Twice Baked Potatoes

How to make Twice Baked Potatoes on the grill

Chef Tom fires up the Yoder Smokers YS640s Pellet Grill for his loaded twice baked potatoes, the side dish that steals the show!

Twice Baked Potatoes

Yield: 8 servings


For the filling:
For topping:
  • 2 oz sharp cheddar cheese, grated
  • 8 oz bacon, cooked, crumbled
  • Green onions or chives, for topping



Preheat your Yoder Smokers YS640 pellet smoker to 400ºF, set up for indirect grilling. 
Place the potatoes on a sheet pan. Coat the potatoes in a thin layer of Saica Sicilian Extra Virgin Olive Oil, then season with the Cattleman’s Grill Trail Dust All Purpose Seasoning.
Place the pan of potatoes on the second shelf or the grill and cook until tender all the way through, about 60-90 minutes. Remove from the grill.
Slice the potatoes lengthwise along the top. Squeeze the ends of the potatoes to open them enough to access the flesh of the potatoes. Scoop out the majority of the flesh, leaving a thin layer attached to the skin. Leave the skins on the sheet pan.
In the bowl of a stand mixer, combine the flesh of the potatoes, the butter, half-and-half, sour cream and Cattleman’s Grill Trail Dust All Purpose Seasoning. Whip the potato filling with a paddle attachment until creamy. Taste and adjust seasoning, as needed.

Scoop the filling back into the potato skins. Divide the grated cheddar among the potatoes, pressing it into the top of the filling. Return the pan to the grill. Cook another 20-30 minutes, until the cheese is totally melted and filling just begins to brown on the edges.
Top each potato with crumbled cooked bacon, green onions and sour cream.
Serve the Twice Baked Potatoes immediately, or hold warm for service.
