Traeger Grill Recipe - SALT CRUSTED BAKED POTATOES

Salty and crisp on the outside, warm and creamy on the inside. Finish these potatoes with a dollop of butter and your toppings of choice

  • 3 russet potatoes, scrubbed and dried

  • 1 1/2 Tablespoon canola oil

  • 1/2 Tablespoon kosher salt

  • butter

  • sour cream

  • Chives, fresh

  • Bacon Bits

  • cheddar cheese

     
     
    In a large bowl, coat the potatoes in canola oil and sprinkle heavily with salt.
     
    When ready to cook, set Traeger temperature to 450℉ and preheat, lid closed for 15 minutes.
    Grill: 450 ˚F
     
    Place the potatoes directly on the grill grate and bake for 30-40 minutes, or until soft in the middle when pricked with a fork. Serve loaded with your favorite toppings. Enjoy!

Re: Traeger Grill Recipe - SALT CRUSTED BAKED POTATOES

I already made those and they are delicious.

 

 

The best potato recipe is also on Traeger, cut the potatoes in slices but not through so you still have the potato intact, use a wooden spoon along side the potato to achieve this while cutting.

 

Uses cream, cheese, garlic and not sure what else but the recipe is there.

 

Oh my, those are truly the best potatoes you can make on a grill.

 

Maybe somebody can look it up and post.

 

I love this grill and somebody else must love it too, it was almost stolen right on the patio but foruntely it's chained and the ring is cemented in.  Couldn't go too far and yes, they were on RING but forgot to smile for the camera.

We have done those on a Rec Tec  and yep they are fabulous...yumo.  But I go overboard on the butter. More like half a stick on mine...

That's how I always make my baked potatoes, but in my oven.  They are delicious.

That's how I do all oven-baked potatoes, too.

 

Wash and let them dry, rub  with a little oil, coat with coarse salt and let them sit for a long time, even before putting in oven.  Same with baked sweet potatoes.

@Just Bling  - I tried to find your recipe on the Traeger website, but didn't find it. There are alot of recipes posted on that site , so I've bookmarked it to go back and pull more recipes to post when I have more time. 

 

Thanks to everyone for their suggestions and feedback - much appreciated!

@Chi-town girl these are usually called hasselback potatoes. Maybe they're called that on that site?
