Hasselback Potatoes

Hasselback Potatoes:

8 medium-sized potatoes
60g butter, melted (used half olive oil and half butter)
1 tablespoon breadcrumbs
1 cup grated cheddar cheese
1 teaspoon paprika (optional)
1/2 cup bacon bits

1. Peel potatoes and cut into halves. Make thin slits on potatoes only 3/4 way.

2. Place potatoes flat side down in a microwave dish with about 30ml water.(Water prevents the potatoes from drying up) Cover and microwave on high for 8 to 10 minutes.

3. Remove and place on a greased and foil-lined baking tray.

4. Bake in preheated oven 200 deg C for 30 minutes, brushing with butter occasionally.

5. Sprinkle breadcrumb mix and bake for another 10 to 15 minutes.

Breadcrumb mix

All baked and ready! (should have used more cheddar and some mozzarella)


  1. The breadcrumb mix looks very delicious itself...mmm. I'm sure it's very delicious with more cheese but then it can be very rich. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

  2. delicious mix of breadcrumbs, bacon and cheese with the roasted potatoes. Happy New Year! ♥
