Simple Garlic & Feta Smashed Potatoes

This was a spur of the moment experiment. I had a craving for mashed potatoes, but I hate peeling them (they say that all the nutrients are in the skin anyway, so I like to leave them on) and was kinda bored with regular mashed potatoes. I checked the fridge and this is what happened. Every single time that I serve these potatoes, they are gone in record time. Please keep in mind that I am a "measure by eye" type, so the recipe may need to be adjusted to suit your tastes. Enjoy!

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Boil the potatoes and garlic cloves together until potatoes are tender.
  2. Drain, retaining potatoes and garlic.
  3. Add mayo, milk and butter and "smash" the potato and garlic together with a hand masher. (I prefer the texture this way, but you can use a mixer if you prefer it that way.).
  4. When potatoes are the consistency that you like, add the feta cheese and mix well to distribute.
  5. Salt and pepper to taste.
  6. Enjoy.
