Air Fryer Baby Hasselback Potato Bites

The only thing more fun than a hasselback potato is a mini hasselback potato.

Baby hasselback potatoes are an adorable snack or party food. With a lightly crispy exterior and plenty of surface area to catch sauces or seasoning, what more could you possibly ask for in a potato? Using an air fryer for this recipe will save you time on deep-frying and will have the potatoes crisp up without the use of a ton of oil.

To cut a hasselback potato perfectly, use wooden chopsticks or round handles of wooden spoons on each side of the potato as a knife-stopper to create same-depth cuts.

Turn this into a truly excellent side dish by stuffing sliced onions, mushrooms, or peppers between the potato layers.

Serves 4


1 lb baby gold potatoes
Fourth and Heart Ghee Spray or other high heat cooking spray
2 tsp minced garlic or 1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
Salt and pepper to taste
Fresh parsley, chopped
Homemade aioli, for serving (optional)

How to Make It

  1. Cut each baby potato hasselback-style, cutting thin slices that stop 3/4 of the way through the potato.
  2. Spray with oil (including between the slices), toss with garlic.
  3. Preheat the air fryer to 370°F. Place the potatoes in the air fryer in a single layer, working in batches if needed. Fry them for about 18 to 20 minutes, until crisp on the outside and fork tender all the way through.
  4. Top with salt and pepper and minced parsley. Serve hot with homemade aioli (if using).
