Bacon & Cheese Stuffed Hasselback Potatoes | Healthy Recipe

This is a super tasty and quick to make recipe. Hassleback potatoes have been finely sliced throughout, which means you can stuff the 'cracks' with tasty fillings, like my cottage cheese and veg salsa Hassleback potatoes.

The name Hasselback Potato is derived from the restaurant where they were first introduced in the 1940s, Hasselbacken in Stockholm.

Hasselback potatoes are a simple dish- whole potatoes cut in such a way as to resemble a fan or accordion when roasted. The outside of the potato becomes crisp and brown while the inside is soft and creamy.

This version is stuffed with smoky bacon and cheese slices!
