Bacon Cheddar Hasselback Potatoes

Bacon Cheddar Hasselback Potatoes are fully loaded with cheese and bacon. They cook up so perfectly and open up as they cook, so you can fill those potato slices with tons of ooey gooey cheese and crisp smoky bacon, so much deliciousness you will have to pinch yourself to make sure you are not dreaming.

The fantastic Hasselback Potato was all the rage last year, but needless to say...  I am not real trendy.  Shocking, I know!

Seriously though, I am more of a classic girl.  I am not what you call hip.  But, I am really good with that.  The trends come and go, classics...  We are here to stay.

So, what does this have to do with our lovely potato you ask?

As I was saying, I am not trendy.  I kind of march to the beat of my own drummer.  So Hassel-who potatoes?  Exactly!

Then, last month I needed the perfect side to go with my Bacon Bourbon Barbecue Chicken Kabobs; a potato that I could stuff with mounds of butter, cheese and bacon. 

Although I am very fond of the Italian Potato Skins I made last year, and yes they would be an appropriate carrying vessel, I have made a lot of potato skins.

I wanted something different.  I immediately remembered those accordion-like potatoes I saw everywhere last year.

You are going to love these!  We surely do!

Bacon Cheddar Hasselback Potatoes

Bacon Cheddar Hasselback Potatoes are fully loaded with cheese and bacon. They cook up so perfectly and open up as they cook, so you can fill those potato slices with tons of ooey gooey cheese and crisp smoky bacon, so much deliciousness you will have to pinch yourself to make sure you are not dreaming.
prep time: cook time: total time:

Ingredients

  • 4 large Russet potatoes, washed
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, thinly sliced
  • kosher salt
  • fresh ground black peppe
  • olive oil
  • 8 ounces Monterey Jack and Colby cheese blend (or your favorite)
  • 16 ounces of thick cut bacon, cooked and crumbled

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Place a potato on a cutting board with wood skewers on each side (lengthwise).  Slice potato about 3/4 of the way through.  The skewers will keep you from cutting all the way through.  Cut to about 1/8" thickness.  Drizzle potatoes with olive oil and place a piece butter in every few slices.  Sprinkle with salt and pepper and bake for about 1 hour.
  3. The potatoes will have kind of opened up so you can stuff cheese and bacon into the slices.  Pack 2 ounces of cheese and 1/4 of your bacon into each potato.  Return to oven and cook for 5 minutes until cheese is melted.
  4. Serve and enjoy!

    2. have to ask... why the name Hassleback?

    3. Named after the Stockholm restaurant that first introduced them in the 1700s, Hasselback potatoes have been adopted widely by other European cuisines. Known as “accordion potatoes” in Ireland’s version of the dish.

  2. What?! You didn't make them on the grill?! I'm shocked. I was fully prepared to see you manage that one! The potatoes look awesome. How can you go wrong with potatoes + cheese + bacon?

  4. Don't worry about not being very trendy. I'm not either. The last movie I saw in the theaters that wasn't animated was in 2008 and I don't listen to music that isn't at least 20 years old.

    1. I know, right? What is even harder is to eat just one. Kind of makes you want to skip the rest of the meal.

  10. We love these things. Alexis likes me to do a similar treatment with sweet potatoes and the toppings are things like nuts and maple syrup. I was tempted to somehow put marshmallow slivers in them to make it like the sweet potato casserole except in a hassleback sweet potato.

  22. For those people who can't do dairy using the cheese, do a butter olive oil mixture with brown sugar and tiny slices of bacon or turkey bacon between the slices.

  24. Your recipes are wonderful and I love bacon and cheese as much as you do. I make these but I include some thinly sliced scallions on top as well. I also make my twice baked potatoes much the same way and mash the potatoes with sour cream. So good.
