Scalloped Hasselback Potatoes

Yippie!!! Tomorrow I am going to Vegas for a fun weekend with my mom, sister, grandma, aunt and  cousin!!! I haven't seen them since Christmas, CRAZY! We are staying at the new hip hotel, the Cosmopolitan!
Jeffrey is working so he won't be going. This time I will be a good wife and leave him with some food. I am making lemon chicken for him to eat for a few days. I also picked up some pre-made Chicken Kabobs from the freezer section at Trader Joe's. When I was telling him how to cook them he was even confused by me saying "set the oven on 400 then put them on a pan and cook them for 18 minutes." I had to get out the exact pan to use and foil and show him how to spray it with PAM first. I think I will be leaving him with several pages of instructions....

I made Hasselback Potatoes a few weeks back and decided they needed some cheese. These are MUCH tastier.....yes and healthier..NO haha I wish..!
Scalloped Hasselback Potatoes
2 golden potatoes
2 Tbsp butter
Block of Parmesan Cheese
garlic powder
2 tsp olive oil
salt
1/4 cup heavy cream
1/4 cup cheese blend
Click here to see my post about how to slice a hasselback potato. Now cut your potatoes and we can move on to the next step.
Cut butter into thin slices.
Slice thin pieces of parmesan cheese. Maybe about 4-5 slices.
Stuff the parmesan and butter in between slices of the potato.
If you have any remaining butter, put it on top. Sprinkle with salt and drizzle with olive oil.
Bake in the oven on 400 for 45 mins.
Remove from oven and drizzle cream over both potatoes. Sprinkle with cheese.
Put back in the oven for about 10-12 minutes.
SOOO yummy!

I saw these on PW's Tasty Kitchen site and made them this past weekend. I posted a review and am going to reference this recipe in a blog post on my site. I wanted to let you know that I love the easiness and versatility of this recipe. I am a potato lover! Love your site.

Loved this recipe when I saw it on PW! It looked fun and easy and different. We love potatoes and had some russet and only some cheddar cheese, but they tasted so yummy! Thanks for the recipe, now we just need to make it the right way.

I am making this tonight for my husband's birthday. It's not done yet but it has filled my kitchen with an exquisite scent! I cannot WAIT to eat it!

I stumbled across this recipe on Tasty Kitchen and immediately thought it might work for our Christmas dinner. My husband would like to serve Tartiflette (purchased from a local cheese shop) but if that doesn't work out, I think this will make a lovely substitute.

One question: to make these more Tartiflette-ish, I would like to add bacon. Have you ever tried it? Would you partially cook the bacon before you added the slices, or put it in raw?

(Okay, that's two questions).

I'll bookmark this page; hopefully you'll see this comment and reply. Meanwhile, I'll peruse the rest of your blog :)
