Man Sides: Cheesy Accordion Potatoes

Man Sides: Cheesy Accordion Potatoes

Feeling a bit flummoxed as to what to make those exceptional guys in your life to accompany the fabulous Traeger'ed meat-athon that you've got planned for Father's Day? Well, put the recipe books down. Your search is over. You must have these Cheesy Accordion Potatoes somewhere on your Man's Day menu! They are baked potatoes on steroids. We don't just settle for a sprinkling of cheese and a dab of butter on top. We stud the whole thing with cheese and drizzle it with butter and cream. It's pretty much the best baked potato you will ever make.

We're pulling this tweaked recipe from our never-fail Traeger on a Budget cookbook.


Prep time: 20 minutes
Cook time: About 1 hour
Serves: 4
Pellet recommendation: Oak

4 large unblemished baking potatoes, such as Idahos, of approximately equal size
4 tablespoons butter, melted
2 tablespoons cream
Traeger Veggie Shake, or seasoned salt
1/4 pound of parmesan cheese
1/2 cup finely grated cheddar cheese
2 tablespoons minced fresh chives or chopped parsley for serving (optional)

If desired, peel the potatoes, or simply scrub them thoroughly with a vegetable brush. Position a potato lengthwise with a pencil or chopstick on either side of it. (The pencils or chopsticks will be your cutting guides.) Using a sharp knife, cut each potato crosswise into thin slices, being careful not to cut all the way through the bottom: The pencils should stop your knife from cutting too deep. Repeat with the remaining potatoes. (Note: If cutting more than 4 potatoes, hold the cut ones in a bowl of cold water while you work on the remaining potatoes to prevent them from oxidizing. Drain thoroughly on paper towels before proceeding with the recipe.)

Cut the parmesan cheese into 2-inch wide slices. Cut each slice into very thin slices.

Put the potatoes in a baking dish, cut-side up. Drizzle them with the melted butter.

Using the thin slices of parmesan cheese, stud each slice or every other slice in the potatoes. (The thicker your cheese slices are, the fewer you'll be able to fit in each potato.)

Season generously with the Traeger Veggie Shake.

Pour a little of the cream over each potato, just for that added delicious richness.

When ready to cook, start the Traeger grill on Smoke with the lid open until the fire is established (4 to 5 minutes). Set the temperature to 400 degrees F and preheat, lid closed, for 10 to 15 minutes.

Cover the baking pan with foil and position on the grill grate and bake the potatoes for about 1 hour, or until they are tender.

Take off the foil and sprinkle the tops evenly with the cheese and bake for 5 minutes more, or until the cheese is melted and golden.

Transfer the potatoes to a platter or plates and garnish with the chopped chives, if desired.

How about alternating a (half) slice of (pre-cooked) bacon with the parmesan?  Sounds like a winner to me.

The goal during the first few weeks after spine surgery is to help the patient heal while gradually regaining mobility and the ability to function on his or her own. We call this alopecia areata, which means areas of hair loss. Women undergoing breast cancer treatment and their caregivers will hold the Texas Flag and the Anthem singer will be Lyle Lovett.

I tend not to leave a leave a response, however I read a few of the responses on Team Traeger | Man Sides: Cheesy Accordion Potatoes. I do have 2 questions for you if it's okay. Could it be simply me or does it give the impression like some of these responses look like they are written by brain dead people? :-P And, if you are posting at other social sites, I would like to keep up with everything new you have to post. Could you post a list of the complete urls of all your shared sites like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?

For this reason you will need to provide the online game your best till the end. Upon claiming five prestigious competitions ---the Champions League, the UEFA Supercup, the Spanish Cup (Copa del Rey), the National League, and the Spanish Supercup--- Messi was able to lead Barcelona side to victory in the FIFA Club World Cup in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) at the turn of the 2009, becoming Spain's most popular person and making Barcelona one of the world's most successful clubs in football history. This can be to some extent mainly because men and women of all age ranges could be engaged as well as households tend to be delivered jointly by means of this particular.
