garlic mashed potatoes

Mashed potatoes go great with everything!!
6 Cups Peeled Potatoes
8 Garlic Cloves
1 teaspoon olive oil
1/2 Cup Cream
2 Tablespoons Butter
Salt to taste
Freshly ground Black Pepper

Peel potatoes and place them in a saucepan and fill with water, sprinkle in about 1/2 a teaspoon of salt and bring the water to a boil. Let the potatoes simmer for about 25 minutes until they are soft enough to be pricked quite easily with a fork.

Once the potatoes are cooked, drain out the water and shake the pot so that the potatoes break up slightly and are easier to mash. Place the garlic cloves along with some cream and butter into the pot and top with some pepper and salt to give a great taste to the potatoes. Place the lid back on to let the ingredients mix and leave time for the butter to melt.

Now it’s time to actually mash the potatoes, there are 2 ways this can be done, you can either use an electric mixer to make it more smooth and creamy, or simply use a potato masher for a homemade texture. I do them bot way depending on what I am serving them with. ENJOY!!
