How to Make Grilled Potato Salad


  1. Spray 2 large sheets of heavy duty aluminum foil with cooking spray
  2. Layer sliced potatoes, onion, seasonings on one sheet of aluminum foil
  3. Top with bacon, peppers, cheese then pats of butter (in that order works best)
  4. cover with second sheet of sprayed aluminum foil and seal edges well
  5. cook on medium grill 35 minutes.
  6. I often split this into 2 batches; one with peppers and one without. This is definitely a crowd pleaser!
