These potatoes are so easy to make and delicious! The secret is to microwave them for a few minutes until they are starting to soften.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

Our new favorite way to grill potatoes. In fact, we might like them better than baked potatoes (especially in the summer). Easy to prepare, they're buttery, soft, rich, and just melt in your mouth. Serve alongside grilled steak for a summer-style steakhouse meal.
