Fried Smashed Potatoes With Lemon

047

So this is probably next favorite potato recipe aside from the Mustard Roasted Potatoes.

It is relatively easy and is not fussy at all!

I found this from Giada De Laurentiis and I still make it on the regular!

The only thing I suggest is to not get excited and squeeze the lemon right into the dressing.

A little goes a long way, especially with lemons….

Let me tell you, the first time I made this I got too into the lemon and needless to say, my roommate Dave dubbed them Lemon Meringue Smashed Potatoes.

Do what I say, not what I do. Haha
