Cheesy Campfire Potatoes

  • 6 potatoes, sliced  
  • 1/4 cup diced onion 
  • 2 tablespoons cold margarine  
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese  
  • 3/4 cup shredded mozzarella cheese  
  • 3/4 cup shredded Cheddar cheese  
  • Salt and ground black pepper to taste  

Cut 2 lengths of heavy duty foil approximately 18 inches square, placing one on top of the other for strength. Spray top one with non-stick spray. Spread potatoes on foil leaving plenty of room to fold up later. Scatter the onion over potatoes; slice the margarine over the potatoes; layer the Parmesan, mozzarella, and Cheddar cheeses over the potatoes; season with salt and pepper. Bring opposite edges of foil together and seal. Place the packet directly onto your campfire and cook until the potatoes are soft, about 35 minutes.
