1/2 Photos of Garlic Mashed Potatoes
An Dracon's Note:
I was always wanting the Garlic mashed potatoes I ate in restaurants to have more garlic. My mom has always used evaporated milk and everyone really loves her mashed potatoes. I decided to use her technique and seriously increase the garlic content to come up with the flavor that I thought a Garlic Mashed Potato dish should have. Simmering the garlic with the potatoes smooths out the harsh garlic taste while perfuming the potatoes with an abundance of garlic. I also wanted the dish to be very easy to size upwards for company. You can do this very easily for every two additional potatoes you use. By the way... My husband told me I had errors in my recipe. To make it absolutely correct preface each of the steps with Make Husband...
