But first off, what 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.

INGREDIENTS

Loaded Hasselback Potatoes
  • 2 yellow potatoes

  • ½ tsp smoked paprika
  • ¼ tsp each salt and pepper
  • Garnish with: sour cream or Greek yogurt, chopped green onions or chives
Vegan Nacho Hasselback Potatoes
  • 2 yellow potatoes
  • 1 tsp olive oil 5 mL
  • ¾ cup cashews soaked, 125 g
  • 1 jalapeno
  • ¼ cup nutritional yeast 20 g
  • ¼ tsp each chili powder, cumin, salt
  • 1 clove garlic
  • ¼ to ½ cup water 60 to 120 mL
  • Garnish with: dairy-free sour cream, sliced jalapenos
Herby Hasselback Potatoes
  • 2 yellow potatoes

INSTRUCTIONS

  • 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.

Loaded Hasselback Potatoes

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

  • Cook: Set in a parchment paper-lined slow cooker and brush with 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.)
  • Vegan Queso: Make sure you soak your cashews in water overnight or in very hot water for 1 hour. Put jalapeno in the oven on broil for 5 minutes until charred. Remove skin and add to a blender along with drained cashews, nutritional yeast, spices, garlic, and a little water. Blend and add more water until you reach your desired consistency.
  • Serve: Serve potatoes warm, topped with vegan queso, dairy-free sour cream (or yogurt), salt, and pepper.

Herby Hasselback Potatoes

  • Cook: Stuff herbs 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.)
  • Serve: Serve potatoes warm, topped with sour cream (or plain Greek yogurt), lemon juice, salt, and pepper.
