Here is a recipe that was given to me from a friend I work with. It was handed down to him from his Mother who received it from her mother. If you have any of these left over, they make great hashbrowns.

Rick’s Grandmother’s Onion-Baked Potato

1 baking potato per person

1 yellow onion, cut in thin, round slices

1/2 teaspoon butter per potato

Salt, to taste

Pepper, to taste

Make a lengthwise slit in each potato, being careful not to cut potato in half. Use knife to crack potato slightly and “break” it open. Cut round slices of onion in half. Place one-half of each onion slice into slit in potato, straight edge down. Add butter on top of onion. Sprinkle with salt and pepper, as desired. Wrap onion-filled potato in heavy-duty aluminum foil. Bake at 350 degrees in oven or smoker for 45 to 60 minutes.

Note: Grate leftover baked potatoes the next day for hash browns.

Give these a try and let us know how you liked them.
