Hasselback Potatoes are baked roasted potatoes originally from Sweden. Cut for 3/4 lengthwise in thin slices, they are slightly crispy on the outside and buttery tender on the inside.

Seasoned with butter, garlic, and rosemary, they are one of the best classic roasted potatoes, appetizer or side dishes you could taste! You can also stuff with cheese, ham, Parmesan, bread crumbs…give free rein to your creativity!

Serves: 4 Nutrition facts: 200 calories 20 grams fat


  • 700 g (25 oz) small size Potatoes
  • 50 g (1/4 cup) Unsalted Butter
  • 3 tablespoons (40 g) Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1 clove Garlic
  • Fresh Aromatic Herbs: Rosemary, Thyme
  • Salt
  • Freshly ground Black Pepper
  • Fresh chopped parsley (optional)


  1. Wash and dry potatoes.
  2. Insert a wooden skewer lengthwise through the potato, near to the bottom. This will prevent from slicing through the potato all the way.
  3. Lay the potato flat with the skewer at the bottom and make medium thin parallel cuts down to the skewer, about 3 mm – 0,1 inch apart.
  4. Remove the skewer and place the potato on a large bowl.
  5. Repeat for every potato. Every potato will be cut in slices leaving unsliced 6mm - ¼ inch at the bottom.
  6. In a small saucepan place Butter, Extra Virgin Olive Oil, a clove of garlic, fresh rosemary and thyme sprig and two pinches of salt.
  7. Heat over low-medium heat and let simmer for about 4 minutes (don’t burn the garlic).
  8. Pour over the potatoes and evenly coat them.
  9. Place them on baking tray lined with parchment paper.
  10. Season with salt and freshly ground Balck Pepper.
  11. Bake in preheated oven at 200°C – 390°F for about 25 minutes, then brush them with the remaining butter mix and bake again until browned and crispy (about 15 minutes).
  12. Sprinkle with freshly chopped parsley and serve immediately with Ranch Sauce (optional) or your favourite deep sauce.
