Garlic Mashed Potatoes

Garlic mashed potatoes go with everything from roast chicken to meatloaf. This mashed potatoes recipe is easier than some garlic mashed potatoes, because I use store-bought pre-roasted garlic.

The flavor may not be quite as authentic as mashed potatoes made with slow roasted garlic. But it comes really close, and it's a great timesaver.


  • 6-8 large Yukon gold potatoes
  • 1 cup warm milk
  • 6 Tbsp. butter
  • 2 Tbsp. roasted minced garlic (look for it in the produce section)
  • 1/2 tsp. sea salt or kosher salt
  • 1/2 tsp. freshly-ground black pepper


  1. Peel potatoes and cut into 1/2-inch cubes.

  2. Place in a large saucepan or stock pot, and cover with water completely.

  3. Bring to a boil, then simmer, uncovered, until potatoes are fork-tender, 15-25 minutes. Drain.

  4. Return potatoes to saucepan. Add the milk, butter and garlic. Mash with a potato masher.

  5. Stir in the sea salt and pepper.
Serve immediately.

Makes 6-8 servings.
