I had been wanting to make these! I put my own little twist to them, and they were a hit with the family. :)

1/2 c

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 350.
2
Slice potatoes Hasselback style, making very thin slices but being very careful not to cut all the way through.
3
In a small bowl, mix together melted butter, parsley, basil, oregano and garlic.
4
In a small frying pan, fry up the bacon until crisp. Drain well on paper towels. Crumble & set aside.
5
Line a baking dish with foil. Spray with non-stick spray. Arrange potatoes in baking dish. Drizzle with olive oil, then using your hands rub the oil all over the surface of the potatoes.
6
Bake in oven for 15 minutes. Then take out and, using a basting brush give a nice coating with the butter-herb mixture.
7
Place back into the oven for 15 minutes, then baste again.
8
Repeat baking & basting every 15 minutes until potatoes are tender inside and browned & crispy on the outer edges. 1/2 way through baking, sprinkle a little Parmesan, then baste.
9
When potatoes are done (about an hour or so), sprinkle with some shredded cheese, and bake for 5-10 minutes more just until cheese is melted. Remove from the oven and top immediately with the crumbled bacon.

Serve.
