  • Chopped fresh parsley or chives for garnish (optional)


1. Prep the Potatoes:

a. Preheat your air fryer to 400°F (200°C).

b. Wash and scrub the potatoes thoroughly. Pat them dry with a paper towel.

2. Make Hasselback Cuts:

4. Air Fry the Potatoes:

Place the seasoned potatoes in the preheated air fryer basket.

Air fry for about 35-45 minutes or until the potatoes are tender on the inside and crispy on the outside. Cooking time may vary depending on your specific air fryer model and the size of the potatoes.

5. Add Cheese:

a. In the last 5-10 minutes of cooking, open the air fryer and sprinkle shredded cheese between the Hasselback slices.

b. Close the air fryer and allow the cheese to melt and become gooey.

6. Garnish and Serve:

a. Once the potatoes are cooked and the cheese is melted, remove them from the air fryer.

b. Drizzle melted butter over the top and garnish with chopped fresh parsley or chives if desired.

7. Serve:

Serve the cheesy Hasselback potatoes hot as a side dish. They are great for serving with grilled meats, as part of a holiday meal, or as a delightful addition to any dinner table.
