Ingredients

  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 cloves garlic, smashed
  • 1 1/2 pounds russet potatoes, peeled and cut into large chunks
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons coarse salt
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground white pepper

Directions

  1. Step 1

    In a medium saucepan, melt butter over medium-low heat. Add garlic and cook, stirring occasionally, until garlic caramelizes, 6 to 7 minutes. Remove from heat; let cool slightly.

  2. Step 2

    Chop garlic and return to saucepan. Add cream and warm over medium heat.

  3. Step 3

    Meanwhile, in a medium saucepan, combine potatoes and 1 teaspoon salt. Add just enough water to cover. Bring to a boil over high heat and cook until potatoes are easily pierced with a fork, about 12 minutes. Remove from heat and drain. Return potatoes to saucepan and cook, over medium heat, mashing with a heavy whisk, about 1 minute. Add garlic-cream mixture and continue mashing until smooth. Season with remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt and white pepper; mix well. Keep warm until ready to serve.

    I usually add roasted garlic to my mashed potatoes but sometimes you just don't have time to roast it. :) I tried this out and found it was just as good in a slightly different way. I really really enjoyed them. I will be making them again. Oh, I did add sour cream though and only used a touch of regular milk. I can't go without the little tang the cream gives the potatoes. :)

    Mashed potatoes done this way are great. We love a lot of garlic so I used 4 cloves of garlic and used cream plus some milk to the mashed potatoes. Delicious.
