Everything Mashed Potatoes

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by MelvinsWifey

Everything goes in these ultra flavorful and garlicky mashed potatoes. It's so worth it! Sometimes I coarsely mash these and leave a few small chunks for texture, and sometimes I whip these for a more smooth texture. Either way are divine!

Everything, indeed ~ Right on! The bulb of garlic I had was small, so I used it all & mashed it up before adding to mashed potatoes, so that I didn't mash the potatoes TOO MUCH! I'd diced up the UNPEELED potatoes & steamed them before mashing 'cause I like the peelings! Everything else went in pretty much as directed, & the result was OUTSTANDING! Thanks for the recipe!
