May is in full swing and with the beautiful, warm weather comes grilling season! Steak, chicken, shrimp, burgers, hot dogs… are all the obvious carnivorous grilling favourites, but we can’t forget about the veggies. Cooking baked potatoes on the barbecue is probably one of the easiest and most delicious dishes for a cookout. We really love potatoes over here – fried, mashed, roasted and of course baked! You can top the baked potatoes with sour cream, cheese, bacon, chives, butter – all sorts of different flavors. There’s something for everyone when it comes to baked potatoes. This isn’t really a recipe, more of a ‘how-to’ so let’s get started.
Baked Potatoes on the Barbecue
Wash and pierce the potatoes using a fork. Individually wrap them in tin foil, and bake for 40-45 minutes on the barbecue over high heat.
Cut open potatoes with a knife to check doneness, they will be hot so be careful for the steam. The skin should be soft and open up easily.
Happy meatless Monday everyone and enjoy your baked potatoes and grilling season!
