Loaded Brisket Baked Potato

Looking for a different twist on the standard "meat and potatoes?" Take a look at our very popular loaded baked potato recipe complete with Crossbuck's Texas-style, low n' slow smoked brisket. Whenever we feature these on the "Specials" menu in our restaurant, they sell out about as quickly as we can make them.

Cooking the Potatoes

  1. Preheat oven to 350° F
  2. Rinse and clean the 4 large potatoes with water
  3. Pierce the potatoes with a fork in variety of spots about 4 times
  4. Wrap each potato in aluminum foil
  5. Cook the potatoes for about 45 minutes to an hour*
  6. Pull the potatoes out of the oven and allow them to rest for a minute or two

* The potato is properly baked if you squeeze it and it feels like a ripe avocado.  If you don't know what a ripe avocado feels like...the potato should feel soft enough that if you squeeze it softly, it will leave a small indent with your thumb.  If it's too hard, cook it a little longer.  

Loading the Baked Potato

  1. Slice open each Baked Potato
  2. Add a layer of Butter (1 tablespoon)
  3. Add a layer of Sour Cream (1 tablespoon)
  4. Add the Chopped Crossbuck Brisket (¼ lb.)
  5. Drizzle BBQ Sauce over Brisket (2 tablespoons)
  6. Sprinkle Cheddar Cheese on top (¼ cup)
  7. Garnish with Chives and Red Onion 

Want more Meat than Potatoes?

When choosing a recipe for your loaded baked potato...you have to decide what item you want to be the "Star of the Show."  At Crossbuck BBQ, we often like our signature brisket to be the star, so we will often modify our recipe slightly from a loaded brisket baked potato to a "loaded potato boat."

Brisket Loaded Potato Boats

To convert from loaded baked potatoes to loaded potato boats, make these adjustments to the recipe above.

  1. Cut recipe from 4 Potatoes to 2 Potatoes
  2. When potatoes are done cooking, split each potato into two halves and hollow out the center of each potato to your desired thickness.
  3. Double the amount of Crossbuck Brisket to ½ pound

Voila!  You now have ensured that the Brisket will be the star of the show.
