Cheesy Bacon Hasselback Potato

When I make these potatoes, I pop them in the microwave. It only takes about 8 minutes for two medium potatoes. They can also be baked in the oven for 40-60 minutes. You can add anything you like to these potatoes or change them up by using a different cheese like fresh parmesan or one of your favorites.

Wash your potatoes with a brush.

Place a wooden spoon next to the potato and slice the potato stopping at the handle of the spoon. That way you won’t cut all the way through the potato. You want the bottom of the potato to stay uncut.

Slice a pat of butter and cut it into four pieces.

Insert the small pieces into each section of the potato. Add a small piece of bacon to each section too.
