Garlic Mashed Potatoes

potatoGarlic Mashed Potatoes

This is a delicious variation on a side-dish classic.  This is great for pot lucks because is goes with almost any main dish. This recipe is especially tasty with Crockpot Deer, roast or even Russian Chicken.

Ingredients:1

1 lb. Red Potatoes

3 Tablespoons Butter

1/4 Cup Half and Half, or Milk

4 cloves Roasted Garlic

Directions:

To really get their flavor, these potatoes need to be baked, not boiled. So bake them in a 350-degree oven for about 20-30 minutes. This would be a great time to roast that garlic too. You can either use a traditional roaster, or you may wrap a bulb of garlic in foil and roast that, be sure to coat the bulb with some olive oil before you roast it. Remove potatoes from oven and allow them to cool. You can leave the peelings on or off; I like to leave a few of them on. Chop potatoes, add butter, and half and half, and mix with an electric mixture. Add cloves of garlic, and salt and pepper to taste. You will want to heat these potatoes in a saucepan until they warm up again.
