Lemon & Herb Smashed Potatoes
Smashed potatoes have easily become one of my favorite side dishes. They’re easy to make and packed with delicious lemon and herb flavor.
They come out tender on the inside, crisp on the outside, and are the perfect side dish to any meal!
These crispy potatoes the perfect recipe for a dinner party or a weeknight meal. They pair well with my citrus & herb salmon, which has a similar marinade mixture, or my favorite falafel veggie burgers.
I love topping them with sour cream, but you can serve them with your favorite dipping sauce.
