These Little Cheesy Hasselback Potatoes are a fun side dish or appetizer! They take less time to bake and are more “poppable” than large potatoes so they’re perfect for kids!

There are two things that will bring my kids to the table faster than anything else.

  1. Cheese.
  2. Cheese. Food in fun shapes.

Is it the same in your house? Seriously, anything out of the ordinary gets my kids all excited about dinnertime again. Plain roasted potatoes may be super delicious on their own, but Hasselback Potatoes? With cheese?!?!

Guaranteed my kids will go nuts for them.

They aren’t big on spice though, so while this is a pretty basic version, you can be sure that a spiced version is happening soon, even if I have to eat them all myself. Aw, shucks!

Seriously though, sometimes it’s just nice to have something that you get to eat all by yourself and not have to share. Mamas, do you feel my pain?

I swear, as soon as the kids are in bed I break out the treats. I try pretty hard to be a good example during the day but man, once those bedroom doors are closed it’s like a party for one every night. I think some spicy Cheesy Hasselback Potatoes are going to be next! Just for mom πŸ˜‰

Another thing that makes these Hasselback Potatoes extra special is that I used the Terrific Trio from The Little Potato Company — which combines red, yellow and blue Creamer potatoes in one bag for those kids that eat with their eyes first.

So, let’s be honest — all of them! Even the big kids at the table πŸ˜‰

*This recipe and post was created in partnership with The Little Potato Company as part of my brand ambassadorship with them — thanks for supporting the brands that help me bring you all the creamy, cheesy things!

See how easy they are to make!

    Can these be partially cooked ahead of time if bringing to someone’s house (where the oven will be used by others too)?

  2. Chidinma says

    These seem delicious!! Perfect for a late night snack, just when you’re craving something delicious… What cheese are you using? Seems like cheddar. Have you tried with sour cream? Or a dip? Thanks for these! I will be making them soon.

    The hubster and I don’t have kids, but since we are just BIG kids ourselves, I understand the cheesy and fun eats! I LOVE these taters, girlfriend!! Anything mini just makes me swoon, so I LOVE that you miniaturized hasselback potatoes! And added all the cheese!!! Forget dinner, I just need a platter of these! πŸ˜‰ cheers!

    When I make these potatoes, I put a chop stick on both sides of the potato, on the cutting board. It prevents cutting too far into the potato. It also makes the slicing quicker.

  5. Dorothy Dunton says

    Hi Ashley! We are still digging fingerling potatoes and these would go very well with steak or barbecue! A tip I picked up a long time ago is to lay a chopstick on each side of the potato when slicing them and you will never cut a chunk off.
