Sliced Baked Potatoes Recipe


sliced baked potatoes

Here’s an easy and delicious twist to a plain baked potato – these were a huge dinner success at my house. You can customize the toppings to what each person in your family likes (great way to use up any leftover ham from the holidays!). On this day, I made one with chopped ham and smoked gouda cheese and the other with fresh rosemary and thyme. They both were outstanding! I’m also a fan of roasting these with coconut oil…so yummy. 🙂

Sliced Baked Potatoes

(Adapted from the Instructables)


1 large potato (I used a Russet)
1 teaspoon coconut oil or olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste
Toppings of your choice like fresh herbs, cheese, bacon, ham, green onion etc.

How to make sliced baked potatoes Hip2Save


Slice potatoes widthwise about 3/4 of the way down. Be careful not to slice all the way through the bottom. Slather oil all over potato; add salt and pepper. Bake at 400 degrees for about 45 minutes. Take out of the oven and place cheese in between slices or any of the topping(s) of your choosing and bake for another 15 minutes to melt.

I love how these turn out crispy around the edges and soft in the middle. Such a simple idea that’ll have you craving a baked potato! What kind of potatoes and toppings will you choose?

    These look delicious! Thanks so much for sharing!

  2. Laura

    Thanks! Looks so easy and super yummy on a cold day.

  3. Cammie

    Little hint. Put a chopstick on each side of the potato. Stops you from cutting through it. 🙂

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      Such a smart idea!!

      • Tee K

        Along the same lines, I use a wooden spoon on one side 🙂

    • Teri

      Great idea with the spoon and chopsticks thanks…these look so good. Yum.

    • priscilla

      Great idea using the chop sticks ,,,

  4. J

    There goes my diet for the New Year lol. These look delicious, thanks for sharing Lina!

    These are actually called Hasselback potatoes. These accordion-fanned spuds were named for the Stockholm restaurant that first served them (thank you Restaurant Hasselbacken!) I actually purchased a Hasselback Potato Slicer on sale from Williams Sonoma a couple of months ago but now I see that they are no longer for sale. http://www.williams-sonoma.com/products/hasselback-potato-slicer/

    What if your family doesn’t eat the skin? Any suggestions?

    • Dawne

      Ummm, peel it first??

    • makaylaisabel

      Peeling it tends to make it not be as sturdy. Falls apart, I would peel and wrap in bacon 😛 or maybe semi-bread them.

      • Katherine

        Baacon!! Can never go wrong with bacon! 🙂

      • K

        Thanks for the tip! I was worried about them falling apart.

    • Tee K

      I always peel mine first

    • nel

      I always tell my mother in law one of the best gifts she ever gave me was teaching the hubs to eat the skin on everything. “It has lots of nutrition”. I lucked out! 🙂

  7. selam

    Looks delicious I love potatoes:-) people are always laughing at me because I can’t live without Pototoes. Lol

  8. Jen Mc

    Yum! Perfect addition to a Gluten free diet

  9. lovesadeal

    Wrap them in foil and throw them in the coals of a bonfire…..delicious! (I did this the last time we went camping)

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      Hey great camping idea! Yes love that idea thanks!

  10. Anna

    haha, love how this came right after the weight watcher free magazine post…. thanks for the post… looks good for our upcoming camp trip… and HNY Colin!

  11. ihearthip

    YUM! I think I will also try a spicy version with jalepenos and cream cheese.

    • Leighton

      Great idea!

  12. babybasement

    I love this recipe for my meat and potato lovin’ hubby! Thanks Lina 🙂 You know I have never really made a baked potato before but love to order them when we eat out so this will be exciting to add to my dinner rotations.

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      Thanks! I know my hubby loved his ham and cheese one. He’s very meat and potato 🙂

  13. nl

    They look great. I’m trying it.

  14. Heather

  17. holly

    Making right now, they smell GREAT. So you don’t cover these in foil? Sorry if I missed it and am just having a pregnancy moment.

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      I didn’t buy you can 🙂 enjoy

  18. Kim W.

    Love this recipe!!! Thanks for sharing!

  19. Charm

    Thank you! We are actually making it tonight, with fried Chicken and leftover collard greens from new year….

  20. Allison

    is it hard to stuff the cheese in between the cuts once they have been in the oven for 45 minutes? or are they not soft enough yet. trying to figure out how to do it without burning my fingers off! ive had this pinned on pinterest for awhile but it didn’t have instructions.

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      Just make sure it’s sliced thin! No it wasn’t hard. Maybe let cool a few minutes.

  21. Mimi

    Wouldn’t the cheese burn??

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      Bake for 45 min first then add cheese. Bake for another 10-15 check to see if melted.

  22. Bethany

    Lina!! Your recipes look so amazing! I made those cream cheese bars for Christmas Eve brunch and they were a HUGE hit! I have made them once since and have been requested to make them for two other family gatherings. Also, I love lots of toppings on my baked potatoes so I am sure these will be great! Thank you for sharing!

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      Yeah! I’m glad they were a hit! Thanks for sharing 🙂

  23. michelle G.

    We are having friends over for dinner tomorrow night and think I will make these potatoes for it. Any suggestions on what else I should serve with it? It doesn’t seem like enough for dinner by itself. Thanks for any suggestions!!

    • Crystal

      For company, I would do a baked chicken with herbs and a green bean casserole.
      You can cook at 3 in the oven and clean up should be a breeze.

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      I think a roasted chicken is easy and maybe a nice salad! Enjoy!

  24. maflies1

    Just reading this and trying tonight with salmon croquettes and a colored veggie. I love your recipes, Lina. They are always pretty, look delicious, and easy and quick to make-with no exotic ingredients. My dh does is not usually a big fan of baked potatoes, but betting he will like these. He also appreciates it when I serve him a pretty plate, and tells me so. 🙂

  25. Anne

    I made these right after seeing the post, I love making the baked potatoes this way! My mom had cheese on hers and I had some sour cream on mine. I didn’t need to use any butter since the coconut oil and kosher salt gave it the perfect flavor. I probably could have skipped the sour cream as well, I’m just used to eating it that way. I had a leftover one and I popped it back in the oven to heat it up, I topped it with leftover chili. Thanks for the great idea!

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      Wonderful!! You are so welcome 🙂

  26. sharon skidmore

    Potatoes are even better when baked in the grill while cooking ribs for several hours.They are creamy and smokey and to die for.My family’s favorite way to eat them! I oil them and liberally salt and add to grill about 2 hrs from the end of cooking time.

  27. Hollie

    yea! i was going to do baked potatoes tonite~now I can look like a really good cook;)

  28. RB

    I saw this recipe with steak seasoning and butter instead, which I made and loved. It came out delicious. (Our favorite that we’ve tried so far is the McCormick GrillMates steak seasoning, but the Weber isn’t bad either. Even when not hot, though, it was somewhat time-consuming trying to stuff the butter slices down into the potato. I think that next time I will melt the butter and pour over instead.)

  29. bonnie

    this looks awesome. friends will be impressed with my cooking.. lol I will buy fresh dill and herbs to season with. thanks for posting.. looks so yummmmy…

  30. Andrey Bold

    Hint. Before you bake you can boil potatos
