Black Pepper Hasselback Potatoes


black pepper hassle-back potatoes

Crisp, delicious, and textured, hasselback potatoes are a fun update of the classic baked potato. These Black Pepper Hasselback Potatoes are sure to impress a dinner party. They are also really fun to eat!

Carefully make slits into your raw potatoes without cutting all the way through. This allows for all of your seasonings to penetrate the potato skin, which perfectly flavors the inside of the potato. Delicious flaky salt, freshly cracked black pepper, garlic powder, and garlic oil coat the potatoes, even inside the little nooks and crannies.

Once the potatoes are seasoned to perfection, they bake in a hot oven for about an hour. Once they come out, the slits have crisped and caramelized in the oven. While it is not fancy, it is recommended you eat these garlicky spuds with your fingers. Dip them into ranch, sour cream, or blue cheese dressing!

Update the classic baked potato! Hasselback potatoes have tons of flavor and texture, unlike any potato you’ve ever had before. Black Pepper Hasselback Potatoes will be your next food obsession.

Serves: 4 


  • 4 russet potatoes, scrubbed clean
  • ¼ cup garlic-infused extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon sea salt
  • 1 tablespoon freshly cracked black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • Flaky sea salt, for topping


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
