I don't know anyone who does not like mashed potatoes. I LOVE mashed potatoes and love garlic mashed potatoes even more. I make these all the time and wanted to share this with you. It is so easy!
Here is what you'll need:
- 2 lbs potatoes
- 1/2 stick butter
- 5 cloves garlic, minced
- 1/3 cup heavy cream
- 1/3 cup milk
- salt and pepper
Bring the potatoes to a boil and let boil for 50 minutes.
Let the potatoes cool and then peel off the skin of the potato. Quarter the peeled potato and add to a medium bowl.
In a medium pan heat up the butter and add the minced garlic.
Saute for about 3 - 4 minutes.
Mash the potatoes up with a large spoon and then start to beat with a hand mixer.
(there is that crazy kid again!)
Now add the melted butter and garlic to the bowl. Heat up the cream and milk in the microwave for about 15-25 seconds. (this is a trick my Dad taught me, it helps prevent lumps)
Continue beating while slowly adding the cream/milk. Once all the cream/milk is added continue to beat until you have a nice creamy consistency. Add salt and pepper to taste.
There you have Garlic Mashed Potatoes!
