Matt Dunigan Grilled Potato Skins with Corn Relish -CCC

Boy was hubby pleased that I joined in the Cooking Club Challenge for June.

Link to CCC..

Since I was already planning to barbeque some spareribs, why not throw some potato and corn on the grill at the same time and participate?

I am trying to watch calories so I left off the bacon, and I didn’t have the avocado but substituted roasted red pepper in the relish ( hence my photo recipe name change without avocado in the title).

I grilled the corn for the relish which added more smokey flavor. I oven broiled the potatoes a bit at the very end because I got some barbeque sauce on them from the spareribs and they did not brown as I would have liked. The barbeque sauce was good on them.

This is a grill recipe I know we will enjoy for years to come. It went great with the grilled spareribs and I got to use some fresh garden cilantro and the last of my frozen garden corn from last summer.
All I can add is yum!

Matt Dunigan Grilled Potato Skins with Avocado Corn Relish

  • 4 x Large russet potatoes washed, skin on
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 cups mixed grated cheese provolone and cheddar
  • 1 cup cooked crispy bacon drained and crumbled
  • 1/2 cup chopped scallions
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • Salt and pepper to taste
    Preheat BBQ to 325°F (162°C) medium low. Leave two burners on and one burner off. Oil the grill to prevent sticking.
    Rub potatoes with 1 tablespoon (15ml) of the olive oil and prick all over with a fork. Place potatoes over indirect heat for 40-50 minutes or until the potatoes are fully cooked.
    Remove from the grill and cool.
    Using a sharp serrated knife slice the potato in half lengthwise. Using a spoon, scoop out the insides leaving a ½ inch boarder of potato on the skin.
    Season with salt and pepper to taste and drizzle with oil paying close attention to the rim of the potato (the ½ inch border). Sprinkle the cheese and bacon equally among the potatoes.
    Preheat BBQ to medium high heat 375°F (190°C). Oil grill to prevent sticking. Place potato skins cheese side up on the grill.
    Close the lid, and allow potatoes to cook for 7-8 minutes or until the cheese is bubbling and the skin is crispy.
    Remove from BBQ. Top with scallions, sour cream and salsa if desired.

    What Spice Are You

    You Are Cilantro

    The bad news is that
    there are some people
    who can't stand you.
    The good news is that
    most people love you more
    than anything else in the world.
    You are distinct, unusual, fresh,
    and very controversial.
    And you wouldn't have it
    any other way.
