Campfire Recipes – Grilled Chessy Foil Fries

2WAAM-Cheesy-Foil-FriesFrench fries taste good anywhere, seriously I can’t think of anywhere that eating french fries wouldn’t be some level of awesome. Add cheese, and bacon…. and I turn into Homer Simpson looking at a donut.

So read on fellow camper, traveler, or simple foodie for deliciousness from aluminum foil.


1 bag (14 oz) frozen crinkle-cut French fries
1 tablespoon butter, melted
4 slices American cheese2 tablespoons sliced green onions (2 medium)
2 tablespoons cooked real bacon bits


Heat gas or charcoal grill to medium-high heat. Toss frozen French fries with melted butter. Tear off 2 (12-inch) lengths of Reynolds Wrap® Heavy Duty Foil to make foil boats. Place half of the fries in a single layer in the center of 1 piece of foil. Loosely fold foil around edges to form a boat, leaving large hole at top to allow steam to escape; repeat with remaining fries and foil. Place foil packets on grill over indirect heat. Cover grill; cook 20 to 30 minutes, stirring once, until fries are crispy and baked through. Top each packet with 2 slices cheese; cook about 2 minutes longer or until cheese is melted. Sprinkle with sliced green onions and bacon bits just before serving.
