Insanely Delicious Garlic Mashed Potatoes Recipe
I really love old-fashioned mashed potatoes – so easy to make and always a hit.
Start with roasting the garlic. You’ll only need a few garlic cloves in this recipe as too much garlicky flavor will ruin the dish. Cover all the cloves in an aluminum foil and roast in the oven for about 35-40 minutes. Once cooled, peel the cloves and this will go into the mashed potatoes at a later stage of the cooking process.
Next up, cook the potatoes. The potatoes need to be tender, soft and fluffy. To be exact, easily mashable with a fork or potato masher. And don’t forget to add some salt to the potatoes over the stovetop. If you are after a vegan version of this recipe, don’t forget to reserve some of the cooking liquid. All the details are in the ‘notes’ section of the recipe.
Apart from the roasted garlic, the second key element that makes this garlic mashed potatoes absolutely delish is browned butter. Simply melt the butter in a pan and let it just start to brown before adding in potatoes. Then you add butter, garlic and milk to mash the potatoes into fluffy deliciousness. I also like to add some dried oregano to pump up the flavor.
Easy, delicious side for all mashed potato lovers!
