Garlic Mashed Potatoes

I never had a boxed mashed potato in my life until I got to college. My mom always made real mashed potatoes and I never appreciated it until I became an adult. Boy, are they a pain to make! But totally worth it.

Here is a great Garlic Mashed Potato recipe your family will love!

Garlic Mashed Potatoes

2.5 pounds of Idaho Potatoes
6-10 cloves of garlic- to your liking
1/2 C milk
1/4 C melted butter
salt to taste

Fill a large stock pot with an inch of water and bring to a boil. While the water is heating up- wash, peel and dice the potatoes. Peel the garlic.

When water is boiling, place the potatoes and garlic in the water. Reduce heat and cover. Cook for 20-25 minutes- until potatoes are tender.

Drain potatoes & garlic and place in a mixer with a whip attachment. Add milk and butter- whip until smooth. Add salt.
