Simple Hasselback Potatoes Recipe

These Hasselback potatoes are not only delicious, it is picturesque too, and made a perfect pair to any food in your kitchen. The part that made us enjoyed Hasselback potatoes much is this dish uniquely combined both potatoes greatness, with crispy edge just like French fries and natural soft potato taste in the middle. 


  • 6 Scrubbed / Peeled Russet Potatoes
  • 2 tablespoon Olive Oil
  • 30g Butter 
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
  • Rosemary
  • (Optional) Grated Cheese, Panko Crumbs, Other Fresh Herbs


1. Preheat the oven to 220 °C.
2. Prepare the potatoes. I use Russet Potatoes, but Idaho Potaotes and Red Potatoes (any starchy potatoes) should be alright. Scrub or peel the skin off, it is your choice.
3. Slit the potatoes into thin slices and leave the bottom intact. Cut the potatoes into thin slices but stop just right before you cut through so the slices stay connected at the bottom. To make things easier, use chopsticks at both sides of potato as a guideline to know when to stop slicing.
4. Brush the potatoes with butter and olive oil. Arrange the potatoes on baking tray and pour olive oil to cover all the surfaces, especially the slit area. Brush the potatoes with half the butter including the bottom.
5. Season with salt and pepper. Depends on your personal preference, I like my potatoes to be a tad salty just like French fries.
6. Bake for 30 minutes and brush with the remaining butter. After baking for 30 minutes, the space between the sliced area of potatoes start to open up. Brush the remaining butter into these areas. In case some parts are still sticking, gently open it up so the butter can slip through the gap.
7. Bake for another 30 minutes. Put the potatoes back in the oven for another 30 minutes after brushing with the butter. In the last 10 minutes, add rosemary leaves (if added too early it will dry and blacken) and any other optional ingredients such as grated cheese. 
8. Enjoy your Hasselback Potatoes!
