Reasons Why You Should Try This Dish

Have you heard that baked potatoes can be prepared on the grill?

And that both the interior and exterior are light and airy and crisp.

Baked potatoes worthy of a steakhouse can be made quickly and easily on the grill, eliminating the need to return and forth between the kitchen and the grill. Oh, and did I mention that the outside is salted?

Because a salt-crusted baked potato is the universal food.

The Secret to Their Deliciousness: Potatoes

  • Their skins are salt-crusted and crisp, and their interiors are light and airy.
  • In this article, we show you how to make them in a few simple steps, complete with illustrations.
  • They require no preparation outside of throwing them on the grill, so you can focus on your company and the weather while they cook.
  • To make the insides fluffier and to speed up the grilling process, these baked potatoes are precooked in the microwave first.

Making Them: A Guide

Step one: choose your potatoes. Select Russet potatoes of roughly the same size to ensure uniform cooking.

For 15 minutes with the lid closed, heat your grill to about 350 degrees Fahrenheit on high heat.

Next, get the potatoes ready. Scrub the potatoes and stab them all over with a fork. Apply avocado oil or another neutral oil after drying. Coat the potatoes by turning them over in batches as you pour about 3 tablespoons of oil into a large, shallow bowl. Pull out, then wait for the oil to drain before proceeding.

In a second, larger bowl, sprinkle some Kosher or sea salt. Potatoes rubbed with oil are then moved to a salt bowl where they are thoroughly coated.

Make sure there are no holes or bare spots by carefully wrapping each potato in two layers of foil. Put on grill with lid closed. Bake for 30 to 40 minutes, or until a skewer inserted into the thickest part of the potato meets no resistance.

Discard foil and take off grill. Purify and reuse

Using a knife, make a slit down the top of the potato; then, with your hands covered in a towel or potholder to avoid burns, press the ends in towards the center to open the potato. If you want to fluff the meat, use a fork to scrape it. Prepare with a variety of condiments

Get That Grill Ready!

It is crucial for this and any other grilling recipe that the grill be properly preheated. Make sure the grill is nice and hot, at least 350 degrees Fahrenheit (176 degrees Celsius), before adding the potatoes. To get your grill to the ideal cooking temperature, preheat it for 15 minutes with the lid closed.

Cooking Advice

  • Get the grill nice and hot before you start cooking. For further explanation, see the preceding section.
  • It's not necessary to salt the potato, but doing so will produce a deliciously crunchy exterior. I would suggest it to anyone.
  • To prevent your potato from exploding in the microwave, prick it all over with a fork first.
  • Expect a longer cooking time, say 40 minutes, if you need to open the lid frequently while using the grill. Keep the lid closed as much as possible while cooking other foods. This makes the grill suitable for cooking the potatoes like an oven.
  • Make sure there are no holes or flare-ups by wrapping your potato in two layers of foil.
  • Get potatoes that are all about the same size so they cook evenly.
  • Cook your potato in the microwave for four to five minutes, or until it yields easily when squeezed (be sure to protect your hand with a towel or potholder). You can start this hours in advance, and if you like, finish it on the grill.
  • To easily crust the outside of your potatoes, use a wide, shallow bowl to roll them in salt.

Toppings Ideas

Grilled chicken, steamed broccoli, cheese sauce, chili, butter, cheese, sour cream, bacon bits, green onions, ranch dressing, salsa, diced tomatoes Vegans can use ghee, and Whole30 adherents can use vegan butter. Vegans and those on Whole30 can both enjoy my Vegan Queso made with vegan cheese shreds.

  • plate or bowl large enough to fit in a microwave
  • 4 potatoes, 8 sheets of aluminum foil
  • Grill at 350 degrees Fahrenheit with the lid closed. Toss one russet potato into a medium bowl while the grill heats up. Fork-dent your potatoes, then drizzle them with some neutral oil. Put aside one potato and proceed with the rest.
  • Put enough salt in a second medium bowl so that it completely covers the bottom. Put one oiled potato in a bowl, sprinkle with salt, and toss. Place in a microwave-safe dish and continue with the remaining potatoes.
  • After you've seasoned and oiled all of the potatoes, pop them in the microwave. For 4 minutes on high, microwave the potatoes in their skins. Take potatoes out of microwave and double-wrap them in foil to prevent them from exploding.
  • Put the potatoes on the grill grate directly in the foil. Close the lid and grill the potatoes for 30 to 40 minutes, turning occasionally. A reminder that grilling times increase with each lid opening.
  • After 30 minutes, remove foil from one potato and use a fork or skewer to pierce the skin to test for doneness. Remove potatoes from grill when a fork or skewer can be inserted into one with little to no resistance.
  • Remove foil from grilled potatoes and set aside. First, make a lengthwise cut down the middle of the potato, and then gently press both ends to open the potato up. Fork-fluff the potato flesh and serve with the fixings of your choice.
  • Make sure the grill is nice and hot before adding the potatoes.
  • Keep spuds in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 5 days.

In addition to keeping your baked potatoes hot for an extended period of time, aluminum foil is a good heat conductor.
