Garlic Mashed Potatoes

Garlic Mashed Potatoes created by Lavender Lynn

The garlic mashed potatoes is what potatoes should be: garlicky and salty. I add some cream in it to give it a velvety texture and run it through a potato presser to ensure there being no lumps in it. I personally don't mind the lumps, but my sister hates lumpy mashed potatoes.

  • Strain the potatoes then put the pot over low heat until the potatoes dry out.
  • Mash the potatoes and garlic, and add milk, cream, butter, 2 tsp salt, garlic salt, and dried oregano. Serve immediately.

    Cooking the garlic with the potatoes brings the flavor into the heart of the dish. I did cut back on the salt somewhat by preference and because we poured sausage gravy over it afterwards. Made a great comfort-food supper! Made for PAC.
