Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Place garlic heads in a baking dish and drizzle each with 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Bake in the preheated oven until garlic is soft and brown, about 45 minutes.
  3. Bring a large pot of water to a boil and stir in sea salt. Cook potatoes in the salted water until tender, about 30 minutes. Drain.
  4. Transfer potatoes to a large bowl and add sour cream, cream cheese, butter, salt, and black pepper to the bowl. Cover bowl with a lid or a piece of aluminum foil and let mixture stand for 5 minutes to soften butter and cream cheese, about 5 minutes.
  5. Squeeze roasted garlic from the cloves into the potato mixture; mash potatoes until smooth, creamy, and thoroughly combined.

Oh. My Goodness. This is seriously like the Holy Grail of potatoes. My whole family INHALED these, then asked for seconds. So very delicious.

I thought these were okay. I was afraid that two heads of garlic would be over the top because I'm not a huge garlic fan, but even I would use two the next time I made it, as the garlic flavor was not very strong just using one head. Made these for Christmas dinner and everyone seemed to like them.

THE best mashed potatoes ever. I made them the day before Thanksgiving and then put them in the slow cooker on low setting about 3 hours before dinner. Delicious!
