This golden Cheesy Hasselback Potato Gratin recipe delivers all the creamy delight of a classic potato gratin, with many crispy edges due to the Hasselback potatoes. Additionally, this Hasselback potato gratin satisfies my need for creamy and cheesy goodness.

Mixing a potato gratin with Hasselback roast potatoes, we tend to deliver the best creamy-in-the-middle, crispy-on-top casserole. It’s excellent for the Thanksgiving or Christmas table, or any night you would like a show-stopping dish.

Why is Hasselback Potato Gratin so good?

By the arrangement of the potatoes accordion-style, rather like with Hasselback roasted potatoes, you get an ultra-crispy top with a creamy, cheesy and tender center.

Tossing the potato slices with the cream and cheese combination guarantees equal distribution within the baking dish.
