Hassleback Potatoes

Hubs and I have been grilling alot lately...between the heat (which apparently has been on vacation the past few weeks. I'm content with that!) and the great marked down meats I've been getting lately, it just makes sense! We like to have potatoes when we grill...but I'm getting sick of foil wrapped potatoes and onions...fast! I decided to give this a shot and was happy with the result!


...1 potato per person (skins left on. more nutrients.)
...1 tbsp. butter per potato
...Italian Seasoning
...Garlic Powder


Place a potato between the handles of two wooden spoons. With a serrated knife, make cuts in the potato (the short way) that are 1/8" - 1/4" inch wide, not going all the way down through the potato (this is why the wooden spoon handles are here, to keep the depth of the cuts from going through and to keep them even). Repeat with each potato. Melt butter and pour 1 tbsp. worth over each potato. Sprinkle on garlic powder and italian seasoning. Bake in a shallow baking dish in the oven at 425* for 35-45 minutes.

My Thoughts...

This had a really great presentation to it, with the slices and the way that the skins turned golden it was almost an elegant looking dish! It had a great roasted taste to it and each slice easily pulled off making a fun finger food to go with our grilled steaks. The only thing I would make sure to do differently is to make sure the butter and spices get in between each slice...my flavorings all stayed up top, which gave the outside of the potato great flavor but left the inside pretty plain. This was fabulous, and I will for certain be making this again and again to go with our grilled (and non grilled) main dishes!
