Planked Stuffed Potatoes

Looking down on stuffed potato skins sitting on a plank sitting on a cooling rack.

Cooking stuffed potatoes is made a lot easier when you use a plank to cook them on, both protecting them from burning, adding an additional flavor, and providing support when lifting and moving.

There are a wide variety of planks to choose from, yet all work well. Although it is always recommended to soak them if you forget it isn’t a major setback and you can use them dry.

At first, the recipe may seem to be a little simple but no additional changes are needed, the result is an amazing flavor with a great balance. Selecting quality ingredients, especially the bacon and cheese however does have an impact on the final result.

Ingredients

  • 3 large russet potatoes washed and scrubbed
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/2 sweet onion diced
  • 1 cup cottage cheese
  • 2 cups grated cheddar cheese
  • 2 tablespoons sea salt or Kosher salt
  • 8 rashes bacon fried until crisp, cooled, and crumbed
  • 1/2 cup sour cream to garnish
  • 2 spring onions thinly sliced to garnish

Equipment

  • plank
  • large bowl
  • saute pan

Directions

  • Oven-roast or grill the potatoes for 40 to 60 minutes at 350 degrees F (280 degrees C) until a knife or toothpick can pierce the potatoes and easily be removed. Take the potatoes off the heat, and allow them to cool until they are easy to handle.
  • Cut the potatoes in half lengthwise. Using a spoon, scoop out the flesh, leaving enough attached to the skin so the potato has some structure.
  • Place the potato flesh in a large bowl. Place the potatoes skin side down evenly spaced on a presoaked cooking plank.
  • Melt the butter in a sauté pan on low to medium heat. Add the onions and cook until softened, 5 to 15 minutes.
  • Using a fork, stir the onions into the potato filling, then mash the potatoes. Add the cottage cheese, cheddar cheese, and salt then mix thoroughly. Adjust the seasoning, as necessary.
  • Scoop this filling into the potato skins on the plank.
    Tip: You can make the potatoes ahead to this point, and then chill them until you’re ready to finish them at your cookout.
  • Prepare your grill for cooking on medium heat. Set the plank on the grill with the stuffed potatoes on top. Close the lid and plank-roast the potatoes for 20 to 30 minutes.
  • Remove the stuffed potatoes from the grill when the cheese is melted. Serve on individual plates and garnish with bacon bits, sour cream, and spring onions.
