      I love, love, love this orginal idea!! My only gripe about the recipe was all of the added fat from the butter and oil. I followed the potato/onion prep, but I made some adjustments on the fats. I rubbed the entire skin of the potato with my favorite EVOO before slicing. Then, I dotted a tiny bit of unsalted Irish butter between each slit for flavor (1 tsp total). After folding the foil packet I poured in 1 T of my favorite chicken stock and sealed the packet. Great flavor for more than half of the fat & calories!

      Forgo the Foil - don't steam the skin
      I have found that the secret is to make them like my Pops used to.
      poke the tate in spots -- rub the outside with white bacon drippins and salt w/ coarse kosher or sea salt.
      Best tasting potato anywhere, including the best steakhouses.
