Prep Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: 45 minutes
Makes: 4


  1. 2 Russett potatoes (about 1 lb/500 g)
  2. 1/3 cup (75 mL) light sour cream
  3. 1/4 tsp (1 mL) each salt and pepper
  4. 1/2 cup (125 mL) shredded Cheddar cheese
  5. 4 slices Sensations by Compliments Thick Centre Cut Dry-Cured Bacon, cooked and finely chopped
  6. 2 tbsp (30 mL) finely chopped fresh chives, divided
  7. 1 Compliments Maple Grilling Plank, prepared according to package directions


  1. Preheat grill to medium-high. Wash and scrub potatoes; prick all over with fork. Microwave on high, turning once, 8 to 10 min. until potatoes can be easily pierced with a fork. When cool enough to handle, cut each potato in half lengthwise. Scoop flesh into bowl, leaving 1/2-in./1-cm thick potato "shells".
  2. Mash the scooped-out potato flesh with sour cream, salt and pepper. Stir 1/4 cup (60 mL) cheese, bacon and 4 tsp (20 mL) chives. Fill potato skins. Top with remaining cheese. Arrange on plank and place on grill. Close lid and cook 12 to 15 min.; or until cheese melts and potato is heated through. Garnish with remaining chives to serve.
