Mashed Potatoes With Roasted Garlic and Herbs

Total Time

Potatoes are comfort food But when you add Lavender to it and you have real comfort food! Lavender and rosemary are a match made in heaven. Use together or alone. Your choice. You can throw fresh garlic into the potatoes when boiling in place of roasting them for ease. Almost as good as roasted garlic. To bring it over the top try it topped with Luscious Creamy Glazed Onions.

Wonderful mashed potatoes! So easy and creamy and delicious. I only used the rosemary because I don't have a fresh lavender plant and I can't find it in the spices at the grocery store any more! I am going to use my leftovers to make gnocchi, hopefully it will be just as delicious. Thank you!

Mizz Rita L, you did it again! Another Academy Award winning recipe! Used roasted garlic which I would recommend over fresh, and white pepper instead of black. What a luscious recipe-even after three helpings! (I'm stuck to the dining chair for the next 10 hours!) Served this with our own smoked turkey breast and Recipe #17481. PS used the lavender only, not the rosemary.
