Garlic Mashed Potatoes
As we head into Thanksgiving week one of the sides to grace many tables will be mashed potatoes! I’m not going to lie growing up we lived in instant mashed potatoes. Now, I would not come near them! I guess in my mind potatoes should not be dry flakes that somehow become mashed potatoes when mixed with water.
I know, many people love instant mashed potatoes; however, these homemade mashed potatoes are much better! There are so many variations to good homemade mashed potatoes. I love mine though with garlic and butter! These cover both of those requirements!
- 6 Medium Sized Russet Potatoes, Pealed
- 1/2 Cup Milk
- 4 Tbsp Butter
- 1 Clove Crushed Garlic
- Salt/Pepper to Taste
Begin by boiling the pealed potatoes on medium heat until soft. Once soft then cut up into smaller chunks in order to be blended.
Now, put them into a large mixing bowl or the bowl with the stand mixer, add in the milk, butter, and garlic and blend/mash well.
Lastly, add salt and pepper to taste.
Yields: About 6 Cups
