  1. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium heat and lightly oil the grate.
  2. Slice potatoes carefully through a long side, almost to the bottom but not through, to create even, fan-like cuts.
  3. Pull slices apart gently and sprinkle potatoes with salt and pepper. Place onion and butter slices between potato slices. Wrap each potato in heavy-duty aluminum foil and seal well.
  4. Bake on the preheated grill until soft, turning occasionally, about 1 hour. Remove from grill and let sit 10 minutes before unwrapping.


  • Cook's Note:
  • Serve with more butter and sour cream, if desired.
