Garlic Lovers Mashed Potatoes

Garlic Lovers Mashed Potatoes created by ImPat

One of my favourite mashes, and worth the extra effort of preparing the garlic cloves first.

Ready In:
50mins
Serves:
Units:

ingredients

  • 2 -3 heads garlic, seperated into cloves (depending on your love of garlic)
  • 60 g butter
  • 1 14 kg potatoes, peeled and cut up
  • salt and pepper
  • 125 ml whipping cream
  • 3 tablespoons snipped fresh chives

directions

  • Bring some water to the boil and drop in the garlic.
  • Boil for 2 minutes, drain and peel.
  • Melt half the butter in a small saucepan over a low heat and add the garlic.
  • Cover and cook for 20-25 minutes, shaking the pan often.
  • Meanwhile, cook the potatoes in boiling salted water until tender-15-20 minutes.
  • Drain well.
  • Mash the potatoes, and return them to the pan with the remaining butter, salt and pepper.
  • Mash the cooked garlic with a fork, and stir in the cream, heat this mixture, then beat it into the potato mix.
  • Fold through most of the chives-reserving a few for garnish-and serve.

    This dish is so delicious! We love, love, love garlic and of course, potatoes -- so how can you go wrong? I will certainly be serving these potatoes again. There will be no vampires at our house tonight - lol. Thanks for posting this recipe. Made for the AUS/NZ Holiday tag, December, 2011.

    Well in the process of making this the DH informed he doesn't really like garlic in his mash but he after eating this he thought it was o'kay (consider high praise) and the rest of us enjoyed immensely. For 4 I used about 850g of potatoe, 60g butter, 2 heads of garlic, 100ml whipping cream and garlic chives fresh from the the garden. Thank you team mate in Swap #26 March 2009 in the Aussie forum.
