Units of Measurement:

main
  • 4 Large Baking Potato, equal size

  • 1/4 Pound Parmesan cheese

  • 4 Tablespoon butter, melted

  • 1 As Needed Traeger Veggie Rub

  • 2 Tablespoon heavy cream

  • 1/2 Cup shredded cheddar cheese

  • 2 Tablespoon freshly minced chives

Steps

  • 1

    If desired, peel the potatoes, or simply scrub them thoroughly with a vegetable brush.
    Ingredients
    • 4 Large Baking Potato, equal size

  • 2

    Position a potato lengthwise with a pencil or chopstick on either side of it; these will serve as cutting guides.
  • 3

    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.
  • 4

    Cut the parmesan cheese into 2” wide slices. Cut each slice into very thin slices.
    Ingredients
    • 1/4 Pound Parmesan cheese

  • 5

    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.
    Ingredients
    • 4 Tablespoon butter, melted

    Season generously with the Traeger Veggie rub. Pour a little of the cream over each potato, just for that added delicious richness.
