G-Mom-B would sprinkle the top with paprika, but I know she'd love the Lawry's Chile and Garlic Salt I used...
I still say that salt is the best thing that's happened to potatoes since eggs!Olla-Podrida to see Pattie's recipe using Fontina cheese and for oven directions.
Twice Baked Potatoes with Leeks Smoked on the Grill-adapted from Olla-Podrida
- Wash and dry russet potatoes, prick a few times with a knife and bake at 400 degrees for one hour. I used my little counter top oven.
- Remove from oven and carefully slice in half lengthwise, scoop out the insides leaving a thin layer in the shell.
- Mash the potatoes with some milk, butter and S&P.
- Plan on one large leek per 4 potatoes (add more or less, it's up to you but I'd lean towards more...) Using only the white and light green part of the leek, slice into 1/4" rings, separate the rings and rinse well. Dry them and saute in some butter for about 5 minutes. You don't want them to get brown, just soft.
- Stir the leeks into the mashed potatoes and fill the shells. Top with paprika or seasoned salt or chipotle powder.
- Add a handful of wood chips to your preheated grill. I put some hickory on tin foil and laid it under the grate of my gas grill.
- Put potatoes on a cast iron skillet, place on grill over indirect heat, cover grill and bake at med/high for about 30 minutes. You'll see lots of smoke... that's a good thing here.
- Serve with grilled steaks and love life!
