A bulb of garlic is roasted until soft and mellow, before being added into freshly made mashed potatoes. Butter and additional milk are used to achieve the desired flavour and consistency. A delicious side dish.
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. Amazing! - 02 Mar 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
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! - 27 Oct 2005 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
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! - 31 Jan 2002 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
