Recipe by Pianolady

This is a fantastic way to enjoy crispy potatoes. I love to serve this with my recipe for Full Flavored Steak. I hope you enjoy it! The recipe is from Better Homes & Gardens / Great Cooking For Two.

In an effort to use up a few left over baked potatoes (I did five pounds at once in the crock pot), I came across your recipe and decided to give it a try! Since my potatoes were already done, I melted the butter, garlic salt and pepper in a nonstick skillet on the stove top, then sliced my potatoes in half placing them in the skillet cut side down. Used a bbq brush to baste the outside of the potatoes once in the beginning then just let them sit in the skillet on medium-low while I grilled tequila lime chicken outside. The result was fantastic! They had the crispiness and flavor I was looking for and were heated all the way through without having to wait for them to actually bake. I served them as suggested with sour cream and chives (our favorite way). I will definitely do this again with more already-baked potatoes!
