Grilled BBQ Bacon Twice-Baked Potatoes
Tender potato shells stuffed with mashed potatoes flavored with barbecue sauce, bacon and cheddar cheese, and grilled to perfection! Microwaving the potatoes keeps things super easy and keeps the house cool in the summer. You can also bake them in the oven if you desire.
- 4 medium potatoes
- 4-5 tbsp milk
- 2-3 tbsp barbecue sauce
- salt to taste
- 3 slices bacon cooked and crumbled
- 3/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese divided
- green onion for garnish
Place whole potatoes on a plate and microwave on high for 8-10 minutes, until cooked through (you can check if they're cooked by piercing with a sharp knife -- the knife should go in and come out easily with little resistance). Let cool for 5-10 minutes. Slice in half and scoop out potato in the middle, leaving enough around the edge for a sturdy shell.
Mash removed potato with milk, barbecue sauce and salt. Stir in bacon (reserving some for garnish if desired) and 1/2 cup cheddar cheese. Divide mashed potatoes between potato shells (*At this point you can refrigerate up until ready to cook and serve).
Preheat the grill to roughly 400 degrees F. Increase heat on one side of the grill and turn heat off on the other. Place potatoes on the side with the heat off, and grill for 15-20 minutes until heated through. Sprinkle with additional cheese, bacon and green onion if desired.
