Grilled Twice-Baked Potatoes

4 medium-sized Idaho baking potatoes, scrubbed

4 oz. mascarpone cheese, at room temperature

2/3 to 3/4 cup sour cream

1 cup shredded extra sharp cheddar cheese

4 oz. Pancetta bacon, cooked and crumbled; reserve fat

3 T. minced fresh chives

Salt and pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Poke potatoes several times with fork. Bake potatoes directly on rack in oven for about 1 hour or until soft. Remove from oven and cool until easy to handle.

Preheat grill; clean grates and maintain medium heat, 350 to 375 degrees.

When potatoes are cool enough, cut off upper 1/3 of each potato. Scoop out flesh, leaving 1/4 inch of flesh in each.  Place potato flesh in a large mixing bowl and add mascarpone cheese, sour cream, cheddar cheese, bacon and chives. With hand mixer, beat until well combined and creamy. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Use reserved bacon fat to coat potato shells. Divide mixture between each potato shell. Place filled potatoes on heavy-duty foil over indirect heat. Close lid and cook for 20 minutes or until potato skin is crispy. Let rest for 3 to 5 minutes before serving.
