Quick and easy barbecued potatoes

    29 minutes

    These are like a baked potato, but better! This recipe is so simple and makes a delicious side dish, a 'baked' potato that is soft in the middle and barbecued on the outside. We dip ours in sour cream and shallots.

    1. Poke each potato with a fork. Cook the potatoes in the microwave on high for about 5 minutes. Check about halfway through, and turn potatoes over for even cooking. Slice each potato in half the long way and cook potatoes another 2 minutes on high power.
    2. Preheat the barbecue to medium.
    3. Brush the potato tops with olive oil, and season with salt and pepper to taste.
    4. Cook on the BBQ for 15 to 20 minutes, turning once.

    Just a little tip as to how we make ours (the recipe was edited a bit): I actually also rub the skins with oil, salt and pepper, which makes them just a bit crispier. Enjoy!  -  09 Jul 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I fixed these for dinner tonight . I followed most of the recipe as written except....I used 5 smaller potatoes instead of 2 large . After microwaving , I sliced them in half , covered them with Krafts Tuscan House Italian Dressing and Marinade , let them sit for about 45 minutes & then grilled them . Served with sour cream & butter, they tasted great (in fact they would have been great even without the sour cream ) ! This recipe will be a regular here during grilling season . Thanks !  -  17 Jun 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    The only way to eat potatoes in this household now. We also coat the halved potatoes entirely with olive oil then sprinkle with kosher salt, cracked pepper. Sometimes to kick up the flavor a notch we sprinkle steak seasonings on them as well. Amazing flavor and lets you eat the entire potato for more nutrients! Great recipe!!  -  03 Jun 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
