Cheesy Potatoes on Grill
Who can say no to grilled cheesy potatoes and the bacon? Well that’s the icing on top! Diced potatoes loaded with butter onions and cheese these are like loaded baked potatoes, but even better! An easy side dish, think of this when there’s no room in the oven during busy holiday meals! These potatoes on the grill are one of our family favorites.

Delicious and ridiculously easy pull the pan off the grill (or outa the oven) and regular potatoes? Never again, everyone is gonna want these taters!
What’s not to love, right?!!! Grilling potatoes on the grill is a weekly rotation around this place.
What are the best potatoes to grill?
I love the creamy and fluffiness of Yukon Gold potatoes, fingerlings or red potatoes are also a great choice! Russet potatoes are super starchy and won’t be your best choice. Because of this they may end up soggy rather than tender.
If all you have on hand are russet potatoes then I’m not going to tell you to rush to the store and buy something different, instead soak the potatoes in cold water for a couple of hours. Then dry the potatoes thoroughly. If they are not completely dry they will steam and may end up soggy.
Grilled Cheesy Potatoes
Our favorite main dish to pair with potatoes on the grill are these Asian Chicken Skewers, Beer Can Chicken, or my famous Sausage and Grilled Shrimp Kabobs! My mine is already asking for the latter of those choices next summer while we are at the cabin!
You know what else I love about these potatoes on the grill? They are made in a foil pan so I can literally toss everything together and then toss the pan right in the garbage. High five for easy clean up!
What is the best way to dice potatoes?
- Start by scrubbing the potato well under warm water.
- Then after the potatoes are completely clean, cut a thick slice off one side of the potato.
- Flip it onto the cut side, this will give you a flat surface, next cut thick slices.
- Lay the slices flat on your cutting board slice them lengthwise into strips that are as wide as the slice is thick.
- Cut the slices into a dice.
- Cutting the potatoes into uniform pieces will ensure they all get done at the same time!
