Fire-up the grill and make these scrumptious cheese fries. They cook in foil packets, so you can make them on the grill at home or while camping. They're a favorite side dish for grilled steak or chicken, and they're simply incredible. Paprika, garlic, and onion powder add the right flavors, and the secret ingredient - Cheddar cheese soup - makes these potatoes even more special. Cheesy potato recipes have never been better.


Preparation Time5 min

Cooking Time25 min


  • 1 can (10.75 ounces) Campbell's Condensed Cheddar Cheese Soup
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • 4 cups frozen steak fries
  • paprika, to taste


  1. Stir the soup, milk, garlic and onion in a large bowl. Stir in the potatoes.

  2. Place the potato mixture on 4 (14-inch) squares of heavy-duty aluminum foil. Sprinkle with paprika. Fold the foil to make packets.

  3. Heat the grill to medium. Grill the packets for 25 minutes or until the potatoes are tender.

These are a really quick and easy side that will please almost everyone. We all loved it! I did make my own cheese soup for the top, and I also cut my own potatoes instead of using frozen, but other than that, I followed the recipe. It is very simple, but really doesn't taste simple. We had this with barbecued pork chops. It went perfectly with it!

We do a reasonable amount of grilling during the summer and this is definitely something we're going to try. I think at least one packet will be made with some Cajun seasoning since I'm a great fan of the Cajun fries from Five Guys Burgers and I think that would be a great addition to this version of cheese fries.

Because we follow a low carb diet we replaced the potatoes with sweet potatoes plus I used fresh garlic instead of powdered. It was very tasty, the potatoes were beautifully flavored by seasonings and the cheese soup and we will definitely make them again. Next time I might open the foil near the end, sprinkle some parmesan over the potatoes and grill for a few minutes.

Sweet potatoes make great fries as well. To make sweet potato fries, simply cut the sweet potato in rectangles like regular potato fries. If sweet potatoes are being used in this recipe, they might need to be parboiled a bit though because I find that they take longer to cook than ordinary potatoes.

These pouch potatoes look so awesome. I would never have thought to add cheese soup to cook 'fries'. This is an awesome idea. It's fun for the kids too to cook their fries in a pouch like this. I can see this being a big hit at a barbecue.



Can't wait to try these and I want to thank you for the sodium mgs! I am on a low sodium diet and this really helps me and others out on what recipes we can eat. Thanks again.
