Coming at ya today with a recipe I’m REAL excited about. Because it’s not just one recipe. It’s THREE amazingly easy and delicious recipes all wrapped up into one. Three recipes that I’ve tried and tested and failed and retried until hitting the perfect trifecta of potato goodness. Because these easy hasselback potatoes are here to change dinnertime.

But first off, what the heck is a hasselback potato? It’s basically a pre-sliced baked potato. We’ll cut them into thin slices about 3/4 of the way down, so they’re still held together but fan out a bit. This helps them to cook nice and evenly and allows you to stuff them with all the yums so they can absorb those flavors while they cook. Traditional recipes would have you bake them, but in the name of convenience (because potatoes are the kings of convenience), today we’re making our easy hasselback potatoes in our slow cooker!

We’re using yellow potatoes, known for their versatility and flavor-absorbing capacity. They’re basically our culinary canvas of unlimited possibilities (which today includes such flavors as Vegan Nacho, Herb, and Loaded!) Curious about how to use all the varieties of potatoes? Potatoes USA breaks down each variety with ideas and recipes. Be sure to check out their website or Facebook. Now, onto these easy hasselback potato recipes!

Loaded Hasselback Potatoes, complete with smoky roasted chickpeas, gooey sharp cheddar, a dollop of sour cream, and fresh cut green onions!

Course Main Dishes, Side Dishes
Diet Gluten-Free, Vegetarian
Occasion 4th of July, Christmas, Easter, Game Day, Thanksgiving
Time 60 minutes or more
Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 3 hours
Total Time 3 hours 10 minutes
Servings 2 potatoes
Calories 429 kcal
Author Live Eat Learn

Ingredients

  • 2 yellow potatoes
  • 3.5 oz sharp cheddar cheese, sliced 100 g
  • 4 tsp olive oil 20 mL, divided
  • 1/2 15-oz can chickpeas, drained and pat dry 1/2 of a 425g can
  • 1/2 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1/4 tsp each salt and pepper
  • Garnish with: sour cream or Greek yogurt, chopped green onions or chives

Instructions

  1. Potatoes: Lay the potato facedown on its flattest side, setting two wooden spoons on either side to prevent from cutting all the way through, then thinly slice the potato.

  2. Cook: Stuff cheddar cheese between potato slices. Set in a parchment paper-lined slow cooker and brush with 1 tsp olive oil. Cook on high for 3 hours, or until potatoes are soft. (I like to wrap a tea towel around the lid to absorb excess moisture let off from potatoes.)

  3. Chickpeas: Meanwhile, preheat oven to 400 degrees F (204 C). Combine chickpeas, 3 tsp oil, paprika, salt, and pepper and spread onto a parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Bake for 20 minutes, or until a bit crispy.

  4. Serve: Serve potatoes warm, topped with sour cream (or plain Greek yogurt), chickpeas, sliced green onions, salt, and pepper.
