Air Fryer Hasselback Potatoes

If you are a potato fan like me, you will love this Air Fryer Hasselback Potatoes recipe. Seasoned to perfection, crispy on the outside and soft and creamy on the inside and unique-looking potatoes are the side dish of everyone’s dreams. Plus, it’s way easier to make this fancy side dish than you might think! Essentially baked potatoes but sliced into thin, even segments that create a fanlike shape.

Why are they called Hasselback potatoes?
Hasselback potatoes got their name from the restaurant in Stockholm, Swedish where they were invented. The restaurant was called Hasselbacken and these potatoes were first served there in 1953.

Potatoes contain vitamins and minerals, including vitamin C and potassium. They may provide health benefits, depending on how they are prepared. Read more about health benefits of the potatoes: “Potatoes 101: Nutrition Facts and Health Effects”.

What is the best type of potatoes to use?
I found that using the right kind of potato for this recipe was key. The Russet potato was the best choice because of its starchy flesh and creamy texture. If you choose to leave the skin on, make sure your potatoes are washed well before cooking. I like to leave the skin on because the potato skin has more nutrients than the interior of the potato.

Air Fryer Hasselback Potatoes

These Air Fryer Hasselback Potatoes become extra-crispy on the outside while their interiors remain creamy and moist.
Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 25 minutes
Course Side Dish
Cuisine American
Servings 3


  • 3 medium Russet potatoes washed and scrubbed
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt (or to taste)
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper (or to taste)


  • Place a potato on a cutting board between two wooden spoons or chopsticks. Nestle a potato between them and, using a sharp knife, slice them into very thin slices. The wooden spoon handles or chopsticks will stop your knife from cutting the potato all the way through. Repeat with remaining potatoes.
  • In a small bowl combine the olive oil, Italian seasoning, garlic powder, salt and black pepper.
  • Place the potatoes at the bottom of your air fryer basket and brush generously with the olive oil mixture all around.
  • Cook the potatoes in a basket style air fryer at 380°F for 20-30 minutes or until the potatoes are tender when pierced with a fork.
