Roasted Hasselback Potatoes are perfect for everyday meals, special dinners and holiday gatherings.

The holidays are coming and we need to have a collection of recipes at the ready! These hasselback potatoes are an easy go-to side dish and they can be adapted to compliment any meal. Try serving with tequila lime pork chops!

What type of potato do I use?

I used red potatoes, but you could use your favorite potato or whatever potato you have on hand. You could also use Yukon gold, a white potato or even a small russet potato. 

I always seem to have a bag or two of potatoes in my pantry which is perfect for pulling a side dish together and not having to rush off to the grocery store.

I left the peel on, but you can just as easily remove the peel. For me, red potato skins are thin and add flavor. If I was using a russet potato, I’d probably peel them.

Decide what best fits your needs and your personal preferences.

These potatoes are completely versatile. With the red potatoes, I plan on one potato per person. You can also adjust according to the number at your dinner table and also adjust to the size of your dish.  You do want your dish to be filled. It just works better that way.

Do you see those crispy edges? That’s my favorite part!  These potatoes remind me a bit of the crunchy outsides on Smashed Potatoes.

What ingredients do I need?

I made these Roasted Hasselback Potatoes with olive oil, fresh thyme and fresh rosemary. I gave them a sprinkle of coarse salt when they came out of the oven. The choice of seasonings is almost endless.

Additional Seasoning Options:

  • Garlic and Parmesan Cheese – add mince garlic and shredded Parm during the final 45 minutes.
  • Fresh parsley – add chopped parsley during the final 45 minutes of baking and again just before serving.
  • Bacon and sour cream – add cook bacon bits the final 20 minutes.  Add a dollop of sour cream when serving.
  • Fresh dill – Sprinkle fresh chopped dill weed after potatoes are fully cooked.
  • Taco seasonings – Sprinkle potatoes with taco seasoning prior to baking.

Tips for making roasted hasselback potatoes:

Most Hasselback potatoes are not sliced all the way through. The bottom is attached. I did things a bit different and sliced all the way through. I did so for a couple of reasons. First, I wanted this to be a true casserole where everyone dishes up a scoopful of potatoes. They might get a full potato or if you’re like my daughter, just a few slices.

The second reason is I bought a new kitchen toy; a mandolin! I’ve wanted one for years, but just never bought one. This summer I found one on sale and I just had to buy it. It has sat in my cupboard all summer long just waiting for me to use! Using a mandolin makes life easier – especially when slicing potatoes. They are all exactly the same thickness!

    Hi Kathy! These hasselback potatoes looks SO good. Yum. Those crispy edges. Thanks for the tips about to peel or not to peel, based on the potato type. I was unaware that red skins are thinner! Good to know. Thanks for another great post!

      I like the taste of the skin too, plus it has lots of nutrients in the skin!

    I love haselback potatoes and your beautiful pictures put me in the mood to make them again. I like the fact that you don’t use so much fat, I’ve seen recipes using half a pound of butter or so.

      I do love butter, but these just don’t need it!

    These potatoes look like the perfect side dish for the holidays, Kathy! I love hasselback potatoes with the combination of soft and crispy! I seriously could make an entire meal out of just these potatoes. In fact, I might just have to do that soon…these look SO good! 🙂
