Baking the potatoes in the oven first ensures that the centres are fluffy and tender, while a quick turn on the grill lends a crispy finish and smoky flavour.

Ingredients

Green Onion Sour Cream:
  • 1/3 cup sour cream
  • 2 green onions minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
Potatoes:
  • 3 baking potatoes (such as russet)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • pinch olive oil

Method

Potatoes: Using fork, prick potatoes all over. Bake in 400°F (200°C) oven, turning once, until tender, 50 to 60 minutes. Set aside until cool enough to handle. (Make-ahead: Let cool completely; refrigerate in airtight container for up to 3 days.)

Halve potatoes lengthwise; brush cut sides with oil and sprinkle with salt. Place, cut sides down, on greased grill over medium heat; grill, uncovered, turning once, until grill-marked, about 15 minutes.

Green Onion Sour Cream:
While potatoes are cooking, in small bowl, stir together sour cream, green onions and pepper. (Make-ahead: Refrigerate in airtight container for up to 3 days.) Serve with potatoes.

Tip from The Test Kitchen:
Don't want to heat your oven? Bake the pricked potatoes on the indirect heat of your grill. Place on 1 rack of 2-burner barbecue or on centre rack of 3-burner barbecue. Heat surrounding burner(s) to medium-high heat (about 375°F/190°C); close lid and grill, turning once, until potatoes are tender, 50 to 60 minutes.
