This Hasselback Potatoes Recipe Creates a Stunning and Crispy Side Dish

Garlicky seasoned butter fills every nook and cranny of these hearty spuds

The humble potato takes center stage in this easy hasselback potatoes recipe. We gave this familiar side dish a stunning upgrade (no offense to mashed potato lovers out there). But their simple preparation doesn’t mean they lack in presentation or flavor. Your dinner guests will definitely want the recipe.

So, what are hasselback potatoes? Believed to originate in Sweden, this type of baked potato is cut about halfway through into thin, fan-like slices. Then, you roast the potatoes until crispy and golden. Most recipes also add ingredients between each slice, such as butter, garlic or herbs. The result? A delightful textural contrast — crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside with a ton of flavor. Think of it like a potato chip fused with a baked potato. Let us know if you tried it below!

When making this hasselback potatoes recipe, use potatoes of similar size. This ensures even cooking. And for more delicious potato side dishes, try Microwave Sweet Potatoes and French Onion Potatoes.
