If you like garlic you have to try these mashed potatoes. Cooking the garlic and potatoes infuses the dish with a wonderful aroma. Don’t be afraid to use more garlic to your own taste!
- 2 medium russet potatoes, about 1 pound
- 4 or more garlic cloves, peeled and crush
- ⅓ cup milk
- 2 Tbsp. butter
Peel potatoes and quarter lengthwise then cut crosswise into ½-inch thick pieces. Place in a saucepan along with the garlic and enough water to cover by 1 inch. Season with ¼ tsp. of the salt.
Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer until potatoes are easily pierced with the tip of a paring knife, 25 to 30 minutes.
Drain the pan and return to medium heat for 1 or 2 minutes to dry somewhat. Remove from heat.
Warm the milk in a small saucepan and pour over the potatoes. Add the butter and mash until smooth. Adjust salt to taste.
