baking potatoes, scrubbed
Very delicious. Some things that I did diffrent would be once the potatoes were cut in half I poked holes in the potatoe with a fork. I also used seasoned salt instead regular salt. I also would recomened backing for about 55-60 minutes if you like your baked potatoes a bit softer.
What a waste of time. My medium-large spuds took well over 90 minutes to soften, and even then there were a couple of hard spots near the skin. The skin is my favorite part of baked taters, but they turned out soggy, wrinkly and inedible. I'll stick with my usual method of nuking the potatoes for 6 minutes, then finishing them off in the oven at about 450 for 30 mins. Not recommended.
These were good. I too have fixed them on the grill. I baked them in the oven tonight, but had to do them at 350.(had something else already cooking) They took 1 1/4 hrs. I used seasoned salt (just sprinkled), butter, and shaved parmesan cheese. Very tasty! A friend of mine taught me to score the potatoes about 1/4-1/2 inch deep,(like tic tac toe) after cutting in half lengthwise, so that the butter and seasonings get into the potato. Tastes better than ordinary baked potatoes and no prep time! Thanks!
I do this recipe a little differently. I drizzle olive oil on the potatoes instead of butter, and I put some whole garlice cloves in the foil package. The garlic gets more infused and doesn't smother the potatoes, and it also roasts in the olive oil.
I can't believe how something as easy as cutting the potatoes in half changes the flavour of them! I made them tonight just as the recipe is online and they were well loved by my entire family. (I have to make more next time!) The best thing about this recipe is that it can be altered to individual tastes and it will inevitably taste wonderful! I am thinking of trying a little dill next time!
I did these on the grill. I did two potatoes and partially microwaved them to cut down on time. I scored them and didn't measure the spices. I used seasoned salt and garlic powder. I also used a little melted butter and olive oil - not too much just enough to rub onto the potatoe. These are always delicious. I served them with a side of sour cream.
I made this recipe as is, and enjoyed it thoroughly. I felt that rather than garlic powder, fresh garlic would have made this so much better, given the 40 minute cooking time.
I do these all the time on the GRILL. They are great summer fare. Occasionally I add garlic, as well. With the new non-stick foil I can cook them super crispy on the outside without fear of burning. For large groups I also do these in a large aluminum foil pan on the grill. Make sure to seal the foil really really well before flipping though, and two sets of hands help during flipping as well, but it is great for a large party or potluck.
