Grilling season is in full swing at our house and that means Grilled Potato Skins! I’m sharing this recipe in partnership with The Produce Gathering, all thoughts and opinions are my own.
Now, let’s get to these Grilled Potato Skins.
The only thing better than potato skins is Grilled Potato Skins. I can’t begin to tell you how much I love grilled potatoes. We decided to make our grilled potato skins with our produce from The Produce Gathering, they actually paired perfectly with our steaks.
I decided to warm the potatoes up in the oven first, you can warm them up in the microwave too. At this point, you just want to get them soft enough to cut them in half and then scoop out the inside. I like to save the insides and make mashed potatoes, but you can do whatever you want to with the inside.
Once I have that scooped out, I mix together a little bit of olive oil and garlic salt, then I rub it on each of the skins. When that is done, we put them on the grill on medium-high heat for about 5-10 minutes until crispy. Lastly, it’s all about the toppings.
A few of our favorites include sour cream, cheese, chives, and even BBQ chicken. There always has to be bacon too in our family, it’s just necessary. I’m even thinking of topping them with grilled corn salsa too! How delicious does that sound? Not to mention healthy too!
Right now you can pick up your produce at The Produce Gathering and they are now offering a completely organic option too. We like to pick up the family size produce basket, it typically last us over a week. The sale is every other week, so I’m normally running low just about the time another sale comes up.
Are you ready for these Grilled Potato Skins? It’s time to fire up the grill!

These look and sound fabulous! I’m not much of a cook, but every once in a while I attempt a new recipe. Potato skins are a family favorite. I’m bookmarking this blog post to try out.
Yay! I hope you enjoy them!

I love using my grill and have never thought of grilling potato skins. We are having a cookout this weekend and I will be making these to go with our burgers. Such an incredibly simple and delicious recipe.
I hope you enjoy them, they are super tasty!
Wow, never thought about grilling potato skins! Sounds so nice and crispy. And of course I love to pile up all those toppings… 🙂

I love potato skins. Who doesn’t? I have never grilled them before though. I love that you have a local online produce co op. My sister-in-law participated in one near us. I have no idea how she found it, but I loved that she would share with me and it was so fun because there was so many things to try.

There is a new burger chain here in NZ that has started doing potato skins and I tried them and wasn’t a fan as they were so greasy! These ones look delicious though since they are grilled rather than fried. Also love seeing the sour cream on the top, you can’t beat sour cream on wedges and potato skins!

My family loves potatoes with almost everything so I think this would go good with our dinner tonight. My daughter loves twice baked potatoes so I think she would really enjoy this as well. I will have to try and make mine look as pretty as yours do but I may just eat the evidence if they don’t turn out as pretty. It’s a win win!
They are so yummy! I hope you enjoy them. We love twice baked potatoes too!

Wow! looks delicious. you have given me an idea on how to use the potatoes. i will have to try the grilled potato
I hope you enjoy it!
These look so delicious! I try to do most of my cooking on the grill in the summer to keep the temperature in the house lower. Potato skins are such a good, healthier snack too. And filling!
I haven’t had a baked potato in about a year. I have never grilled one … ever! These look so delicious. I am having these instead of the traditional mashed potato for dinner tonight. Yum, yum!
I hope you enjoy them, we love them!
