This is a quick and easy recipe for grilled potato skins. This dish is perfect for summer barbecues or Super Bowl parties. Serve with either a ranch or blue cheese dipping sauce. 

What You'll Need

  • 8 medium yukon gold or 8 small russet potatoes, cut in half lengthwise
  • 1 cup/240 mL cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 1/2 cup/120 mL sour cream
  • 1 small onion, finely diced
  • 4-5 slices cooked bacon, crumbled
  • 3 tablespoons/45 mL butter
  • 1 teaspoon/5 mL dried rosemary
  • 1 teaspoon/5 mL salt
  • 1 teaspoon/5 mL black pepper

How to Make It

Preheat grill for medium heat. Combine rosemary, butter, salt, and pepper in a small bowl. Cut potatoes in half. Hollow out the center of each half. Place potatoes in the microwave for 6-7 minutes. You might need to do this in batches so the potatoes cook faster. Remove and brush potatoes with butter mixture. Place potatoes on grill rack skin side up. Grill for 5 minutes, turn, and grill for 3 minutes.

Add cheese to wedges and cook for an additional 2-3 minutes. Remove from grill, and top off with crumbled bacon, onion, and sour cream. These are simply delicious with the added burst of flavor from a ranch or blue cheese dipping sauce.
