Show Stopper Steak Potatoes with French Onion Sour Cream

A big time flavor tater coated in Montreal Style Steak Seasoning, cooked in a special way for crispy skin, and then topped with a french onion sour cream.

Baked potatoes can be a staple weeknight meal, they are quick and require little to no brain power.  A while ago I researched the proper way to cook a baked potato and it turns out I was doing it way wrong. 


I’ve never been a fan of bakers in the past because they just always seemed so bland and mushy but after some trial and error, I figured it out. Skip the foil, coat the potato in oil and seasonings, and then crank the oven high.That’s how it’s done apparently. With this technique you will have a fluffy, sweet tater with a crisp salty skin, just like in a steakhouse.


Montreal Style Steak Seasoning is the show stopper ingredient here! Montreal Style Seasoning is very salt heavy so if you decide to try a different spice mix on these, make sure you add ample course salt.



Show Stopper Steak Potatoes with French Onion Sour Cream

Serves 2-4


A big time flavor tater coated in Montreal Style Steak Seasoning, cooked in a special way for crispy skin, and then topped with a french onion sour cream.



Ingredients

4 small to medium Russet Potatoes*

1 teaspoon Vegetable Oil

3/4 teaspoon Montreal Style Steak Seasoning, divided**

1/2 cup Sour Cream

1/2 cup French Onion Dip

Fresh chopped Parsley, green onion, or chives (optional)



Instructions

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.


Rub the potatoes with oil and 1/2 teaspoon seasoning. Do not prick potatoes with a fork or wrap with foil.


Bake for 40 to 50 minutes on a baking sheet. Bake time will depend on the size of your potatoes.


In the meantime, combine french onion dip and sour cream together in a small bowl.


When potatoes are finished, cut a slit down the middle and break up the insides a bit. Top with as much or as little sour cream mixture as you like. Sprinkle with remaining seasoning and fresh herbs. Serve immediately.



Notes

*Small potatoes are best for this. They bake a shorter time so that the spices do not burn.


*Montreal Style Steak Seasoning is very salt heavy. If using a different type of seasoning blend, mix it half and half with course salt.


Serves 2 as a main course or 4 as a side dish.
