Our Go-to Hasselback Potatoes Recipe

Here we are for our final recipe of 2022! We decided to save a delicious Hasselback potatoes recipe for last.

Named after the restaurant in Stockholm, Sweden, with the same name where they were invented, this recipe looks impressive but is surprisingly easy to do.

Hasselbacking is a cooking method in which potatoes or other items are sliced not quite all the way through in thin, even layers, which can be stuffed or topped with additional flavorings. It's a way of creating more surface area for flavors and creating extra texture.

15 minutes
1 hour 5 minutes
4 to 6


6 medium Yukon Gold potatoes
56 g (½ stick) unsalted butter, melted
30 g (2 tablespoons) olive oil
3 g (1 teaspoon) minced garlic
Sea salt
1 g (½ teaspoon) freshly ground black pepper
4 g (½ teaspoon) chili flakes
15 g (3 tablespoons) grated Parmesan cheese
8 g (2 tablespoons) chopped fresh parsley

  1. Preheat the oven to 220 ºC (425 °F).
  2. Using a knife, slice each potato crosswise into thin slices, taking care not to cut all the way through. (For even slicing, you can lay 2 wooden spoons or chopsticks along the sides of the potatoes as guides. This keeps the knife from cutting all the way through.)
  3. Place the potatoes in a baking tray and use your hands to carefully fan the potatoes out.
  4. In a small bowl, whisk together the melted butter, olive oil, garlic, salt, pepper and chili flakes.
  5. Spoon the butter mixture over each potato, making sure to get in the cuts and coat the potatoes well, about 1 tablespoon per potato.
  6. Bake, uncovered, for 45 minutes. Sprinkle the Parmesan and parsley evenly over each potato. Return to the oven and bake until the Parmesan is melted and a little crispy, about 20 minutes. Serve hot.
