Have you ever stared down at your baked potato and looked at it, a little sad that the only topping is a small mountain of butter? We’ve all had that moment. And, even though, a classic baked potato can be the perfect side from time to time, dressing it up has really become a challenge of mine.
I started with the classics, broccoli and cheese over a baked potato. Then I added shredded chicken, barbecue sauce, taco filling, and more. This time I wanted to really jazz up dinner by taking things to a whole new level. I decided that hasselback potatoes looked awesome (and came with like 99 little pockets for stuffing butter) and would be perfect for a weeknight pizza night with only a fraction of the guilt. A gluten free version of everyone’s favorite meal. Plus, the idea of smothering a potato in cheese and marinara sauce just seemed too good to pass up.
Hasselback potatoes are a fun way to dress up a classic baked potato and (with or without pizza toppings) would be a fun meal as we roll into the holiday season or as a weeknight no fuss meal. Pizza Stuffed Hasselback Baked Potatoes are just a fun way to really amp things up and turn weeknight into par-tay time!
