I picked up mine at Walmart while getting ingredients for these yummy hasselback potatoes!

New Jimmy Dean® Bacon is premium bacon, coming in two flavors; Hickory Smoked and Applewood Smoked. For today’s recipe I used the Applewood Smoked variety but use which flavor you like best.

You can cook the bacon anyway you like, but for my Fully Loaded Hasselback Potatoes, I wanted it super crispy, but I didn’t have time to watch it. So, I just cut it into thirds, popped it in the oven at 425 degrees for 15 minutes, and boom! Done.

It comes out perfect every time, this is my favorite way to cook bacon.

Want to know a secret? I have never made hasselback potatoes before this post. I KNOW. Have I been missing out! They are sooo easy, and SO delicious. Of course, I had to make them fully loaded. Go big or go home, lol.

Hasselback potatoes sound complicated but they aren’t. It’s just a russet potato sliced into 1/4 of an inch thick slices. BUT, you don’t slice all the way through, leaving about 1/2 inch of the bottom of the potato intact. This way, the potato slices fan out but still stay together, pretty cool, huh?

This allows for all those slices to get golden brown and crispy, yum!

Then, you can stuff them with whatever you like. I went classic “loaded” toppings. Sharp cheddar cheese and Jimmy Dean® Bacon gets tucked in between the layers.

Pop it back in the oven to melt and get ooey and gooey.

Then, sour cream and scallions as a topper makes them a killer side dish! Or meal even, this baby is huge!

It reminds me of pull apart bread… amirite? Either way, you can’t go wrong with carbs. Carbs are my favorite.
