Garlic Mashed Potatoes

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Vchef607

The garlic mashed potatoes is what potatoes should be: garlicky and salty. I add some cream in it to give it a velvety texture and run it through a potato presser to ensure there being no lumps in it. I personally don't mind the lumps, but my sister hates lumpy mashed potatoes.

Cooking the garlic with the potatoes brings the flavor into the heart of the dish. I did cut back on the salt somewhat by preference and because we poured sausage gravy over it afterwards. Made a great comfort-food supper! Made for PAC.
