A note about serious food allergies

Hasselback potatoes have the most complicated-sounding name for the simplest of preparations: all you do is make little slits in the taters where delightful flavors can be stuffed into. Here, that's nutty Parmesan cheese, adding deep delight to the spuds. (And even if you make an oopsie and cut all the way through… flavor is still delicious.) Now, say it with us: I want my hassel-back, hassel-back, hassel-back…

Customize It Instructions

  • If using 16 oz. of scallops, follow same instructions, working in batches if necessary.

  • If using shrimp, follow same instructions as scallops in Step 4, add shrimp to hot pan and cook undisturbed until seared on one side, 2-3 minutes. Flip, and cook until shrimp reaches a minimum internal temperature, 1-2 minutes.

  • If using chicken breasts, pat dry and season both sides with a pinch of salt and pepper. Follow same instruction as scallops in Step 4, cooking until chicken reaches minimum internal temperature, 5-7 minutes per side.

  1. 1

    Roast the Potatoes

    Halve potatoes lengthwise. Transfer to prepared baking sheet and top cut-sides with 2 tsp. olive oil, ¼ tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper. Massage oil and seasoning into potatoes. Place on baking sheet, cut-sides down. Roast in hot oven until tender, 20-25 minutes. Carefully remove from oven. Gently press down on potatoes using a utensil. Flip potatoes. Sprinkle cut-sides with half the Parmesan (reserve remaining for garnish). Roast again until cheese is bubbling and lightly browned, 5-8 minutes. While potatoes bake, prepare ingredients.

  2. 2

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Trim and cut snap peas into 1” pieces on an angle. Trim, peel, and cut shallot into ¼” slices. Crush crackers. Pat scallops dry.

  3. 3

    Cook the Sauce

    Place a medium pot over medium heat and add 1 tsp. olive oil. Add shallot and bacon to hot pot. Stir occasionally until shallot is tender and bacon is slightly crisped, 3-4 minutes. Add snap peas and corn. Stir occasionally, 2 minutes. Add cream cheese, ½ cup water, ¼ tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly to incorporate cream cheese. Once boiling, remove from burner. Stir in butter.
