Hasselback Potatoes with Beef Mince



  • Preheat the oven to 200°C.
  • Prepare the potatoes by making thin slices along the potato without cutting all the way through to the bottom. Place on a prepared baking sheet. Rub the garlic and butter between the cuts.  Cook for 1 hour or until potatoes are tender.
  • Whilst potatoes are cooking, pan fry bacon until crispy and set aside.  Without washing pan, add mince and brown, breaking up lumps as you go.  Add taco seasoning, 1/2 cup of water and simmer until mince is cooked and water absorbed.
  • Remove the potatoes from the oven, stuff with beef mince mixture, sprinkle with cheese and return to the oven until the cheese has melted.
  • Top with bacon, sour cream and chives and serve.
TIP: use chopsticks or a wooden spoon to stop you cutting all the way through the potatoes.
