A jacketpotato is always very tasty and is regularly preferred by me over fries when I go out to eat. Great with a nice steak, a little lighter and fresher than fries with mayo and therefore the ideal side dish. And you can also easily make your own jacket potatoes on the BBQ. Take your time and use the last 10 minutes to grill a delicious steak.
- 4 medium-sized Floury Potatoes
- 2 Spring Onions
- 4 tablespoons Creme Fraîche
- 2 Garlic cloves
- Olive Oil
- Coarse Sea Salt
- Freshly ground Black Pepper
- BBQ with Lid
- Aluminum Foil
- Scrub the potatoes clean and place each one on its own piece of aluminum foil large enough to wrap the potatoes. Drizzle each potato with olive oil. Squeeze the garlic cloves and spread this over the potatoes. Finally, sprinkle the potatoes with a little coarse sea salt and then wrap them.
- Fire up the BBQ, aiming for indirect heat and a temperature of about 200 degrees Celsius (392 Fahrenheit).
- When the BBQ is hot, the potatoes may be placed on the grill. Let them cook for 50 minutes to an hour and then check with a skewer whether the potatoes are well done. If they are, remove them from the BBQ.
- Cut the spring onions into thin rings. Half unwrap the potatoes so that the top half of the baked potato is visible. Now cut the potatoes to about an inch from the bottom and press the opening open slightly.
- Put a spoonful of crème fraîche in each opening, then sprinkle with some freshly ground black pepper and the spring onion rings. Serve wrapped in the aluminum foil. Enjoy your meal!
