Grilled Twice Baked Corn Potatoes - 52 Side Dishes from the Grill

Here's something new...

Just a slow night on the grill.  Hamburgers.  So I decided to dress up the side dishes.  I had some leftover ears of corn from the night before.  I really love repurposing leftovers into an all new dish.  Thanks to the microwave, these took only a few minutes to prepare.  While the potatoes were "baking" in the microwave I assembled the remaining ingredients (and prepped my burgers).

So, 15 minutes prep work and then to the grill.

The yellow corn, green chives and red paprika makes these especially pretty as a side.

And of course, anytime you can make bar snacks (Potato Skins) at home it is a fun night.

I used my grill as an oven to second bake the twice baked potatoes.  Indirect heat (Over a section that does not have coals burning, or on a gas grill with that section turned off.  Then while the burgers were cooking the potatoes got that second baked texture.

Easy easy, colorful and VERY TASTY!  Simple Summer Grilling... LOVE IT!

OK... Here's what I did...

Grilled Twice Baked
Corn Potatoes

  • 4 Medium to Large Russet Potatoes
  • 1/2 Cup Sour Cream
  • 1/2 Cup Grated Cheddar Cheese
  • Large Pinch of Salt
  • Several turns of a Pepper Grinder for fresh Cracked Pepper
  • 3 Ears of Leftover Corn on Cob (about 1 Cup) Kernels cut from Cob (can use frozen or canned corn)
  • Generous sprinkle of Chives for Garnish
  • Generous sprinkle of Smoked Paprika for Garnish
Cooking Directions
  1. This recipe is mostly done in advance... First, bake or microwave the potatoes until a fork can be easily inserted and removed.
  2. Allow the potatoes to mostly cool, slice in half lengthwise so the widest part is uncut so the skins will sit flat.
  3. Scoop out the cooked potato, as much as possible without cutting or breaking the skins. Set the skins aside
  4. Mix Sour Cream, Cheddar Cheese, Salt, Pepper and Corn Kernels with the scooped potato and mix to combine.
  5. Put a LARGE Scoop of the Potato mixture into the potato skins
  6. Sprinkle Chives and Paprika over the filled potato boats
  7. Grill over high indirect heat for about 15 minutes (about same time it takes to make some burgers on the grill).
  8. Serve HOT and ENJOY!
