Garlic and Cheese Hasselback Potatoes

  • 1 Cup cheddar cheese grated
  • 1 Cup ham chopped
  • 1 tablespoon Garlic chopped
  • 1 tablespoon fresh parsley chopped
  • 6 medium Potatoes
  • 1/2 Cup Butter melted
  • 2 teaspoons Salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper


  • Preheat oven to 400°F.
  • Mix together cheese, ham, garlic, and parsley in a bowl; set aside.
  • Place 1 chopstick on each side of a potato. Thinly slice potato crosswise, stopping when the knife hits the sticks, creating uniform slices. Dip in melted butter and place in a baking dish. Repeat with remaining potatoes. Season with salt and pepper. Cover and bake for 40 minutes.
  • Remove potatoes from oven. Fill spaces in between slices with cheese-ham mixture. Drizzle with remaining melted butter and bake again, uncovered, until cheese is melted. Serve immediately.
