Twice Baked Potatoes on the Char-Broil Big Easy

Note: This recipe was developed using the Char-Broil Big Easy Oil-Less Fryer. If you are cooking using the Char-Broil Smoker-Roaster Grill you should cook with the lid open and the temperature set to High. You might also need to adjust the cooking time.

These twice-baked potatoes made on the Char-Broil Big Easy were absolutely fantastic. I was already a big mashed potato fan before these came along. Now, I can’t get enough of them. The potatoes by themselves are divine. Creamy, smooth, tasty. Add a little rosemary for that special difference from ‘plain old’ potatoes. Top with cheese and you’ve got the perfect side dish.

Twice Baked Potatoes on the Char-Broil Big Easy

You can use any mashed potato recipe you like when making twice baked potatoes on the Char-Broil Big Easy. It just so happens that I’m a huge fan of this version despite having a number of variations in my recipe box. I think it’s about as perfect as can be.

If you don’t already have one (or two), get yourself a bunk bed basket for your Big Easy. It will double the amount of cooking space you have.

Twice Baked Potatoes on the Char-Broil Big Easy

Absolutely fantastic baked potatoes. I prefer to use disposable mini-meatloaf pans for this recipe. They fit into the Big Easy perfectly and are easy to handle. If you heat more than two mini pans at a time you'll need a Bunk Bed basket.

Ingredients

  • 4 medium russet potatoes
  • ½ cup butter
  • cup milk
  • 2 tablespoons sour cream
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 tablespoons fresh rosemary minced, or substitute 1 teaspoon dried
  • cup cheddar cheese shredded
  • 1 green onion sliced

Instructions

  • Fill a medium pot fitted with a steaming basket with a few inches of water. Place over high heat and bring to a boil.
  • Scrub the potatoes and chop into 1/2" cubes, leaving the skin on if desired. Transfer to the steaming pot and cover.
  • Steam the potatoes for 10-15 minutes or until tender when poked with a fork.
  • Drain the potatoes in a colander. Empty the water from the pot and wipe dry. Return to the stove but turn off the burner.
  • Add the butter to the pot and let it start softening. Then add the potatoes.
  • Use a potato masher to mash the potatoes while adding the milk. Don't add all of the milk unless you need it. Add just enough to get them the consistency you are looking for. A thicker mashed potato will stay on the cedar plank. A thinner mashed potato will have a tendency to run off the plank, so aim for a thicker version.
  • Stir in the sour cream, garlic and rosemary.
  • Fire up your Big Easy.
  • Mound the potatoes into mini-meatloaf pans and add the cheese and green onion. Grill for 20 minutes or until the cheese is melted and the potatoes are hot. Note: You can test them by inserting an instant-read thermometer into the middle of the potatoes.
  • Note: If you are using refrigerated potatoes, heat them for 10 minutes in the Big Easy without the cheese and green onion first. Then, add the cheese and onion and heat another 20 minutes.

Notes

I found these potatoes to be best when made the day before. Then, the next stay, just spoon them into the meatloaf tins, add the cheese and onion, and heat on the Big Easy.

Baby Potatoes on the Char-Broil Big Easy

Note: This recipe was developed using the Char-Broil Big Easy Oil-Less Fryer. If you are cooking using the Char-Broil Smoker-Roaster Grill you should cook with the lid open and the temperature set to High. You might also need to adjust the cooking time.

I absolutely love roasted baby potatoes. They taste almost like whipped butter, with a fantastic creamy insides. But my favorite part is that crispy skin that pops when you bite into it. The Char-Broil Big Easy cooks up baby potatoes perfectly, and in no time at all. No pre-boiling is required. Just toss them with some oil, salt and pepper and garlic and into the cooker they go!

Bunk Bed Baskets Make Life Easier

Although you can cook a few baby potatoes on the rack that comes with the Char-Broil Big Easy, you really want to add a bunk bed basket (or two) so you can cook more at once. If you prefer a potato with a little bit of spicy kick to it try my Fire-Eater potatoes also made on the Big Easy.

To make these potatoes on the Char-Broil Big Easy I used a bunk bed basket. It lets me double or even triple the amount of cooking space I have.

Baby potatoes have such a wonderful creamy sweetness to them. I love them roasted so the skin gets just a bit crispy. They pop when you bite into them. The Big Easy is the perfect cooker for making a lot of things, and these Fire-Eater potatoes on the Char-Broil Big Easy are just one of them. Roasted potatoes hit with a nice seasoning mix that brings a little heat to offset the sweetness.

Fire-Eater Potatoes on the Char-Broil Big Easy

You can substitute any rub or seasoning mix you desire, but you might want to shy away from any that contain a lot of sugar which might burn in high heat. These Fire-Eater potatoes on the Char-Broil Big Easy do cook quickly since they are smaller, but keep an eye on them if you do use a sweeter spice mix. For a little more mellow (but still super yummy!) potato using the Big Easy, try my roasted baby potatoes.
