Here's the perfect grilling trilogy, a tender, juicy grilled rib steak, prosciutto wrapped asparagus and this amazing garlic infused baked potato.

If you're thinking of what to grill for a special occasion (like Fathers Day or 4th of July) or just having family and friends over for a backyard BBQ then maybe this menu is just what you need.

The "secret" to this garlic baked potato recipe is all in the preparation.

Scoring or pre-slicing the potato and rubbing it in melted garlic butter before cooking pretty well guarantees the flavor's locked into the heart of the potato as it cooks.

After the potatoes cooked you can finish them off with your favorite baked potato toppings, sour cream, grated cheese, chives, crumbled bacon, whatever floats your boat.

4 Russett potatoes (baking potatoes)
canola oil for coating potatoes
kosher salt for rubbing potatoes
1 cup melted garlic butter
aluminum foil for wrapping potatoes
Suggested Toppings:
sour cream
crumbled cooked bacon
sliced chives
grated parmesan cheese


1. Wash each potato. Place the potatoes on a cutting board and very carefully begin making slices 1/4" apart into the potato.

Do not cut all the way through the potato!!!

You should be able to slightly fan the slices apart but still keep the potato intact.

2. Lightly cover the potatoes in oil and roll them in the kosher salt to cover.

3. Place each potato in a piece of aluminum foil (large enough to completely wrap it).

Pour about 1/4 cup of the softened garlic butter over each potato.

Allow the butter to seep down between the slices, you may have to help this along.

4. Wrap the potatoes completely in foil (so nothing leaks out).

5. Preheat the grill to 350F - 375F and place the wrapped potatoes on the upper warming rack for 1 hour.

After an hour test the largest potato for "doneness" by piercing it with a fork. If the fork goes in easily then they're done.

Remove from the grill, unwrap from the foil and let everyone dress them up with their favorite toppings.
