Hasselback potatoes are a traditional Swedish side dish. It’s a baked potato dish where the potatoes are cut halfway through into thin slices. Then it’s seasoned with a variety of herbs or a marinade sauce and baked till crispy and served with different toppings.

The original Swedish Hasselback potato recipe uses fewer ingredients, but this recipe uses a little more for that flavorful punch.

  • Remove the skin of the potatoes if you do not wish to serve with the skin on but leaving the skin on while baking adds better flavor.
  • If you need crispier potatoes make sure you cut the potato into thin slices.
  • When applying the mixture over the potatoes make sure that you are covering the potato slits as well.
  • If you find it difficult cutting the potatoes not going all the way through then make sure to place the potato in between two wooden spoons or chopsticks.


  • Preheat the air fryer for 160°c for 05 minutes
  • Wash potatoes thoroughly and pat them dry with a kitchen towel.
  • Using a sharp knife, cut the potato into thin slices not going all the way down.
  • Prepare the marinade – Add all the ingredients into a small bowl and give it a good mix.
