summer…
As I mentioned I have never been a big fan of camping. We did go camping once or twice when I was a kid (in an RV), but never in a tent. The one thing I remember more than anything about that trip were the potatoes my mom made almost every meal. They were golden brown and so delicious it didn’t matter what else she fixed. All I wanted were those potatoes.
I understand these potatoes are not fried but they definitely bring me back to those days of my mom’s potatoes. They are crispy and tender all in the same bite. To amp it up a bit, these potatoes have bits of onion and cheese running through them…which in my book makes them just as good (if not better).
Whether you will be making these on a campfire or on a grill…they are perfect for summer!!

Some for everyone…
I used a square pan which will feed 6-8 people, but you could make a bigger batch as needed. If you are going to be feeding a lot of people you can use a rectangle pan & double the recipe to feed 12-16 people easily. This would be a perfect pot luck dish as well, and could be cooked in the oven if needed.
Whether you are camping or grilling in your back yard,remember to make today Sparkle – MJ
PS…these would be great for the 4th of July!!
