Swiss Bacon Hasselback Potatoes

This fun and eye catching potato recipe looks complicated, but is actually very easy to make!


  • 4-6 Baking Potatoes
  • 3-4 slices of bacon (thick cut preferred)
  • A few tsp of olive oil
  • 4-6 slices of swiss cheese.
  • ground pepper
  • salt


  1. To create this unique design, you begin by making 1/4 to 1/6th inch slits into the potato, leaving approximately 1/2 inch at the bottom of the potato so that it does not separate. Tip: to guide your cuts and avoid cutting through the bottom, place chopsticks on both sides of the potato.
  2. Brush the potatoes with a small amount of olive oil.
  3. Add bacon in between the slits. (we opted for thick cut!)
  4. Add salt and pepper to preference and then place on grill.
  5. Allow the potatoes some time to heat up and then add your swiss cheese. Total time on the grill is approximately 75-90 minutes.
  6. Remove from the grill and test the potato, it should not be overly firm. Note: Keep an eye on the bottom of the potatoes, as they can burn if the grill is too hot.
