Garlic Mashed Potatoes Recipe


  • 1 1⁄2 pounds Yukon gold potatoes, peeled (Red potatoes and russets both do the trick, but Yukon golds, with their smooth, buttery taste and texture, make for the best mash.)
  • 1 cup low-fat milk
  • 2 Tbsp butter
  • 5-6 cloves roasted garlic
  • Salt and black pepper to tastenull


  1. Place the potatoes in a large pot of salted water and bring to a boil.
  2. Cook until a knife inserted into the flesh meets no resistance, about 25 minutes. Drain.
  3. While the potatoes boil, combine the milk, butter, and garlic in a small saucepan and heat until the butter is melted. Keep warm.
  4. Use a potato masher or a large wooden spoon to break up the large chunks of potatoes in a rough purée. (If you have a potato ricer, use it—nothing yields smoother mashed potatoes.)
  5. Slowly add the hot milk mixture to the potatoes, using a wooden spoon to beat continuously. Season with salt and black pepper.
