  • 4 Farmer's Promise Russet potatoes, scrubbed and pierced with a fork
  • Olive oil
  • Salt & pepper, to taste
  • Garlic powder, to taste
  • Optional toppings: butter, chives, sour cream, cheese, bacon bits


  • Wash potatoes. Use a fork to prick holes on all sides of the potatoes.
  • Wrap potatoes individually in damp paper towels. Microwave potatoes on high, one at a time, until tender (about 7minutes). Remove paper towel and allow potatoes to rest until cool enough to handle.
  • Slice each potato in half lengthwise. Brush or rub all sides of the potatoes with 1-2 teaspoons olive oil. Sprinkle with salt, pepper and garlic powder, to taste.
  • Preheat a grill (or indoor grill pan)over medium-high heat. Grill the potatoes flesh-side down, about 5 minutes, until there are visible grill marks. Flip potatoes over and place on upper rack of the grill (indirect heat) to keep them warm and to allow the skin a chance to get crispy, about 5 minutes. Remove from grill and finish potatoes with optional toppings.
