I can't believe I haven't posted a recipe for garlic mashed potatoes. Every restaurant in the country has been servings these for years. After a recent trip to Florida my nephew decided he just had to have garlic mashed potatoes at every meal that I cooked. In a month and a half I have made them about 20 times. I think that it's important that I point out here that he doesn't really like garlic and doesn't eat sour cream. Right!
I'm linking to Tuesdays at the Table. Come on over for more wonderful recipes.
Garlic Mashed Potatoes
2-3 nice servings or 1 for my nephew
3 medium-baking potatoes, in my case they have to be Yukon Gold, peeled and chopped
1 teaspoon salt
4 tablespoons butter (1/2 stick) at room temperature
1/4 cup sour cream, at room temperature
1 teaspoon finely minced garlic, I grate mine on the micro plane, about 3 cloves
Whole milk, start with 1 tablespoon, at room temperature
Salt and pepper
Cook the potatoes in salted water until tender, about 15 minutes. Drain the potatoes and return them to the saucepan.
Add the butter, sour cream, and garlic. Mash the potatoes with a potato masher or the back of a fork until the ingredients are blended. Add the milk, 1 tablespoon at a time, until the potatoes are the desired consistency. Taste, and add salt and pepper if desired.
