These Hasselback Potatoes with Cheese and Bacon are an easy way to impress your guests. These cheesy potatoes are a perfect combination of crispy and baked potatoes.
I could not resist anymore. I’ve been seeing these Hasselback potatoes everywhere. I mean everywhere. So I wanted to know what the fuss was all about. Apparently these potatoes originated in Sweden and the name comes from Hasselbacken, a restaurant in Stockholm where they were first served.
I have to say though, that they do look very pretty, so if you were having a dinner party you would definitely be impressing your guests with these potatoes.
Since I love potatoes, especially roasted potatoes I had to give these a try. And of course since baked potatoes go with cheese and bacon, I had to add some cheese and bacon to mine.
To make these takes a little bit more time than your traditional baked potatoes. You’ll need larger baking potatoes, use your favorite ones.
The topping ingredients that I used, as I mentioned before, are fried bacon, some cheddar cheese and garnished with parsley.
So were they any different than a regular baked potato? No, of course not. But they are pretty so if you’re trying to impress someone, then this is the way to go.
