Grilled Potato Skins

(originally made 8/2010)

I have a million potato recipes.   We like them all kinds of ways.   I've done potatoes on the grill before, but always in a packet or a grill pan.   I saw this recipe on TOH while poking around one day and put it straight on the to-try list.     There's a few steps involved, but overall if you've got things laid out it all comes together fast.   I didn't get out a ruler when I cut the excess off the potatoes, but I'm sure I left a little more than 1/4", so I microwaved mine the full 10 mins.    I browned the bacon while waiting for the potatoes to come out of the microwave.   The butter mixture comes together in just a few mins.  

When I go out to eat, I will often get an appetizer as my meal...  This fits that bill perfectly.   The crisp skin and the fluffy potato, topped with melty cheese, crispy bacon, and a dollop of sour cream.    I did intend on swapping the green onions out for chives, and then totally forgot.    :)  

Get those grills going and give this one a try!
