  • 6 slices bacon, cut in 1 in. pieces
  • 4 large Russet potatoes
  • 270 g Monterey Jack cheese, sliced
  • ½ stick (55 g) garlic butter, melted
  • Pepper
  • 4 squares aluminum foil
  • Sour cream, to taste (optional)


  1. Using a sharp paring knife, slice the potatoes without separating them completely (like an accordion).
  2. Place the potatoes in the centre of the aluminum squares and brush with the garlic butter.
  3. Insert 1 bacon piece and a half slice of cheese into each cut, add pepper and wrap up the potatoes, sealing the packets as tightly as possible. Place the potatoes directly on the coals and cook 1 hour turning regularly.
  4. Remove from the coals, unwrap carefully and enjoy immediately with sour cream if you like.
