We will be visiting Lake Erie this week and I am super excited to get away with my family!

Grilled French Fries
1 bag of frozen French fries
1/4 to 1/2 tsp. dried dill
2 to 3 tbsp. creamy Italian dressing
1 to 2 tbsp. minced onion
1/2 c. grated Cheddar cheese, RESERVE

In large bowl, mix all ingredients (except cheese) and put in a double foil packet, sealing edges tightly. Grill over hot coals for 10 to 15 minutes. Turn packet over and punch holes in foil to vent steam. Grill 10 to 15 minutes more. Open packet carefully because of steam, place French fried in a warmed serving dish and toss with 1/2 cup of grated cheddar cheese.
