Garlic and Parmesan Grilled Hasselback Potatoes

Cut into the potato vertically leaving about 1/3 of an inch at the bottom.
If you would like, place the potato between two wooden spoons to stop you from cutting all the way through the potato.
Repeat this cut every 1/8 of an inch until you have reached the end of the potato.
Repeat with remaining potatoes.
3. Rinse potatoes under cool water, fanning out the cuts to rinse out the slices.
