Whenever I grill, I stand outside having fun playing with fire while my wife makes all the side dishes in the house. So, I decided that I wanted to make the side dishes myself on the grill so she could actually have a break from cooking.
This is one of the first sides I tried to go with hamburgers and we liked it so much that I kept making it. We’ve tried different toppings and are anxious to try even more, so let us know if you come up with something good we haven’t tried.
- 14 ounce bag seasoned steak fries
- 1 Tablespoon butter, melted
- 4 ounces shredded cheddar cheese
- 2 Tablespoons sliced green onions
- 2 Tablespoons crumbled bacon (optional)
- Heat gas or charcoal grill to medium-high.
- Toss fries with melted butter
- Tear off two 12 inch sheets of aluminum foil.
- Place half the butter tossed fries in the center of each sheet of foil.
- Loosely fold foil to make a boat. Leave a big hole at the top so steam can escape.
- Place boats on grill over indirect heat. Cover grill and cook for about 25 minutes or until crisp, stirring once.
- Top each with 2 ounces of cheese and cook until cheese is melted, about 2 minutes and remove from grill.
- Sprinkle with green onions and bacon before serving.
- Other toppings to consider; sour cream, jalapenos, green chilies, monterey jack cheese (instead of or in addition to cheddar), ham, BBQ seasoning, fresh garlic...
