Love for the "hasselback" potato

Ribeye steak seared at 700° on the BGE until medium rare and grilled "hasselback" potatoes with kosher salt, minced garlic, pepperjack and American cheese and crumbled bacon tucked between the slices. I forgot to place an order for asparagus this morning when my better half went to the market or we would have had grilled asparagus as well.

These potatoes will DEFINITELY be on our menu again.

    The potatoes sound fantastic.  May need to try them tomorrow.  Great cook

    Wow I can't wait to try the potatoes. Did you bake in oven or BGE?

    Th potatoes were cooked in the BGE at 400° for about an hour then they came off and went into a 200° oven to keep them hot while the BGE was brought up to temp for the steaks.

    The garlic wasn't put on the potatoes until the last 15 minutes and the cheese and bacon went on after they came off the egg.

    +1 for the hasselback potatoes-hard to beat and you can certainly change up the topings.

    I forgot to add that the potatoes were cooked indirect...

    Definitely going to have to try those someday. We seem to have the worst luck with potatoes

    Will happily accept a flat line on the heart monitor for that meal especially that potato.

    Very well done sir.

  • Did you boil the potatoes first (per the recipe you linked)?
  • ParallelParallel Posts: 433
    No... but it might have made it easier to get them to "fan out". I did rinse them to keep the starch from sticking the slices together.

  • Thanks for replying. I'm having trouble getting these right on the egg.

    @charliebatutis - I had a problem with these until I tried the Yukon golds. They slice and hold together much better than a russet or whatever Green Giant spuds are. Yukons, boil very nicely and open to take the bacon. Nice change from twice bakers...

    So you boil @Skiddymarker?

  • SkiddymarkerSkiddymarker Posts: 8,347
    @henapple - Yes, perhaps the more appropriate term would be par-boil, just enough to soften the spud. My issue was that russets were either raw or cooked, there seemed to be no in between. The Yukons worked the best. SWMBO suggested using nuggets with only a couple of slices and and a bacon chunk in each... she might just have a good idea.

  • Thanks @skiddymarker. I will try the Yukon golds.
