This is the first time I tried smashed potatoes and I am instantly hooked.
What an amazing texture and flavor combination, especially with the rich and delicious garlic pesto on the smashed potatoes.
I adapted this amazing recipe from Minimalist Baker (check out her gorgeous blog!).
I love it that these garlic pesto smashed potatoes are so easy to make.
First you boil the potatoes, then you smash them flat. I thoroughly had fun playing the smashing potatoe game with little G.
Then, you drizzle some olive oil, salt and black pepper on the smashed potatoes and bake them until golden brown.
The final touch is smearing the garlic pesto on the potatoes and voila, you have the most amazing, utterly scrumptious and flavorful potatoes.
They are so good that I ate so much.
Try this recipe, I assure you that your family will love you even more!
