How to Make Hasselback Potatoes in an Air Fryer

Making hasselback potoates in the air fryer is a quick way to get perfectly cooked and crispy potatoes every time.

Air Fryer Potato Side Dish Recipe

Step 1. How to cut hasselback potatoes

Cut slits, 1/4″ apart, in each potato, making sure you stop before cutting all the way through the potato. I like to use chopsticks on each side of the potato to help stop the knife from cutting the potato all the way through.
