How to make these Garlic Butter Hasselback Potatoes:

Make sure you wash the potatoes really well when preparing to make these easy baked Hasselback Potatoes because you won’t be peeling these babies. Use a sharp knife to thinly slice them. Just watch out for those fingers!

In a small bowl mix melted butter (or oil), with chili, garlic, and rosemary. These will still taste great if you decide to use olive oil instead of butter.

After you slice the potatoes, you then brush the garlic oil or butter mixture over the potatoes and then sprinkle some salt and pepper on them. If you want to make these Baked Hasselback Potatoes spicy this would be the time to add some chili flakes or cayenne pepper.

Pop them in the preheated oven for 45 minutes or so until the potatoes are crispy looking or golden brown.

    Made these yesterday with olive oil. I agree with longer cooking time and also would make them with butter next time as I found they were kinda bland-ish

      I agree. Everything tastes so much better with butter! Timing to vary depending on the size of the potato and oven. Glad you liked them

    Tasted great but not after 45min. Not enough time to fully cook it through to the bottom. Maybe an extra 15 min needed. Easy and delicious recipe though!
