Buttery Garlic Hasselback Baby Potatoes

These are like a baked potato, chip and roast potato all in one and of course with the addition of garlic and butter, what's not to like? Perfect as a side dish, but can even be enjoy just as they are with some additional toppings.

Either way you will want to make these again and again.

Best Potatoes for Hasselback Potatoes

For hasselback potatoes you can actually use any type of potato you like, the only different being that certain potatoes may take a little longer to cook, depending on size.

Even sweet potatoes are a great potato to use for hasselback potatoes, so are great for varying up this side dish.

Can I use spray oil?

I use a little butter in this recipe, it's not many calories when divided into servings and really enhances the flavour of these hasselback potatoes, so it is well worth using it.

However if you really want to cut back the calories you can use spray oil, just be aware the final result may not be the same as what you see here.

Seasoning for Hasselback Potatoes

Seasoning is where you can experiment to create lot of different flavours for these.

I keep it simple with some paprika, onion powder and salt, along with the minced fresh garlic added to the butter. But there are many other seasonings you can add, if you like spicy potatoees, try adding some cayenne, chilli powder or hot smoked paprika.

Optional Topping for Hasselback Potatoes

I tend to keep these just as they are for a simple side dish that is great for all kinds of mains, but there is so much different toppings you can add to these.

Add in some sliced onion with potatoes for a delicious sweet caramelized onion flavour. You can also add diced peppers or top with your favourite cheese. If you are adding cheese, don't add it to the top until the last 15 minutes.

Crispy bacon pieces if you are not vegetarian is a great option also.

Best Dish for Cooking Hasselback Potatoes

You want a dish or tray that you can place the potatoes evenly with enough space for the heat to distribute around them to ensure they get lovely and golden.

I love to use my Staub Cast Iron pan - cast iron pans get really hot and retain the heat and will give a lovely colour to these potatoes.

Wondering what main courses to serve alongside these hasselback potatoes? Here are a few of my favourites:
