Hasselback Potato Casserole
Have you made Hasselback potatoes? They’re a twist on baked potatoes created in Sweden–basically a fanned baked potato which increases the surface area available for seasoning. The insides are creamy while the exposed surfaces bake up to crispy deliciousness. But to make these for a crowd can be a bit daunting. I served this Hasselback Potato Casserole to my dinner club for brunch. They all wanted the recipe, especially once I explained how simple it was to make!
Tips for Making This Potato Casserole
I found the inspiration for this hasselback potatoes recipe on a fellow blogger’s site (see link below). Laura used a combination of Yukon golds and sweet potatoes. I skipped the orange spuds so as not to scare off the picky hubby.
- PRO-Tip: Use a mandoline to slice the pototoes, so they’re of a consistent size. This ensures all slices will be done baking at the same time.
- Toss the potatoes and onions in olive oil and season liberally with salt, pepper and fresh minced rosemary. Potatoes need plenty of salt or they will be bland! But over salting is not reversible.
- Feel free drizzle on some butter, use thyme instead of rosemary, add some minced garlic or alternate the Yukon gold potato slices with sweet potato slices for a colorful potato medley.
- This easy casserole can be made in any size you’d like, just poke your potatoes to make sure they’re tender before uncovering them for the browning stage.
This hasselback potato casserole is perfect for entertaining, serving for the holidays, or even weeknight dinners. My dinner club friends ALL wanted the recipe. A fine endorsement.
Hasselback Potato Casserole
A twist on the Hasselback potato made in a casserole for a crowd.
- 2 pounds Yukon Gold (or similar potato), peeled and sliced very thinly (you may need more or less depending on your dish size)
- 1/2 medium onion, sliced very thinly
- 3 tablespoons Olive oil
- Kosher salt
- Freshly ground black pepper
- 2 teaspoons minced fresh rosemary
- Pre-heat the oven to 400º.
- Grease a standard loaf pan with olive oil and set aside.
- In one bowl, toss the sliced potatoes with enough olive oil to lightly coat. Do the same in a separate bowl with the onions.
- Season the potatoes generously with salt, pepper, and rosemary.
- Arrange the potatoes in the prepared dish, adding enough so they stand upright. Insert onion slices between some of the potato slices. Sprinkle with a little more salt.
- Cover the dish with foil and bake for 1 hour. Uncover and bake another 15 minutes or more until potatoes are tender.
- Serve hot or at room temperature.
Season liberally as potatoes will be bland without salt.

So simple looking Liz yet amazing flavour! Love potatoes in any way, but this recipe is worth making asap! If the book club says so…
Liz, Hasselbeck potatoes always get raving reviews at our house – I love, love them – your version looks extremely elegant and utterly addictive! I should really make them again very soon!
Looks absolutely delicious! I’m going to volunteer to make this at my SILs for Christmas dinner!
Hasselback potatoes are gorgeous. I love that you turned it into a casserole in a nice dish. Looks great!
What an amazing potato dish! Such a beautiful presentation. I’m going to have to try this with sweet potatoes since I just bought a 10 pound sack. They might cook a little faster. What do you think?
Hasselbacks to the next level! Amazing, thanks so much, sharing on fb!
Yes, please! I love potatoes and this casserole looks and sounds amazing!!
These potatoes do make a good presentation and perfect for entertaining. I love this alternative to regular hasselback potatoes, which are great but can be a pain to make.
What a delicious looking dish! It looks so special, I can imagine serving this on the Christmas table.
Thanks for sharing
Never heard of Hasselback potatoes but amazing idea. Love the crispy top and the presentation is great!
Liz, I’m honored that you did this adaptation of my recipe. (Mine is inspired by an Ottolenghi recipe, though we’ve both moved pretty far afield from his original.) Yours looks so elegant – I’m glad your guests and husband were as pleased with it as we were.
Hasselback potatoes are so much fun, aren’t they? Super flavor. Love this idea of this casserole — this is a better dish in many ways. Very creative — thanks.
Beautiful, nice for a fancier dinner at home. Elegant.
Simple, beautiful and..potatoes! I think I could eat it alone 😀
No wonder people wanted this! It’s such a great variation on the hasselback potatoes, which are lovely but SO time consuming. Now I want to have these for dinner instead of what I have planned!
Wow. A bit of yogurt on the side and it’s my perfect meal.
Very pretty! Such a fun idea for the holidays:@)
I’ve got the same casserole, I’ll give it a go.
Absolutely delicious and comforting!
Hasselback potatoes are so good, and this is such a smart way to serve them up for a crowd!
