Garlic Mashed Potatoes for Those Who Aren’t Too Concerned About Social Interactions
Or: “This Is Not a Recipe for Close Talkers.”
This recipe shouldn’t take more than ten minutes to prepare, in addition to a twenty-minute boil. The potatoes go well with my roast chicken recipe, but I’m not gonna lie: I gladly eat the mash by itself.
6 unpeeled Yukon Gold potatoes
4 tbsp butter, softened, cut into ¼-inch pieces
½ cup cream
6 cloves garlic, minced
Salt and pepper to taste
Add potatoes to a large pot of boiling water.
Boil until soft, roughly 20 minutes.
Drain and place the potatoes in a large bowl.
Throw butter, cream, and garlic into the bowl.
Mash and/or use a hand mixer if you want creamy potatoes.
Fold in salt and pepper to taste.
Leftovers store well in the fridge. Reheat them with additional cream if needed.
