Grill - Twice Grilled Potatoes, Fully Loaded

I wanted an impressive side to coordinate with my pork tenderloin, so I came up with these potatoes. They're a cross between twice cooked potatoes and a loaded baked potato and they get the best of both worlds. Be sure the let the potatoes cool after cooking them, and grill them thoroughly to ensure the potato meat comes out easily. I started with a dozen potato halves, but only got 6 potatoes out of it because the other 6 tore too easily. Make sure you par boil them for at least 8 minutes. Then transfer them to the grill to get the crispy skins that make them so tasty.

Medium Heat
30 minutes
5-8 Servings


  • 5-6 Idaho potatoes, cut in half
  • 1/2 pound bacon, cooked crispy and chopped
  • 1 tbs chives, chopped
  • 2 cups cheddar cheese, shredded

Parboil potatoes for 8 minutes and remove from heat. Coat grill with oil and grill face down on medium heat for 10 minutes. Flip potatoes and cook for 10 minutes until done in center. Remove from grill and let cool. Spoon out the potato meat and mix with bacon, cheese and chives, reserving 1/4 cup cheese. Spoon back into potato skins and sprinkle with remaining cheese. Return to grill and grill 8-10 minutes on low heat until skins are crispy and cheese is melted.
