Garlic Mashed Potatoes

  • Serves 6.


  • 6 large Idaho potatoes
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 4 Tablespoons butter
  • 3/4 cup milk or half-and-half
  • Salt and pepper to taste


Cut potatoes into small pieces and boil until fork tender. Remove from heat and drain. Melt butter and warm 3/4 cup of milk or half-and-half. Mash potatoes, either with a hand masher or with a mixer, adding garlic, butter, salt, and pepper. Once lumps are out of the potatoes, slowly add milk, mashing until desired consistency is reached. You may not need all the milk. Check for seasonings and adjust to taste.
