Crispy Pesto Smashed Potatoes

These crispy pesto smashed potatoes are one of our favorite summer side dishes. Crispy, crunchy potato bites drizzled with fresh basil pesto. So delicious and crunchy and satisfying!

Absolutely delicious. And you need this recipe on your radar! A little pesto goes a long way and this adds variety. Really elevates a classic, simple side dish!

This is one of our go-to side dishes, especially in the summer. The combo of the hot and crunchy potatoes, with the super crispy edges PLUS the herby, refreshing pesto? Whoa. I could eat a plate of these alone for dinner. Pass me a fork.
