Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Roasted Garlic: To roast a head of garlic, first slice off top of head, (about 1/4 inch off top), place on a square of tinfoil that will cover whole head, drizzle top with olive oil, or whatever oil you have on hand, sprinkle with salt and wrap tightly. Place on/in oven proof pan/dish and bake at 350 deg. for 45 min - 1 hours Remove from oven, let cool.
  2. Mash: Peel and cube Sweet potatoes and potatoes, (about 3/4 - 1 inch cubes). place in pot and cover with water. Salt water generously. Bring to a boil and reduce heat. Once you can pierce cubes with fork easily, they are done, (15 min approx). Drain water and mash cubes. Add butter, milk and salt and pepper. Add roaster garlic by either removing each clove and adding it to pot, or, if head is cool enough, squeeze head into pot and cloves should squish right out. mash and stir once more. Texture should be smooth. Add more milk if you like it creamier.
