Camping & BBQ Recipes Week: Potato Boat Dinner with Ham, Cheese & Bacon

Hi there & welcome to Day 3 of Camping & BBQ Recipes Week!
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.
{Be sure to visit 2 of my popular posts ever on camping here and here.}
This meal is so, so easy but it does require some planning and a bit of'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:
Large potatoes, baked
Sliced ham
Cooked bacon slices
cheese slices {we like marble}
Sour cream for topping
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!
 Top the Potato Boat dinner with sour cream and green onion if you like.
The Potato Boat has so many 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.
When I made the Potato Boat Dinner to share with y'all on my blog, my son got home from school and I offered him one.
I have never seen a meal disappear so fast...or so much sour cream all over one person's face!
