Sometimes the memory of a certain cheesy bread—crosshatched to create a loaf of perfect, pull-apart bites—crawls into my dreams. It probably has something to do with the twinkly glee of seeing such a craggy, melty, toasty delight come out of the oven. And the animalistic tearing and ripping to angle your perfect piece. It makes nachos seem tame.

If I squint a certain way, or maybe it only happens in my dreams, you know what the loaf kind of looks like? A baked potato—which set my alarm bells to ringing. Ding ding ding! Why hasn't anyone given a baked potato the same treatment? Crosshatched it, stuffed it with cheese and other good stuff, and set it out to share? Well guess what—we just did.

Pull-Apart Cheesy Baked Potato by Ali Slagle

You're probably already familiar with the benefits of hasselbacking a potato (and lots of other ingredients)—very impressive, lots of caramelized edges, crevices for fillings. But when you cut your potato with fewer slices and then also cut it the other way, you’ve got all the benefits of a hasselback in addition to one very important, new one: That potato just became finger food.

A Pull-Apart Cheesy Baked Potato is like a baked potato crossed with a French fry. Scratch that, cheese fries. Add more toppings and it edges into nacho or poutine territory. Now that we've finally thought of this, it begs another question: Why didn’t we think of this sooner? (And did you just wander over to preheat your oven?)

I’ve Been Making Asian Nachos for Years—and Now Everybody Wants Them

  I’ve Been Making Asian Nachos for Years—and Now Everybody Wants Them Asian Nachos are now a big Pinterest trend (told you). Here’s the best way to make them at home. You’ll thank us, we promise!We come across a lot of food trends—yes, like the currently hot Asian nachos. It’s our job to go through them and use years of cooking and eating expertise to determine what’s best for you. Like a good friend vetting your dates, we swipe left or right accordingly so you don’t have to. Some trends we dismiss sight unseen, others quickly become loves of a lifetime. And then there are the ones we've been talking about for years.

Slice potatoes into 1/8 inch slices. Lay out on a baking sheet and coat with olive oil and salt. Pile baked chips in layers with cheese and whatever your nacho topping preference is. Feel free to get crazy with it. Bake another 5-10 minutes until everything is melty and looking good.

The fillings in your pull-apart baked potatoes could resemble what you'd find on your cheese fries or your traditional baked potato bar. Or, you could start with your favorite melty cheese (cheddar, Gruyère, mozzarella, blue cheese, jack) and dream up some friends to go with it (bacon, herbs, chopped nuts, peppers, scallions—you’re learning a lot about my dreams).

Whatever you choose, you’ll want your ingredients pre-cooked and chopped finely, as they won’t cook much once they're nestled in your potato. Cheese should be grated or cut up in little bits.

Here are just some a few of the combos we really like. Paired with a beer, they’re getting the party started. With a side salad, they’re dinner. (Need more balance, you say? Heck, you could purée some cooked broccoli and layer it in there with some grated cheddar.)

  • Mozzarella + lemon zest + rosemary
  • Toasted hazelnuts + blue cheese
  • Cheddar + chopped kimchi
  • Scallions + jalapeno + pepper jack
  • Bacon lardons + Gruyère + curry powder

Okay, one more thing we should’ve mentioned earlier: These potatoes come together in fewer than 30 minutes. Starting the potato in the microwave is a big timesaver, followed by a spell in the oven that's just long enough to cook the potato to creamy completion and to melt that cheese. To keep your fillings from burning, you’ll want to stick those into the potato first, and then top with your cheese.
