"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 perfectly grilled on the outside. We dip ours in sour cream and green onions!"

  1. Poke each potato with the tines of a fork. Place the potatoes in a microwave oven, and cook on high power 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 a grill for medium heat.
  3. Brush the potato tops with olive oil, and season with salt and pepper to taste.
  4. Cook on prepared grill for 15 to 20 minutes, turning once.

The health police may be looking, but...... I don't care. Generously rub the potato skins with soft bacon grease, just put some in the palm of your hand and do it, then season with kosher salt a...

This was incredibly easy and a nice change from the same old baked potato. I added a little paprika and garlic powder to the mix.

I tried these tonight and they were really tasty! At the end of the grilling time I put a handful of shredded cheese on top and closed the grill for a few minutes. Just like a loaded baked pot...
