Hassle-free Hasselback Potatoes | Recipe

With the crispness of a fried potato and softness of a mashed potato, Hasselback potatoes or Potato à la Hasselbacken, offer the best of both worlds. A type of baked potato, where the potatoes are about halfway cut through into thin slices, hasselback potatoes are traditionally had as a side dish with meat, but can be relished by themselves, as well. Not only are they delicious, but the fancy appearance adds on to the charm of digging into them immediately on sight.

After a rather long time, I decided to make them again and here’s how my recipe goes:

4 medium potatoes
2 tablespoons melted butter
Optional additions: garlic(my all-time favourite), fresh herbs(thyme and rosemary work best), bread crumbs, bacon bits, cheese(cheddar ideally), almonds.

Crisp on the outside and creamy on the inside, these hasselback potatoes are super buttery and super indulgent. They do take some time to cook, but the wait is so worth it 😍 . . The recipe for these buttery, herbed and crisp hasselback potatoes goes live on the blog today. Will share the link on my stories 😊 . . Who’d like to give these a try?

Preparation time: 10 mins

Cooking time: 50 mins


1. Preheat the oven to 230°C or 450°F.
2. Wash the potatoes, pat dry them and then place each potato between two wooden spoons and carefully make cuts every 1/8-inch without cutting all the way through the potato.
3. Place the potatoes on the baking sheet and brush them with the melted butter and season with salt and pepper. I added crushed garlic to my butter.
4. Bake the potatoes for 25-30 mins, take them out of the oven, apply more butter and put them back for another 20 mins or until tender.
5. Remove the potatoes from the oven and serve immediately.

Morning goodness 🍳 . . Not sure about you guys, but I enjoy having breakfast items all throughout the day 😍 . . And this click, is from yesterday evening. With all the diwali cleaning and shopping, lunch got skipped and hunger pangs were at an all time high. Hence, quickly toasted two slices of bread, slathered them with butter, topped with a runny sunny side up and served alongside some peas and my leftover hasselback potatoes, that I further topped with more parmesan cheese, from breakfast. Omnomnom 🤤 . . Anybody else who enjoys breakfast items in the day? ✌🏼 Let me knowwww 😋 . . #CookWithKaran #hasselback #potatoes #baked #bakedpotatoes #butter #calories #delicious #foodporn #foodblogger #blogger #indianblogger #madebyme #homemade #recipe #delhi #swedish #egg #protein #sunnysideup #picoftheday #foodoftheday #foodart #letmeknow #instalike #instagood #foodphotography #doubletap #dailyfoodfeed #sonyalpha6000

1. If adding fresh herbs like thyme or rosemary, it is advisable to add them after roasting the potatoes for 30 mins.
2. If you’d like to add cheese/bacon bits/breadcrumbs et al, add them after the potatoes have fully cooked and then place them back in the oven with your topping for another 3-4 mins.
3. It’s best to serve hasselback potatoes, immediately after they are done, as the edges are the crispiest then.
