What's this?

Smoky bacon, melted cheese, and crisp chives—Yes, please!

Ingredients

  • 8 Baking Potato, equal size

  • 2 Cup milk

  • 12 Tablespoon butter, melted

  • 2 Tablespoon chives, chopped

  • 6 Strips cooked bacon, crumbled

  • As Needed salt

  • As Needed pepper

  • 2 Cup shredded cheddar cheese

  • As Needed Chives, fresh

Steps

  • 1

    When ready to cook, set grill temperature to High and preheat, lid closed for 15 minutes.
  • 2

    Scrub the potatoes under cold running water and pat dry with paper towels. Poke in several places with a fork.
  • 3

    Arrange the potatoes directly on the grill grate and bake for about 1 hr and 15 minutes, or until the potatoes are cooked through.
  • 4

    Use oven mitts to transfer the potatoes to a rimmed baking sheet. Let the potatoes cool slightly for 5 to 10 minutes. Turn grill temperature down to 375℉.
  • 5

    Cut the potatoes in half lengthwise, and scoop the potato flesh into a bowl leaving a 1/4” shell.
  • 6

    With a mixer, whip on low speed for about 30 seconds. Slowly add the hot milk (start with 1 1/2 C then see if you need the remaining 1/2 C) and melted butter. Increase the speed to medium-high and whip until the potatoes are fluffy and smooth, 90 seconds to 2 minutes.
  • 7

    Stir in the chives and bacon. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  • 8

    Lay the hollowed-out potato skins on a large baking sheet and fill each skin to heaping with the whipped potato filling. Top each potato half with a generous sprinkling of cheese.
  • 9

    Cook at 375℉ for 20 minutes or until golden brown and cheese is melted.
  • 10

    Remove from grill and top with chives, if desired. Enjoy!
