For the final day of cooking with 3 ingredients, I took the liberty of excluding the accepted ingredients like salt and oil to make these delicious Cheese Hasselback Potatoes. I could've very well made a plain Hasselback Potatoes without the cheese. Then I thought when I am going to indulge in making something with the potatoes, I might as well go all the way and make it cheesy.
This was also made and served during movie time, naturally, I had to plan it ahead and it was getting baked to be served during the interval time. It took a pretty long time for the baking to get done and I thought I could've microwaved the potato for a quick-serve as well. Should do it next time.
School started for the boys and we were pretty much running around trying to see if they got everything in their bags. As usual, everybody remembered things to be done at the last moment. And we were thankful that things are normal.
Cheese Hasselback Potatoes
Potato 2 long ones

How to make the Cheese Hasselback Potatoes
To get the correct slices and not completely slice through, keep the scrubbed potato over a dented ladle as shown in the picture and slice it through to think slices.
Brush with garlic butter, sprinkle salt, and red chili flakes.
Preheat the oven at 200 C and bake for 40 mins or till the potatoes are soft.
Once done, sprinkle the grated cheese over it and bake for another 5 - 7 mins.
