What kind of potato is it
Hasselback potatoes or Hasselbackspotatis is the Swedish way of roasting potatoes. They became popular in the 1940s and 50s when it was first served in the Hasselbacken restaurant in central Stockholm.
Russet or Yukon gold potatoes are thinly sliced most of the way through, then seasoned with olive oil or butter and salt. The slices are connected together at the bottom.
As the potato bakes, they fan out separately which allows the butter and other seasonings a chance to flavor the whole inside of the potato. After it’s baked, you have crispy edges and a soft baked potato texture on the inside.
Hasselback potatoes are traditionally baked in the oven, but they are easy to prepare in the air fryer and make a beautiful side dish or appetizer.
