- There are many ways to cook a potato but one of the best recipes for the grill
is something a little different, a sliced and loaded grilled potato.
This recipe gives you a side dish similar to a baked potato but full of
that grilled flavor you love. Not only is it an easy dish to make but
your friends and family will love them.
Sliced and Loaded Grilled Potatoes
- Baking Potatoes (choose the size and amount you want)
- Fresh Herbs of Your Choice (Dill, Rosemary, Chives, etc are excellent choices)
- Seasoning of your choice
- Grated Cheddar Cheese
- Aluminum Foil
Take your potatoes,wash them well, and place each one on a piece of aluminum foil large enough to wrap the potato when done with preparation. Make slices into the potatoes as if you were cutting them up but do not make the slice go entirely through the potato. Fan the potatoes out so you can add your ingredients and start with your seasoning, herbs, and cheese first. You can add a pat of butter between each slice and/or add melted butter over the entire potato. Wrap each one in aluminum foil and grill until tender.
The butter makes the potatoes nice and tender and the seasoning and herbs integrate into the potatoes to give them a wonderful flavor. Finally, the cheese melts and creates the perfect grilled, not baked potato.
It can take up to 45 minutes for your potatoes but it's well worth the wait to get one of the most delicious side dishes there is. These go perfect with most any kind of meat but if you're a steak and potatoes guy or girl, you'll especially love this with a juicy, grilled steak.
