Accordion Potatoes

I found a new way to make cheesy baked potatoes – Accordion Style! This side dish is loaded with cheese and makes for a perfect side to go along with some grilled flank steak. Simple to make but oh so good.Wash and scrub the potatoes thoroughly. Slice some good parmesan cheese, make sure the slices are really thin as you are going to insert into the potato. Cut each potato crosswise into thin slices. Do not cut all the through the bottom. Put the potatoes in a baking pan and drizzle with melted butter. Now carefully insert the sliced cheese into the potato. You can do each slice or every other one. I did every other one and they turned out excellent. Season with salt and pepper.

Cover pan with foil and grill for about 1 hour at 400 degrees. Remove the foil and sprinkle the tops with shredded cheddar cheese. Grill for 5 more minutes or until cheese is melted.

Transfer to a plate and enjoy. Cheers!


Large baking potatoes – 4
4 T melted butter
1/4 lb parmesan cheese. sliced thin
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese


Position a potato lengthwise with a pencil or chopstick on either side of it. (The pencils or chopsticks will be your cutting guides.) Using a sharp knife, cut each potato crosswise into thin slices, being careful not to cut all the way through the bottom: The pencils should stop your knife from cutting too deep.

Cut the parmesan cheese into 2-inch wide slices. Cut each slice into very thin slices.
Put the potatoes in a baking dish, cut-side up. Drizzle them with the melted butter. Using the thin slices of parmesan cheese, stud each slice or every other slice in the potatoes.
Season generously with salt and pepper
Cover the baking pan with foil and position on the grill grate and bake the potatoes for about 1 hour, or until they are tender.(400 Degrees)
Take off the foil and sprinkle the tops evenly with the cheese and bake for 5 minutes more, or until the cheese is melted and golden.
Transfer the potatoes to a platter or plates and garnish with the chopped chives, if desired.
