Cooking outdoors is the perfect way to entertain during this holiday weekend. The scents and sound of cooking on the barbecue create a wonderful appetite for a feast. Another advantage is that cooking on a barbecue means that nobody has to spend time in the kitchen. A good barbecue should be very simple, and only requires good quality embers, seasoned with salt and pepper and perhaps drizzled with a little olive oil.

  • 18 Even-Sized White Potatoes
  • Kosher Salt
  • 3 Cups Mascarpone Cheese
  • 2 Finely Chopped Shallots
  • 1 Clove Garlic (Grated)
  • 1/2 Cup Chopped Basil
  • 1 Teaspoon Kosher Salt
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Freshly Ground Pepper
  1. Wash and dry potatoes. Season with kosher salt. Wrap each potato in foil and puncture each potato several times with a cocktail stick.
  2. Roast potatoes in ashes of barbecue for about 40 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, in medium-size bowl combine mascarpone cheese, shallots, grated garlic, basil, kosher salt, and pepper.
  4. Remove potatoes carefully from barbeque with tongs. Unwrap potatoes and transfer to individual plates. Spoon filling on the side and serve immediately.
  5. Serves 6
  6. "Work With What You Got!"
