Categorized under: Dinner

BBQ Temp: Hot


  • large potatoes, baked

This meal is so, so easy but it does require some planning and a bit of's a great idea to bake the potatoes before you leave the home and wrap them in tin foil to take on the camping trip...and keep them chilled.

Between the cuts, stuff a slice of cheese, bacon, and ham.

Add small dabs of butter on top of each of the slices. Salt & pepper to taste.

Wrap potato in double layer of tin foil lightly sprayed with cooking spray.

Place on a hot BBQ for 20+ minutes...until potato is hot and cheesy, ham & bacon have melted together and it looks tasty and good!

Top the Potato Boat dinner with sour cream and green onion if you like. The Potato Boat has so many could leave out the ham & bacon and just add cheese and broccoli, or chill, or cooked taco meat.
