Hasselback Potatoes

The ingredients are fairly easy when it comes to this side dish- mainly its seasonings! Its probably one of the less extensive side dish options out there and potatoes can be a meal on their own.
 
Honestly between this and melting potatoes, I swear I gain 5 pounds every time I walk in the kitchen (psst- worth it!)
 
They are not hard to make, but they are a bit time consuming because you have to open up every slit and slide in some bacon, but as a side dish, completely worth your time. These potatoes are delicious and hearty to enjoy.

Baked Hasselback Potato Thoughts!

Your prep time is 15-20 minutes and then add baking

The exterior of the potato and the cheese mixture and bacon that is extending beyond the potato is crispy and flavorful.

The bacon stuffed into the potato is softer, almost like a Canadian bacon texture. I mean it’s no candy bacon, but you get the point.

Parmesan Crusted Hasselback Potatoes

There are many ways to eat a potato, but making them up hasselback style is a family favorite.

This recipe can look intimidating but its all about cutting and stuffing, so no chef skills really need (just good knives). 

Now what is a hasselback potato? Hasselback potatoes or “Potato à la Hasselbacken” are baked potatoes that are cut halfway through and stuffed!

Preheat oven to 400 and generously grease a baking sheet. If desired, add parchment paper to the baking sheet and grease the parchment paper. Set aside.

Place 2 wood spoons next to a potato.

Use a knife to slice 1/4″ slices into the potato, using the spoons as a guide to stop the slice so you are not cutting all the way through the potato.

Repeat until all potatoes are cut.
