K.C.C.O. Grilled Baked Potato™

This is a great recipe the last days of summer, tailgating or anytime.

I've used a broiler, but this also perfect outside on the grill.

I've also used real bacon and sour cream,  but you can vegan bacon or bacon bits, Greek yogurt or vegan sour cream instead.

4 medium to large potatoes
3 T. fresh chives
1/8 - 1/4 tsp. each: salt, pepper
1/2 c. each: sour cream, Chopped onions, shredded cheese
1/4 c. each: butter, crumbled bacon
2 cloves Chopped and crushed garlic

Rinse potatoes, cut bad parts from potatoes if needed.

Peel, rinse, chop onions and garlic.

Rinse and chop chives.

Pierce potatoes down the middle, and 3 times across with a paring knife. Don't go all the way through. You want to keep the potatoes together. This will hold the rest of ingredients in.

Place potatoes on a microwave safe plate and cook for 4 - 5 minutes.

Cook bacon to desired crispness. Remove bacon from pan and place on a paper towel lined plate.

Remove potatoes from microwave.

Add desired fixings, omit sour cream.

Wrap potatoes with aluminum foil and place on a cooking sheet. Place under the broiler or on the grill.

Broil or grill for 20 - 40 minutes or until done.

Be careful unwrapping the potatoes, the foil may be hot.

To serve:  Transfer to plate. Top with sour cream if desired.

Serves 4.
