Ingredients Add to grocery list

Fried Gator:
2 pounds gator tail cut into chunks
salt and pepper
16 ounce vegetable oil

Baked Grilled potatoes:
4 potatoes
1/2 pound butter

Potato sauce:
1 sweet onion, chopped
1 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup sour cream
salt and pepper
2 cups grated cheese, optional





In a large bowl, toss the gator chunks into the buttermilk, and dredge with flour that has been seasoned with salt and pepper.  Using a large skillet, heat oil to 350 degrees and fry gator chunks until golden brown, approximately 4 to 5 minutes.

In a bowl, combine all of the ingredients to make the potato sauce, and mix well.

Wash and coat potatoes with a little bit of oil.  Pierce each potato with a fork, wrap in tin foil, place directly on hot coals, and cook for approximately 45 minutes.  Use tongs to turn potatoes often.  Split potatoes and top with butter and potato sauce.  Top potatoes with two pieces of fried gator chunks on top and sprinkle with cheese if desired.
