Linda's Chunky Garlic Mashed Potatoes

READY IN: 55mins




  • Preheat oven to 350.
  • Cut the top of the garlic bulb, and place on the middle rack in the oven. Bake until bulbs start to pop out of the skins, about 20-25 minutes.
  • After the garlic bulb is roasted in the oven, remove, and squeeze the bulb, and the garlic will pop out of each finger.
  • Put roasted garlic pieces into a dish, and mash, or chop up fine. Set aside.
  • Meanwhile:
  • While the garlic is roasting, cook potatoes in a lg. pan, just covering with water for about 25 mins., or until fork inserts easliy when inserted. Drain well, put cover on, and set aside.
  • To drained potatoes, add roasted garlic, butter, sour cream, salt, and pepper.
  • Mash with a hand masher. I use a rubber spatulda to break up potatoes a little more. You don't want them completely mashed like regular mashed potatoes.
  • Serve.
