Summer is about the grill. It’s about getting outside in the sun and having fun. With these Grilled Hasselback Potatoes, now you can be outside all day long. Our recipe is loaded with a bunch of our favourite flavours and toppings. Bacon, green onions, cheese, onions, ranch and butter – does it get any better?

But what exactly are hasselback potatoes? A Hasselback potato is basically just a baked potato, except it’s cut into very thin slices about 1/4″ from the bottom so that the potato still stays intact. They seem complicated, but their actually fairly simple – and we have an awesome hack to make them even easier. The moment you cut through the entire potato, it’s no longer a hasselback potato. In order to ensure that you’re making deep cuts without going through the entire thing, place two wooden spoon handles on either side of the potato. With a sharp knife, cut through the potato until you reach the wood spoons and no more, repeat across their entire potato. For the best sized cuts, we recommend no more than 1/4″ slices.
