  • Heat grill to medium heat.
  • Cut potatoes in half lengthwise and spoon out the flesh, leaving half-inch shells. Mix garlic and melted butter. Brush potatoes on both sides with garlic butter mixture.
  • Grill franks 7 to 9 min. or until heated through, turning occasionally; slice into rounds. Grill potatoes until crisp, about 4 to 4-1/2 min. on each side.
  • Spoon sliced franks into the potato shells; drizzle with barbecue sauce and top with cheese. Grill until the cheese is melted. Top with sour cream and chives.

Size-Wise

Enjoy your favorite foods on occasion but remember to keep tabs on portions.

Alternative Cooking Method

If you prefer, bake the buttered potato skins in a 250ºF oven until crisp, about 15 min., before adding the toppings. Fill as directed and bake 5 min. more.

Creative Leftovers

Save the scooped out potatoes for another use, such as mashing with milk and butter.

    Real fun dinner. Steakhouse russets are too large though for one person. Experiment with your ideal potato size.

    Needed a hurry up supper for week-night. Just baked big 'ol potatos in oven then cut in half. Topped with dogs that I cut into bites & saute'd on stove top and just topped the potatos without scooping out. Was tasty, hearty & best of all easy.
