Recipe: Roasted Garlic Mashed Potatoes

I love garlic mashed potatoes… we are a garlic loving family… when I started making roasted garlic mashed potatoes … liking them no longer applied… I became obsessed … roasted garlic has this wonderful buttery light flavor… that just melts in your mouth… a perfect combination with creamy mashed potatoes.


You can either roast a head of garlic just for this dish… or you can use already roasted garlic... if you keep some in a jar in your refrigerator like I do. If you do use previously roasted garlic.. you will need approximately 1 ½ teaspoons… or to taste…

If you need instructions on how to roast garlic… it’s super quick and easy… see my previous post for a step by step instruction.

I personally like to use Yukon Gold potatoes when I make creamy mashed potatoes… you can use whichever variety you prefer.

So… let’s get to making the best Roasted Garlic Mashed Potatoes you will ever eat… promise!

Recipe: Roasted Garlic Mashed Potatoes

All you need:

4 large Yukon Gold Potatoes
1 tablespoon salt
½ cup milk
4-6 tablespoons unsalted butter
¼ teaspoon ground pepper
3 tablespoons heavy cream
1 roasted head of garlic or 1 ½ teaspoons roasted garlic
Salt to taste

All you need to do:

Peel and dice the potatoes… making sure the pieces are the same size so they cook in the same amount of time.

Place in a large pot with 1 tablespoon salt and cover with water and bring to a boil.
Turn down the heat and simmer the potatoes about 20 minutes or until fork tender.

Drain and return to the pot or place into the bowl of an electric mixer.

Heat the milk and 4 tablespoons butter until butter is just melted.

Mash the potatoes and the roasted garlic until desired consistency.

Add the milk and butter mixture and stir.

Add the heavy cream and stir.

Add the ground black pepper and stir.

Salt to taste.

Pour the mashed potatoes into a large serving bowl.

Cut the remaining 2 tablespoons of butter into small “pats” and add them on top of the potatoes.
