I love garlic mashed potatoes, but usually the flavor is a little sharp and bitter, so I came up with this. Roasting the garlic first gives these potatoes all the wonderful garlic flavor, without the sharp or bitter bite. Almost sweet, smoky, and smooth.
- 14 -16 small red potatoes
- 1⁄4 cup milk or 1⁄4 cup chicken broth
- 2 -3 tablespoons butter
- 1 whole head of garlic, roasted (I use Roasted Garlic Roasted Garlic)
- kosher salt
- fresh ground black pepper
- Boil potatoes with skins until fork tender.
- Drain water and coarsely smash potatoes with potato masher. (until just slightly smashed).
- Squeeze the roasted garlic out of the skin into the smashed potato.
- Add milk, butter, salt and pepper. Stir with a spoon until combined. Serve hot with your favorite chicken, beef, or pork dish. No need for gravy with these potatoes! ;-).
- *NOTE: You could always mash the potatoes, to your desired consistency. I prefer the slightly smashed texture for this recipe.*.
I know God would love this...I just know it.
I loved these smashed potatoes. I used Whole Roasted Garlic for the garlic, as I had prepared a large batch of that last week and froze it in individual portions. My anti-mashed potato hubby even loves these. The chunky texture and the excellent flavor lure him in.
Totally outstanding!~ We loved this recipe! I served these with our Thanksgiving Dinner, we ran out! Thank you for a wonderful additon to my "make again" recipe file!
