Potato Boat Dinner with Ham, Cheese & Bacon in Foil Packet

Today’s tin foil packet recipe is for a Potato Boat Dinner with ham, bacon & cheese.

My son loves this dinner because it includes 2 of his favourite food groups…ham & bacon.

This meal is so, so easy but it does require some planning and a bit of prep…it’s a great idea to bake the potatoes before you leave home and wrap them in tin foil  to take on the camping trip..and keep them chilled.

For this recipe, you will need:

  1. Large potatoes, baked

  2. Sliced ham

  3. Cooked bacon slices

  4. cheese slices {we like marble}

  5. Sour cream for topping

  6. Green Onion for topping


Slice baked potatoes like shown:

Between the cuts, stuff a slice of cheese, bacon and ham.

Add small dabs of butter on top of each of the slices. Salt & pepper to taste.

Wrap potato in double layer of tin foil lightly sprayed with cooking spray.

Place on a hot BBQ for 20+ minutes…until potato is hot and cheese, ham & bacon have melted together and it looks toasty and good!

The Potato Boat has so many possibilities…you could leave out the ham & bacon and just add cheese and broccoli, or chili,or cooked taco meat.

Serve the Potato Boat Dinner with a big green salad, a Caesar salad or fresh fruit.

I like to add fresh fruit because a) my kids love fruit and b) and it’s a nice change from the saltiness of the bacon and ham.
