Cheesy Yukon Gold Hasselback Potatoes

Can we get a hell yeah? Look how delicious these bad boys are.

Potatoes are delicious no matter how you decide to eat them; mashed potatoes, hash-browns, baked potatoes, french fries, potato chips… I mean the options with this starch is pretty much endless. For these hasselback potatoes we used Yukon gold because they are so tender and personally I think taste the best! I have this recipe for you all right below and you will see how simple and inexpensive these are to make.

Servings: 3 Prep time: 5 min Cook time: 1 hr


  • 3 Yukon gold potatoes
  • 1 TBS olive oil
  • 2 Slices cheddar cheese (we used pre-sliced sandwich cheese and cut into small rectangles for stuffing)
  • Salt/pepper
  • 2 Slices bacon finely chopped and cooked until browned
  • 3 TBS sour cream


  1. Wash potatoes to remove dirt and preheat oven to 425*
  2. Using a sharpened knife slice the potatoes vertically being careful not to slice all the way through. Stop the knife about a 1/2 inch away from the bottom of the potato and repeat this along the length of the potato.
  3. Take olive oil and drizzle over potatoes and rub into the skin.
  4. Season with salt and pepper.
  5. Place potatoes on baking sheet and bake for 55-60 minutes until soft and cooked all the way through.
  6. Remove potatoes from oven and place sliced cheese pieces in between each slice in the potato. Place back in oven for about 1 minute to melt the cheese.
  7. Top your potatoes with sour cream, crispy, bacon, salt/pepper, and any other toppings you would like!
