Lay out a large sheet of heavy-duty aluminum foil. Grease foil with cooking spray.

Cut potato into 1/8-inch slices, like potato chips.

Place potato slices on foil. Fan them like cards so they overlap but still spread out.

Sprinkle seasonings and cheese over the top of potato slices. Dot with pats of butter.

Carefully wrap foil over top of potatoes, being careful to keep the slices arranged in a flat row.

Seal edges of foil and cook directly on coals for about 25 minutes or until potatoes are tender.
