Garlic Mashed Potatoes

This recipe is a unique turn on the traditional mashed potatoes that every American has learned to love. Serve with melted butter or your favorite gravy. This is an excellent dish to serve with turkey, roast beef, or any other traditional American main course.
  • Potatoes (3 lbs.)
  • Elephant garlic (1 clove)
Prepare the potatoes for cooking by cutting into cubes approximately 3/4 inches square and put them into a pot for boiling. Cover them with water, add one clove of elephant garlic, and bring to a boil.

Cook the potatoes until they are tender by the pierce of a fork (about 40 minutes). Pour off the excess water, and begin mashing with a potato masher or whip with a mixer. Add milk in the process until the potatoes have reached the desired thickness.

Regular garlic may be used in place of elephant garlic, but it will have a stronger flavor as the elephant garlic is mild. If using regular garlic, use one small clove, or use ΒΌ tsp. of garlic powder as a substitute.

  • Yields: 12 servings
  • Preparation Time: 45 minutes
