Want glorious potatoes, creamy on the inside, golden on the outside, without turning on your oven? You will when you get a look at these amazing Cedar Plank Potatoes. Mashed potatoes get amped up with a good helping of roasted garlic (also cooked on the grill if you want), fresh herbs and cream cheese. They’re grilled golden on a cedar plank and can be fully prepped ahead, making them fantastic for entertaining. But nobody needs to wait for that, right?
What spurred me to these luscious little domes? My new Napoleon grill of course. My husband and I recently upgraded our backyard with a deck and outdoor gas fireplace. As luck would have it, some of the more expensive items came in under budget. This left a little cash for the frills, like furniture and new grill. We decided upon a Napoleon LEX grill, which has been amazing so far. I love it because it gets crazy hot, has a smoker accessory and searing burner. Napoleon Grills also have a great user friendly website with numerous recipes, and that’s where I found this great recipe. I couldn’t wait to try them, and you won’t want to wait either.
I have to say, I didn’t really know how bad my old grill was until I fired up my new one. We had the old one for at least 10 years, maybe longer. A couple of parts had been replaced along the way and I figured it still had some life left. I’m sure it did, but not a very good one comparatively to the new grill. I guess we all adapt to what we know and sometimes don’t know any different, as was the case for me. Today I give thanks to my wonderful husband for persuading me to purchase a new one.
