Garlicky Mashed Potatoes
Recipe type: Side Dish
Cuisine: American
Serves: 4
  • 6 potatoes
  • 8 cloves garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 Tablespoons butter
  • 1/4 Cup milk
  • white pepper, to taste
  1. Peel potatoes and cut into quarters. Place in medium saucepan with garlic and salt; add enough cold water to cover.
  2. Bring to boil over high heat. Reduce heat to medium; simmer, covered 25 to 30 minutes or until potatoes are tender.
  3. Drain well; return saucepan to turned-off burner to dry potatoes. Mash roughly.
  4. With electric hand mixer or wooden spoon, beat in butter and enough milk to make a creamy consistency. Season with pepper to taste.
  5. Serve at once.
Always be sure to serve Mashed Potatoes piping hot. As they cool, the consistency and flavor change making them often less than desirable.

Use Russet or Yukon Gold potatoes for this. Avoid waxy ones like New Potatoes.
