Garlic mashed potatoes

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!
