We Are Using Russet Potatoes
Gather your potatoes.
Hasselback potatoes are a new favorite for dinner in our household. Although they look complicated, they are really simple to make. The cooking time in the air-fryer is under an hour total. We are using a few simple seasonings, but you can easily get away with using just sea salt, and black pepper. Before you attempt to cut the potatoes, place them in a large spoon, or any other kind of container that they will fit in, and not slip out of. That makes it easier to stop yourself from cutting all the way through the potato by mistake.
Cutting the Potatoes
I used a small metal paring knife here, but I normally use my ceramic paring knife for this task. As you can see, it works well. The sharper your knife is, the less time this takes. Also, with practice, you will get faster as well. Go in easy with the knife. Slice down and towards you, trying not to cut to close to the bottom of the potato.
Brush on Seasonings Before Cooking
Oil is optional.
If you want to keep this recipe oil-free, you can use just dry herbs and seasonings on your potatoes. It works well either way. Once you put them in the air-fryer, cook the potatoes for 25 minutes. Then pull them out, and brush on some more olive oil, and seasonings. Put them back in the air-fryer at 400 degrees for another 20-25 minutes. The cooking time will be less when you use smaller potatoes.
Sprinkling on some sea salt.
Once they are done, you can pull them out of the air-fryer, and serve them with any of your favorite plant-based dishes. Here are enjoying a chick’n caesar salad with our Hasselback Potatoes.
