Recipe Servings


4 medium russet baking potatoes, washed

1/4 cup Land O Lakes® Butter, melted

2 teaspoons finely chopped fresh garlic

8 (3/4-ounce) slices Land O Lakes® Sharp Cheddar American Blend, each cut into 6 pieces

2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh chives

Kosher salt, if desired

Fresh ground pepper, if desired


Heat one side of gas grill to high or charcoal grill until coals are ash white. Place coals to one side in charcoal grill.

Slice thin piece off bottom of each potato. Cut each potato into 12 slices, cutting almost to bottom. (Do not cut all the way through.)

Place potatoes onto plate; microwave 5 minutes. Rotate potatoes; microwave 5 minutes.

Place each potato onto center of 14x12-inch piece heavy-duty aluminum foil.

Combine melted butter and garlic in bowl; brush evenly over potatoes and into slices.

Bring up sides of foil, forming pouch to enclose potato. Seal well. Place onto grill opposite heat. Grill 30-40 minutes or until tender.

Remove from grill. Carefully open foil; place 1 piece cheese into each potato slice. Reseal; continue grilling 4-6 minutes or until cheese is melted.

Sprinkle each potato with 1 1/2 teaspoons chives before serving. Season with salt and pepper, if desired.

Recipe Tip

Use nonstick heavy-duty aluminum foil to prevent sticking.
