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.
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.
Step 2. Prepare the air fryer and potatoes
Preheat air fryer to 350 for 5 minutes. Use a brush to spread olive oil onto the potatoes and sprinkle with salt, pepper and garlic powder. Add to preheated air fryer basket.
Step 3. Cook the potatoes in the air fryer
Heat at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. When cooking cycle is complete, mix together melted butter and Parmesan cheese and spread on top of potatoes. Return to air fryer for 5 minutes. Sprinkle with chopped fresh parsley and serve immediately.
