What I Love About the Recipe

Deep frying might get the potatoes to crispy perfection, but you’ll also be getting more saturated fat. ‘

In contrast, using your Air Fryer will get the potatoes to get perfectly crispy and will cut down the cooking time too.

Step 1: Cut Potatoes

Wash the potatoes, dry them. Cut the edges of the tuber to make a cube. Place the cube on a board. On both sides, place sushi sticks. A sharp knife should be used to make non-slash cuts to the sticks in approximately 0.25-inch increments. Guide the knife strictly perpendicular to the board.

Turn the potatoes 90 degrees and continue slicing in the same manner. Place the prepared potatoes in a bowl. Dilute salt in 2 cups of water. Pour the water into the potatoes so that the liquid completely covers the vegetables. Leave the potato cubes for 15 minutes

Tips & Tricks to Make the Air Fryer Hasselback Potatoes

Ready to give this recipe a try? Here are some more tips and tricks you might want to keep in mind while you’re cooking Hasselback potatoes in Air Fryer.

  • Remember to grease your Air Fryer basket well with some olive oil before air frying the Hasselback potatoes. This will keep them from sticking to the basket.
  • Also make sure you leave a bit of space between each potato to ensure even air frying.
  • If you can’t find Russet potatoes, you could also try using red potatoes or Yukon gold potatoes for this recipe.
  • Try to choose potatoes that are roughly the same size. If you have some larger potatoes, you can chop them so that they’re all roughly the same size.
  • In addition to all the spices and seasonings that I used, you can also experiment and try using other seasonings of your choice. Minced garlic or garlic powder, Italian seasoning and salt and pepper are some good choices.
  • You can also sprinkle some cayenne or chili powder for that spicy kick if you want to.
  • Depending on your personal preference, you can choose to keep the potato skin on or remove them. Potato skins tend to crisp up nicely when you coat them in olive oil, so I would highly recommend keeping them on.
  • The key to making the perfect crispy Air Fryer Hasselback potatoes is to have the right thickness of the potato slices. Thin slices are, obviously, much better than thicker slices.

How to Serve the Air Fryer Hasselback Potatoes

The crispy skin of the Hasselback potatoes can be a nice contrast with any creamy topping.

While sour cream is an absolute classic you can never go wrong with, you can also try teaming it up with some ranch dressing or even just some grated cheese and your favorite toppings.

You can also prepare a simple butter mixture by mixing melted butter with some garlic powder and your favorite herbs and seasonings, and drizzling it over your hasselback potatoes towards the end,

Don’t forget to top the crispy Air Fryer Hasselback potatoes with some chopped fresh herbs of your choice. Fresh parsley and chives are two good options.

How Do I Store the Leftovers

Your leftover Air Fryer Hasselback potatoes can be stored in the refrigerator for 3 days, if not longer.

Just remember to store them in a clean, airtight container to keep it fresh. You can then reheat it in the microwave, but it won’t retain its crispy texture.

To get those perfect crispy edges, you’ll need to reheat it in the Air Fryer.
