Grilled Hasselback Potatoes


For the Potatoes

4 potatoes
¼ cup unsalted butter, melted
½ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon black pepper
¼ cup grated cheddar cheese
¼ cup sour cream
¼ cup crumbled bacon
2 tablespoons fresh chives, chopped


  1. Preheat your grill to 200°C.
  2. Wash each potato and make a 50 mm wide cuts down the width of each.
    HOT TIP – Place wooden spoons or butter knives parallel to the potato when cutting to prevent from cutting through.
  3. Individually place each potato at the centre of a piece of heavy-duty aluminium foil. Brush each potato with melted butter and season with salt and pepper to taste.
  4. Wrap each potato in the foil and seal tightly. Place the potatoes on the grill and cook for one hour or until tender.
  5. Remove from the grill and carefully unwrap the foil. Sprinkle grated cheddar cheese on each potato and place back on the grill until the cheese is melted.
  6. Take the potatoes off the grill, place them onto a plate and top with sour cream, crumbled bacon and chives. Eat up!
