Potatoes are such a versatile and delicious side dish, but hassle-back potatoes add a special touch to any meal. The slices in the potatoes crisped up with the butter and cheese provide a unique texture and flavor.
Here’s how to make air fryer hassle-back potatoes:
- 4 medium potatoes (any kind will do)
- ¼ cup butter, melted
- ½ Tsp salt
- ½ Tsp black pepper
- ¼ cup parmasan cheese
Preheat your air fryer to 350°F.
Wash and dry the potatoes, using chopsticks, and slice the potatoes lengthwise into ¼-inch slices (make sure you don’t cut all the way through).
Place the potatoes in the air fryer, using a pasty brush, and brush the half the melted butter over the potatoes.
Place the potatoes in your preheated air fryer basket and cook for 45-50 minutes at 350°F
Halfway through the cooking brush on more butter and top with parmesan cheese, salt and pepper.
Once the potatoes are golden and crisp, serve as a side dish or enjoy as a snack!

We recommend using salted butter for this recipe as it adds more flavor to the potatoes. It’s also important to make sure your butter is melted before brushing over each potato so that it doesn’t stick.
