You know I love smoked meat if you follow this blog. However, there is a drawback to smoked meat. It is hard to do a side dish at low and slow temperatures.
This recipe is a very easy way to make some potatoes while you’re doing a low and slow cook. It is embaressingly easy but tasty.
Just take a roasting pan or pie plate and generously butter the bottom with butter.
Cube potatoes and put them in the pan. Sprinkle the cubes with your favourite seasoning blend (I used my homemade Cajun Seasoning for this batch).
Put foil over the pan and put in a 230 to 250 F (110 to 115 C) smoker for 2 hours. I made these with my Traeger Timberline while cooking ribs and rib tips.
Remove the foil and grate your favourite cheese over the top (I used a nice Emmenthal) and then sprinkle chopped green onions over the top. Smoke for 15 minutes longer to melt the cheese.
Serve with your smoked creation!
These are soft and creamy with a cheesy hit that makes them great. If you are looking for an easy side dish with your next smoked meal, try these!
