Hasselback Potatoes

Hasselback Potatoes

I’ve always wanted to try these potatoes and decided to finally give them a try after seeing them on What Do I Want To Cook Today. They were extremely easy to make with very little cleanup. My entire family enjoyed these delicious potatoes. I look forward to trying them again with different herbs and seasonings. Thanks for the inspiration Jan.

Hasselback Potatoes:


  • 3 russet potatoes
  • Olive oil
  • Sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste
  • Dried basil, to taste
  • Garlic cloves, sliced into thin slivers

How to Make Hasselback Potatoes

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

After washing the potatoes well, thinly slice each potato, being careful not to cut all the way through. (Place the potato on a large serving spoon so you won’t cut all the way through).

Season each potato with basil, sea salt, and freshly cracked pepper to taste. Place a thin slice of garlic between each layer. Place the potatoes in a baking dish and drizzle with olive oil.

Hasselback PotatoesBake for 1 hour or until the potato is tender. Serve with butter and sour cream if desired. Enjoy.

  2. This is one of my favorite potato recipes. Hasselbackspotato is a classic swedish potato dish! My father used to make it at home at least once a week.

    I am glad I found your blog, many inspirational recipes! Look forward to reading more!

  3. I like the presentation- it is different than how you usually serve potatoes. I may have to give these a try 🙂
    A relative needs his potatoes soaked before cooking. I am wondering if these could be cut before soaking? Or maybe would be better to wait to after they have soaked?
    I wondered if you have a potato pancake recipe? I haven't seen one on your blog yet but I may be

  4. Michelle,

    I have never soaked potatoes so I am not sure what the best answer is.

    I don't have any potato pancake recipes but they sound delicious!
