A simple but tasty side dish. The roasted garlic and rosemary make these mashed potatoes stand out.

These were delicious, full of flavor, and simple. I was going to serve these on a day when I worked late and wanted to prep them as much as possible the day before; so I cut up the red potatoes and place them in the refrigerator in a pot filled with cold water (enough to completely cover the potatoes). I also roasted my garlic, chopped my rosemary, and stirred them into the sour cream. When I came home from work the next day, all I needed to do was boil the potatoes and after they were done, I added in the prepped sour cream, some salt & pepper. I added just a spash of milk while mashing to make them a little more creamy, but either way I think this is a winning smashed potatoe recipe! I plan on using it for the upcoming holiday dinners that I'll be hosting. Thanks for the great recipe!
