4
cups frozen potatoes O'Brien with onions and peppers (from 24-oz bag)
1
tablespoon vegetable oil
1/2
teaspoon seasoned salt
3/4
cup shredded Cheddar cheese (3 oz)
  1. Heat gas or charcoal grill. Spray 1 (18x13-inch) sheet of heavy-duty foil with cooking spray. Place potatoes on center of foil. Drizzle with oil; sprinkle with seasoned salt.
  2. Bring up 2 sides of foil over potatoes so edges meet. Seal edges, making tight 1/2-inch fold; fold again, allowing space for heat circulation and expansion. Fold other sides to seal.
  3. Place packet on grill over medium heat. Cover grill; cook 30 minutes, turning once. Carefully open packet; sprinkle cheese over potatoes. Cover loosely; let stand 4 to 5 minutes or until cheese is melted.

Variation
Use 4 cups seasoned potato wedges with skins instead of the O'Brien potatoes and skip the vegetable oil and seasoned salt. If you like heat, sprinkle potatoes with Monterey Jack cheese with jalapeƱo peppers.
Success
If you don't have heavy-duty foil, wrap potatoes in two layers of regular-strength foil.
