Ingredients

  • 1 bag (16 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 cooked 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.

Tips from the Pillsbury Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Top with slices of pepper Jack cheese instead of American cheese for a spicy kick!
  • tip 2
    Grillmaster tip: When the fries are gone, crumple foil into a ball and use it to scrape grill grates clean. More smart foil tips.
  • tip 3
    Instead of topping with bacon, serve with hot chili for chili cheese fries!
