  • Small yellow potatoes – These little yellow potatoes are super creamy on the inside, and since they’re small, they’ll crisp up quickly in the air fryer.
  • Salt – Salt is crucial here, to make sure your potatoes are perfectly seasoned. 
  • Olive oil spray – I like to use olive oil spray, that way I’m still able to brown and crisp up the potatoes without using too much oil. 


Making air fryer hasselback potatoes couldn’t be easier!

Going slowly, cut about 10 slices into each potato about ¾ of the way through (don’t go all the way!)

Spray them with a little olive oil spray, sprinkle with salt, and pop them into the air fryer!

Air Fryer FAQ

An air fryer is a tabletop convection oven.
It mimics the outcome of a deep-fat fryer but without oil. Hot hair is moved around via a fan that quickly and crisply cooks the food. The two most common air fryers you’ll see are basket-style (that is what I have) or convection/toaster oven-style. There are pluses to both, but I prefer my basket style.

I prefer the basket-style air fryer as it’s smaller and takes up less room than the toaster oven-style air fryer. My biggest tip regarding air fryers is to pick a style that will work best for your family and the amount of food you will cook. My large basket-style air fryer can cook up to 12 wings, 2-4 servings of french fries, etc., which works well for my household.

The answer to this will depend on your brand. It is ALWAYS best to double-check all brand recommendations by reading your user manual or visiting their website and seeing if they address this question on their site. My air fryer brand is basket style, and the outer and inner baskets are dishwasher safe.


It’s really up to you! 

I like leaving the skins on, not only because they get extra crispy and crunchy, but because that’s where a lot of nutrients live like vitamins C and B, potassium, and iron!

These delicious potatoes are so good with anything! 

But I love to serve them as a side to some hearty Mississippi Pot Roast, or juicy Crispy Roast Pork


Any leftover air fryer hasselback potatoes can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.

  • Air Fryer



  • Slice each potato 10 times, making sure not to cut all the way through the potato. You want to have no larger than ¼ inch slices that go no more than ¾ of the way through the potato.
  • Add the potatoes cut side up to the air fryer (make sure not to overcrowd the air fryer basket) and spray them with olive oil spray. Sprinkle each potatoes lightly with kosher salt.
  • Cook at 400 degrees F for 10-12 minutes or until the potatoes are crisp and golden brown. Serve warm or store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to two days.


  • I’m using baby golden potatoes but fingerling or baby red potatoes will also work. 
  • Olive oil spray helps the potatoes crisp in the air fryer.
