  • Heat grill to medium heat.
  • Cut potatoes lengthwise in half; scoop out centers, leaving 1/2-inch-thick shells. Discard removed centers or reserve for another use.
  • Mix butter and garlic until blended; brush onto insides and outsides of potato shells.
  • Grill potatoes and franks 7 to 9 min. or until potatoes are crisp and franks are heated through, turning potatoes after 4 min. and turning franks occasionally.
  • Slice franks; spoon into potato shells. Drizzle with barbecue sauce; top with cheese.
  • Grill 1 to 2 min. or until cheese is melted. Top with sour cream and chives.

Special Equipment Needed

Size Wise

Enjoy eating appetizers at a social occasion, but be mindful of portion size so you don’t overdo it on calories.


Instead of grilling the buttered potato shells, you can bake them in a 250ºF oven 15 min. or until crisp. While potatoes are baking, cook franks as directed on package. Slice franks, then fill potato shells as directed. Bake 5 min. or until cheese is melted.

How to Use the Removed Potato Centers

Cool, then refrigerate the removed potato centers. When ready to use, reheat the potatoes, then mash with butter and warm milk. Serve as a side with your favorite cooked meat.

Ratings & Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Real fun dinner. Real fun dinner. Steakhouse russets are too large though for one person. Experiment with your ideal potato size.
