Smashed Panini Potatoes!!

My friend Sharon shared this meal idea earlier this week during our early morning walk!  You will need a Panini grill, or a George Foreman Grill  to make this work really well.   

Step 1:  Turn on your griddle to medium high heat. Cook several whole potatoes (skin on) in a pressure cooker (fastest way), or bake them in the oven. 

2. After the potatoes are cooked, cut them in half, then into quarters, but don't cut through the skin all the way.  Open it up, and flatten it out slightly, so that you can transfer it to the grill.  Salt and pepper the potato, add a thick slice (or 2) of onion, and slices of fresh jalapeno (optional).  Then close the lids, and grill it for 2-3 minutes, or until onion browns. 

3. Slide the potato onto a plate, and drizzle mustard and ketchup over it.  We had some Sloppy Joe Lentils that we put on the potato.  Next time we'll try ketchup!

Sharon, this is a winner!
