Hasselback Potatoes Recipe

I love classic potatoes, and I firmly believe that simple is best. But if you are looking for a delicious and impressive side dish to serve at your next get-together, these Hasselback Potatoes are the answer! These crispy and flavour-packed potatoes are sliced thinly and then roasted to perfection, making them a stunning addition to any meal. Simply slice the potatoes almost all the way through, brush with parsley butter, sprinkle with salt and bake until crispy and golden brown. Finally, they are topped with a crispy panko breadcrumb and Parmesan cheese topping, making them the perfect side to impress your guests! 

Can you make Hasselback Potatoes ahead of time?

Yes, peel and slice the potatoes. Submerge fully in water (do not add any salt or seasoning as the potatoes will brown) and refrigerate for up to 24 hours. Drain and pat dry with a paper towel when ready to cook.

Are Hasselback Potatoes suitable for leftovers?

Yes, Hasselback Potatoes can be refrigerated for up to 2 days. Reheat in the microwave (the potatoes will soften) or oven to retain crunch. Not suitable to freeze.
