    Saw a thread about bacon wrapped potatos and had to try them.
    I nuked some potatos to give them a head start, then cut them and hollowed them out a bit.
    Took what I scooped out and added some bleu cheese, then added it all back to the shells - lidded them then wrapped in bacon...

    Threw them on the Egg for a while...

    Gave a steak a little salt and pepper -

    6 minutes later....

    After a 5 minute wait.....

    The potatos are terribly visually appealing, but they were darn tasty.

    Thanks - the outside looks good, it's the inside that is bland looking - I was hoping for more of a difference with the cheese, but bleu isn't really that colorful huh?

    I must say, that has many variations which could be done, and all of them would be great...twice-baked gone to a new level...this looks like a winner to me! Oh, my wheels are turning already!

    Thanks for sharing, ellymae!

    i personaly don't care for blue chz but that is just me. if it were me i'd do pepperjack and green onions. also you could do a little cream chz and some ligtly sauteed asparagus and red bell pepper strips for color.

    Those look incredible! One of the best things about this forum is sparking idea's. I have a great twice baked potato stuffing that should work great for this style of cooking them. Maybe we should call these stuffed potato fatties? I can even see stuffing these with double smoked ham and onion. kind of a scalloped stuffed potato.. Man my gears are churning. How long did you nuke them for?

    Man oh Man those look good ellymae. I like the blue cheese you added to the potatoes I know you could taste it. It might reach out a grab you but it will with it's own flavor thou. Now for your steak you smoked that beautfully and I'm sure it was very tastey too.[​IMG]

    I went 5 minutes - these were small spuds. I pre-ccoked the potatos because I don't like my bacon really crispy - if you do, you you may not want to precook.

    I had 2 potatos left over - I think they will get chopped up and have some eggs added to them for supper...

    Anything wrapped in bacon looks good to my eyes.
