Frozen French fries work great on the grill! These grilled cheesy fries go from frozen to table in a flash!

Ingredients

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

Steps

  • 1 Heat gas or charcoal grill to medium-high heat. Toss frozen French fries with melted butter.
  • 2 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.
  • 3 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.

Expert Tips

Top with pieces of pepper Jack cheese instead of American cheese for a spicy kick!

Grillmaster tip: When the fries are gone, crumple foil into a ball and use it to scrape grill grates clean. More smart foil tips.
