How to make Hasselback potatoes recipe in an air fryer

  1. First wash the potatoes under running water and dry them with a cloth or paper towel.
  2. Place a potato on a cutting board and, with a sharp knife, make deep slits along the potato, but do not cut it all the way through. You can help yourself by placing two Chinese chopsticks on the sides of the potato so that the knife does not cut them all the way through. The slits should be spaced about a half-inch or less apart.
  3. Now take a bowl and mix the olive oil, salt, black pepper and paprika. You can also add other spices or herbs to taste for an extra touch of flavor.
  4. Brush the potatoes with the flavored oil , trying to get a little oil into the cracks you have created.
  5. Transfer the potatoes to the hot air fryer and cook them at 200°C for about 30-35 minutes or until golden brown and crispy.
  6. Once cooked, take them out of the oven and let them cool for a few minutes.

Alternatively you can prepare the Hasselback potatoes in the oven , in the traditional way.


If you have leftover Hasselback potatoes, let them cool to room temperature then transfer them to an airtight container and store them in the refrigerator . Potatoes will keep this way for about 2-3 days . Before consuming them again, you can warm them slightly in the oven or air fryer to recover the crunchiness.
