This is a very good recipe for garlic lovers. I got this from another site and made a lot of changes that I think made it better. You may want to use more or less garlic, just go by your personal preference. I made this for my DH, he loved it and he is such a picky eater!


  1. Peel and cut up the potatoes. Place in pot of water and boil until very soft.
  2. Place half and half, garlic, and butter in a saucepan. Heat at a medium setting until heated through and butter is melted, do not boil.
  3. Drain and mash the potatoes. I always use an electric mixer to make them creamy.
  4. Add the cream, garlic, butter mixture and mix well.
  5. Add the parmesan cheese.
  6. Taste to see how much salt you need because the cheese can be pretty salty on it's own.
  7. The potatoes will thicken a bit so give them about 5 minutes to sit before serving.

These are just heavenly! I was looking for some comfort food for dinner last night and chose this recipe to go with chicken and I am so glad I did. The recipe is very easy to make. I made as posted. My potatoes were small so I used about 6 or 7 and ended up only using about 2/3 of the half and half mixture. The potatoes were creamy, garlicky, and so flavorful. Thanks for posting a keeper!
