Garlic Mashed Potatoes Recipe

Photography: Mikkel Vang

Source: Everyday Food, November 2004

Ingredients

  • 8 medium russet potatoes (about 4 pounds)
  • 1 head peeled garlic cloves (about 15)
  • Coarse salt
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 1/2 cup butter (1 stick), cut into small pieces

Directions

  1. Peel potatoes and quarter lengthwise; cut crosswise 1/2 inch thick. In a 5-quart saucepan, combine potatoes and garlic cloves; cover with water (about 8 cups) by 1 inch. Add 1 tablespoon salt.

  2. Bring to a boil; reduce heat, and simmer until potatoes are easily pierced with the tip of a paring knife, 25 to 30 minutes.

  3. Drain; return garlic and potatoes to pan. Stir over medium-high heat until dry, 1 to 2 minutes. Remove from heat.

  4. In a small saucepan, bring milk to a boil; pour over potatoes. Add butter and 1 teaspoon of salt. Mash until smooth and creamy.

    I halved the recipe but otherwise followed it to the letter even though a few of the instructions seemed odd to me. The texture turned out perfectly without being stringy, clumpy or sticky and took less time to cook than it says here. I will say as someone who really enjoys garlic and spicy things that I was slightly disappointed by how mild this recipe is. However there is still a great garlic flavor to the potatoes and the garlic cloves really add to the dish. Still, good enough to make again.

    The only mashed potatoes I make now. Enough garlic to taste garlicky, but not overwhelmingly so.

    This is a fantastic recipe! Super easy and delicious! I doubled it, bought a 10 lb bag of potatoes and used all but 4. I only used 2 cups of milk as I was unsure if I had the correct amount of potatoes. They turned out perfect! I mixed them in a kitchen aid mixer and they came out perfectly smooth. I highly recommend this recipe!!

    Super yummy! I added some manchego cheese to it for a little Spanish kick, and then sprinkled a little paprika on top right before serving.

    The garlic flavor in this is rather fetching. Added some cheddar and a bit more salt. I'll definitely use this again!
