1 medium head
russet potatoes, peeled and quartered
salt and pepper to taste
These were fabulous...with my modifications. Based on the other reviews, I used more garlic than the recipe called for.
I was only making this for 2 people, so I used one head of garlic and one pound of russet potatoes.
I used seasoned salt and sea salt, then mashed the potatoes with the garlic, milk to desired consistency, and butter to taste (2-3 tbl). Something was still missing.
I added 4 tbl of sour cream. They tasted just like the garlic mashed potatoes that I have had in 5 star restaurants.
I served this with the Blue Cheese Crusted Filet Mignon w/Port Wine Sauce from this site (submitted by HebeGebe), a caeser salad, and a bottle of Stag's Leap 2003 Cabernet Sauvignon.
We were unhappy with the results. These were somewhat dry, necessitating more milk and butter. Also, despite having used to heads of roasted garlic and liberally seasoning, these were bland. How unfortunate- they were eaten however, as I had a gravy to serve with it. Will keep looking for a "true" garlic mashed potato recipe. Served with "Mushroom Slow Cooker Roast Beef" (made gravy from dripping/liquids) from AR.
These are so yummy! I roasted my head of garlic early in the day because my oven was going to be busy all afternoon. I just squeezed it out into an air-tight containter and kept it covered, on the countertop for a few hours. I used a mix of Yukon Gold and Red potatoes. (I just don't like russet). I also didn't measure the milk; just did it until it seemed right. The garlic flavor really mellows out when it's roasted, so next time, I might even add more garlic. Crazy, I know! I might incorporate the roasted garlic part of this recipe into my fave taters from this site, Slow Cooker Mashed Potatoes. Served with Roast Sticky Chicken from this site. Sooo good!
These were SOOOOOO delicious. Everyone raved about the wonderful flavor. I used a small can of evaporated skim milk instead of regular milk to cut the fat but keep them creamy. I will definitely make these again and again!
This recipe is it!! As per reviews, we roasted the garlic 30 minutes in the oven, and added the oil w/ the garlic. We substituted light sour cream for the milk, and it was perfect!!! Everyone had seconds or thirds at a large family dinner, with lots of other good food they could have had instead! We wondered if we needed to do 2 cloves instead, but this was just right unless you wanted to have garlic with a little potatoes :-) Thank you so much!!
This recipe was reinforcement and a reminder that there is just no comparison between garlic mashed potatoes made with roasted garlic and those made simply by throwing some garlic cloves in with the potatoes and cooking water. Not EVEN comparing apples and apples. The garlic flavor is pronounced but mellowed out by roasting, mild and pleasantly nutty. There is a big reward for taking this extra step. The biggest problem or effort is simply that of planning ahead. I roasted my garlic early on in the day, then just left it in the aluminum foil until I was ready for it. I stuck strictly with butter, no olive oil, and probably double the amount of garlic, but this recipe's submitter has Roasted Garlic Mashed Potatoes down pat. This is the stuff you'd expect to find in the finest steakhouses.
These potatoes taste almost exactly like the ones my husband and I had on our honeymoon in Vegas...and let me tell you they cost a pretty penny. Absolutely wonderful. I will admit that if you are not a garlic lover, you may want to cut down on the amount...it is a bit strong, but it is just the way we like it. I also took another reviewer's advice and added some parmesan cheese to it...wonderful idea. Thanks for a great new side dish.
Delicious!!!! Better than what I had in a restaurant this weekend. The only thing I did different was to use red potatoes with their skins and canned milk instead of regular milk. Served with Garlic Lime Chicken and my company really liked them too.
