How Do You Make Hasselback Potatoes?

This is one of those things that looks a lot more difficult than it is. All you’re basically doing is slicing the potatoes 3/4 of the way through, not all the way. The deep slices that you make do a couple of things.

For one, the slices allow all the toppings seep into them so that flavor is in every bite. The second thing that the slices do is add texture to the potatoes, the edges of the slices will get crispy and the inside will stay tender.

So after you make slices in the potatoes, brush them with a garlic and olive oil mixture and bake them for about 25 minutes. Check to see if all the potatoes are tender (since some will most likely be different sizes than others) then remove them from the oven.

Now add your toppings, cheese and bacon for our loaded hasselback potatoes, but you can also add many other potato toppings here!

These mini, loaded potatoes go perfectly with just about any dinner! You can also serve these bacon stuffed potatoes for appetizers!



  • 2 pounds small yellow potatoes
  • 1/2 cup bacon bits
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 2 tablespoons chopped garlic mixed with 1/4 cup olive oil
  • Kosher salt to taste
  • Chives and sour cream for serving (optional)


  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Slice the potatoes (about 4-5 slices per potato) but don’t cut all the way through to the bottom, you want the potato to stay together. A trick for this is to rest the potato in a wooden spoon so that you don’t slice all the way through.
  3. Brush with olive oil and season with kosher salt.
  4. Bake the potatoes for 25-30 minutes or until the potatoes are fork tender. Some will be smaller than others so check the larger potatoes for tenderness.
  5. Remove the potatoes from the oven and brush with the garlic and olive oil mixture.
  6. Add the cheese and bacon to each potato then bake for another 5-7 minutes.
  7. Serve with sour cream and chives (optional)
