How to Make It

Step 1    

In a medium bowl, combine the butter, 3/4 cup of chives, 1/2 cup of sour cream and the salt and pepper; mix until smooth. Transfer the butter to a large sheet of plastic wrap and form into a log. Wrap and refrigerate until firm, about 1 hour.

Step 2    

Light a gas grill. Using a sharp knife, slice each potato crosswise at 1/3-inch intervals, cutting down but not all the way through the potato. Cut the chive butter into thin slices, then carefully tuck the butter in between the potato slices. Wrap each potato tightly in aluminum foil.

Step 3    

Set the potatoes on the grill over low heat, cover and cook, turning occasionally, until tender, 45 to 50 minutes. Unwrap the potatoes, garnish with finely chopped chives and serve with sour cream.

Make Ahead

The compound butter can be wrapped in plastic and refrigerated for up to 2 days.

Review Body: They are a mess to prep - don't expect the butter to slide into the slits easily. And the butter takes much longer than an hour - maybe 2 or more to harden in the fridge. But even if it's not perfectly pretty when you wrap them up - they are always delicious. And definitely save some of the butter mixture to put on top once they come off the grill. A fantastic side for a grilled steak.
