It’s the simple things in life. Meat and potatoes. Is there anything better? The team at Mighty Flame would argue that no, in fact, there is not anything better. Whether it’s a burger and fries, over-easy eggs and hash browns, or a steak and baked potatoes, there’s really just nothing quite like it.

In today’s blog, we’d like to focus solely on crafting yourself the perfect potato. It’s the perfect complement to pretty much anything you can throw on your grill and it deserves a bit of extra attention. If you’re yearning for a delicious potato recipe, we have you covered, so keep reading to learn more!

Our Delicious Grilled “Baked” Potato Recipe

For this particular recipe, the classic russet potato is the star of the show. Here’s the list of ingredients you’ll need:

  • Russet potato
  • Salted butter
  • Olive oil
  • Sea salt
  • Fresh black pepper

And that’s all there is to it. The beautify of this recipe lies fully in its simplicity. It’s small on ingredients but massive on flavor, making it the perfect complement for everything from bratwursts to New York Strips or even salmon.

Start by preheating your grill to medium-high heat on two of your burners. Hopefully you have plenty of propane (and if not, swing by a Mighty Flame propane cylinder exchange location near you and grab one), because we’re sure you’ll absolutely love this recipe.

At this point you can use a fork and poke a handful of holes in each potato you’re grilling. Next, you’ll simply brush your potatoes with olive oil, then go ahead and wrap each potato tightly in tinfoil.

It’s Time to Grill

From here, you can throw your potatoes on the grill. Now there are a couple of different approaches you can take here. If you prefer a nice crispy peel on your potato, go ahead and throw it directly on top of the heat for about half an hour. Alternatively, if you prefer a soft peel, cook it over indirect heat for about 50 minutes.

When you’re ready to eat, roughly (or as we like to call it rustically) chop your potato into quarters, then go ahead and mash it down. Load it up with butter, sea salt, and freshly cracked black pepper. It’s as simple as that.

Chow Down!

From here, you can garnish in any darned way you please. Some chives make a great addition, as does a bit of worcestershire sauce rained down over top of your potato. This grilled “baked” potato, as we previously mentioned, goes great with pretty much anything and it’s a breeze to make. Having a steak? This is a great side. How about a fancy grilled fish dinner? This potato works for that too.

And of course, if you’re wondering where to refill a propane tank, there are a number of Mighty Flame locations across the Eastern United States, so swing on by on your way to the grocery store, pick up some potatoes and whatever the heck else sounds good tonight, and get to grilling. We can pretty much guarantee you’ve found your new favorite potato recipe!
