This potato was delicious. My only beef, is every time I think of the name I can’t help but think of David Hasselhoff. What is a Hasselback anyways? Could it be David Hasselhoff’s back? I’ve suddenly lost my appetite…
Watch us enjoy this on CTV Morning Live – Saskatoon!
Hasselwhatever, this is a great way to cook your potato, not to mention it looks fancy too! It takes the joy of a baked potato, and amplifies it by stuffing delicious ingredients into each slice of the potato! Placing the bacon and onion together in each slice caramelizes the onion, while roasting the whole potato in bacon fat. Oh, what a wonderful thing!
Bacon & Onion Campfire Hasselback Potato
- 1 russet potato
- 1 slice of uncooked bacon chopped
- 1 slice of white onion quarted
- salt & pepper
- aluminum foil
- Cut even slices along the potato about a 2/3 of the way down the potato.
- Place slices of onion in each crack of the potato, then stuff bacon inside on top of onions.

- Place potato on the aluminum foil, adding salt & pepper to taste.
- Fold the aluminum foil around the potato.
- Add another layer of aluminum foil around the already foiled potato.

These potatoes are definitely going to find their way back onto my dinner menu, whether i’m camping or not!
