Hasselback potatoes are a fun dish with a crispy exterior and tender interior. They’re also easy to make, requiring just 10 minutes of prep.
Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 45 minutes
Total Time 1 hour
Course Side Dish
Cuisine American
Servings 2
Calories 586 kcal


  • 1.5 kg floury potatoes
  • 4 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 4 garlic cloves
  • a few sprigs rosemary
  • sea salt flakes


  • Oven temperature set at 200°C/180°F/gas 6. Put a metal skewer into the back of one of the potato’s flatter sides. The majority of the potato should be cut through. Place the potato on a cutting board with the skewer side down (be careful not to cut all the way through on both ends). If it’s simpler for you, you may also sandwich each potato between the handles of two wooden spoons before cutting through to the spoon. To make slices that are a few mm apart, use a sharp knife. Repeat with the remaining potatoes after taking the skewer out.
  • On a small baking sheet, arrange the potatoes cut-side up and drizzle with oil. Use your hands to thoroughly coat each potato in oil, getting some between the slices. Add the rosemary and chopped garlic, and season well. The potatoes should be roasted for 50 minutes to an hour, or until they are crisp and golden brown on top. To create extra-crispy potatoes, baste the skillet with any oil remaining halfway through cooking.
