Hasselback Potatoes

This is such a fun way to cook a baked potato! It’s a cross between a baked potato, potato skins and fried potatoes.

And – you can be so creative with them!

I’m gonna give you the basics and you can create your own tater!

Start with a basic baking potato (sweet potatoes would work beautifully too!).


Balance the potato on two wooden skewers. This will prevent your knife from slicing all the way through the potato. Cut the potato into thin slices not cutting all the way through.

Drizzle the potato with two tablespoons of olive oil making sure the oil drizzles in between the slices.

Season with your favorite seasonings – again, making sure the seasonings get in between the slices. Today I used garlic salt, oregano, Parmesan cheese, kosher salt, smoked paprika and cracked pepper.

Bake at 425 degrees for about 45 minutes. The potatoes will be crunchy on the outside and tender on the inside.

Top with more seasonings, cheddar cheese, chili, Parmesan cheese or sour cream and chives like I did.

Experiment! Chili powder, your favorite barbeque rub, spice mix – the potato is your palette!

Hasselback potatoes make a sexy side dish to your favorite entree or are a great meal by themselves.

    I love Hasselback potatoes, and yours turned out beautiful! Potatoes are so versatile to add flavors, and ways to prepare them. I like it when the skins get crisp and the center stays soft. Now I’m starving!

    Great tip about the bamboo skewers, thank you!

  5. Made these for dinner tonight. Delish! To future readers I would suggest putting the skewer through the very bottom portion of the potato and then slicing (Balancing a potato on two skewers was not an easy trick). I baked mine with the skewer in and the just used a fork for leverage to pull it out when they were done baking…they were almost picture perfect. Hubby didn’t even recognize that it was a potato at first!! Thanks very much for showing off a creative and tasty new way to make potates.
