Garlic Mashed Potatoes

Recipe: Garlic Mashed Potatoes


Serves 4 to 6


    4 Russet potatoes

    1 Tbl pressed garlic, or garlic from a jar

    2 tsp salt

    4 Tbl butter

    1/2 cup milk or cream or sour cream


    Peel potatoes and cut into 1-inch wide disks. (They'll look like little white hockey pucks.) Put them in a pan and cover with tap water. Make sure the water line is about 1/2 inch or more above the potatoes.

    Bring the potatoes to a boil. Cook them on a low boil for 15 to 20 minutes. You can tell when they are done by poking them with a sharp knife. If it slides through easily, you're ready to drain them.

    Drain the water out. Add the garlic, the salt, the butter, and the milk, cream or sour cream.

    Mash the potatoes with your mixer or masher. Quit when you have them to the consistency you like. Some like some lumps, some don't.
