Hasselback Potatoes

Where oh where have these been my whole life?? Have you tried them?? If not, definitely do so!!!

Last week, I made my Mississippi Roast (also a must try) and was trying to think up a side dish to serve with them. I only have 5 potatoes on hand (weird, right??), but wanted to use them up. After looking through cookbooks, Pinterest, and Google, I got the inspiration to try these out! After prepping for only 5 minutes, these were ready for the oven. Each and every family member (including three picky kiddos) LOVED these!! Next time, I will have to make more than 5!

The butter, cheeses, and seasonings gave these potatoes such great flavor. The outside of the potato was crispy similar to a fry, while the middle was perfectly soft/tender!!

Hope you enjoy these as much as my family did!!!
