Ingredients

4
medium baking potatoes
1/4
cup margarine or butter, softened
1
medium onion, halved lengthwise, thinly sliced
1/2
teaspoon salt
1/2
teaspoon garlic powder
1/4
teaspoon pepper
4
teaspoons water
2
oz. (1/2 cup) finely shredded Cheddar cheese
1
oz. (1/4 cup) shredded fresh Parmesan cheese
  • 1 Heat grill. Cut four 18x12-inch pieces of heavy-duty foil. Make 6 or 7 crosswise cuts in each potato, cutting to but not through bottom. Spread margarine between slices.
  • 2 Place each potato on piece of foil. Place half onion slice in each cut. Sprinkle potatoes with salt, garlic powder and pepper. Add 1 teaspoon water to each potato. Wrap each packet securely using double-fold seals, allowing room for heat expansion.
  • 3 When ready to grill, place packets, seam side up, on gas grill over medium heat or on charcoal grill 4 to 6 inches from medium-high coals. Cook 35 to 40 minutes or until potatoes are tender.
  • 4 To serve, open each packet carefully to allow steam to escape. Sprinkle each potato with Cheddar and Parmesan cheese. Close packets until cheese is melted.
