  • 6 potatoes
  • 4 tbsp melted butter
  • salt
  • ground black pepper
  • 12 bacon rashers
  • 6 tbsp sour cream
  • 2 cups mozzarella shredded
  • ½ cup Parmesan finely grated
  • 2 spring onions (scallions) sliced


  • Make thin vertical slices in the potatoes, making sure not to cut all the way through. Use a pair of wooden chopsticks to keep potato in place while slicing, and to prevent from cutting all the way.
  • Brush butter over potatoes and season with salt and pepper.
  • Bake at fan assisted 180C / 200C / 400F / gas 6. for 1 hr (bigger potatoes may need an extra 10 mins or so).
  • Whilst the potatoes are baking, fry the bacon until crispy. Put a little of the bacon to the side.
  • Remove potatoes from oven and add the remaining bacon, grated Parmesan and shredded mozzarella.
  • Then bake for another 5 mins, till cheese is nice and melted.
  • Top with sour cream, spring onions and remaining bacon.


Tips For Making Loaded Hasselback Potatoes
  • To make perfect accordion style slits, place the potato between two wooden chopsticks. This will keep the potato from moving, and prevent you from cutting all the way through the potato.
  • For extra flavour, brush the potatoes with butter a second time before adding the bacon and cheese.
  • You can serve Hasselback potatoes as a main course or as a side dish depending on how many ingredients you load them up with.
  • They are endlessly customizable – try topping them with salsa, chopped nuts, or breadcrumbs and loading them with shredded chicken, turkey slices, or diced veggies such as broccoli and asparagus.
