🧀 How To Make

Step 1: First, start by rinsing and cleaning your potatoes. I love using a potato scrubber to help remove any dirt and debris.

Step 2: Next, preheat your air fryer to 350 degrees. Then while the air fryer is heating up, you will work on slicing your potatoes.

Step 3: To slice the potatoes the Hasselback style, you will do thin slices, not cutting through the entire potato. I leave the bottom of the potato uncut.

Step 4: Brush the thin sliced baked potatoes with oil, and salt and pepper. You will want to brush or spritz air fryer with cooking oil. Air fry for 20 minutes.

Step 5: At the 20-minute mark, open up and check on the air fryer potatoes. If they are looking close to being done, brush with oil again, and sprinkle grated parmesan.

Step 6: Lastly, you will bake another 5-10 minutes or until potatoes are done.


If you don’t eat all your potatoes right away, they will store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to five days.

You can reheat in the microwave, or opt for oven or air fryer to help crisp up the skins of the potato again. Heat until the potato is warmed through.

Here are some tips for this fancy potatoes recipe! These tips will help you to have the best success making crispy potatoes that are thinly sliced for a hasselback baked potato.

  • Make sure you get oil in the creases of the potato slices, to ensure you get a crispy potato, as it can dry out as it air fries.

  • Depending on the size of the potatoes the cooking time will vary.
  • For extra crispy potatoes cook the fried potatoes a bit longer in the air fryer.
