Mashed Red Potatoes With Garlic

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Oolala

From the paper, adapted from "Bradley Ogden's Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner" cookbook, 1991. I usually have red potatoes in the house and this sounds so good! I guessed time since I haven't made this yet.

I make this from Bradley Odgen's Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner cookbook. These potatoes are great! I use buttermilk in place of milk, and a KitchenAid mixer in place of a food mill. Thanks, Oolala for posting!
