Upgrade your batch of baby potatoes with buttery goodness and fresh herbs! Garlic Parmesan Smashed Potatoes, topped with a lemon aioli drizzle, are crispy on the outside and creamy within.
Baked. Mashed. Scalloped. Stuffed. Sautéed. Topped with the works. Potatoes are always destined to taste spectacular no matter how they’re prepared. What’s your favorite version? With so many options, making plans for a basic bag of yellow taters may be harder than it looks. As someone who thoroughly enjoys her carbs, to the last bite, I was excited to finally make these crispy Garlic Parmesan Smashed Potatoes. They’ve been on my mind for weeks after trying a similar version using sweet potatoes and brown sugar. While I love the combination of sweet and salty, sometimes savory is the way to go and that’s especially true with this recipe.
Seasoned with fresh garlic and rosemary, Crispy Garlic Parmesan Smashed Potatoes may be flat but there’s nothing bland about them. I’ve even added a light and creamy lemon aioli drizzle to tie all of the flavors together. Absolutely delicious. I wouldn’t be surprised if these are devoured immediately!
Eating and entertaining is practically inevitable this time of year. A plate of these tasty ‘tatoes will be the star of your next summer shindig. Everyone loves a good side to pair with their hamburger or hot dog. Smash, smother with seasonings, and serve! Then wait for the smiles.
For a crisper outer shell, you can toss the potatoes on the grill instead of baking. There’s nothing better than slightly charred potato skins and the fragrant aroma of rosemary heating above a fire.
