Garlic Mashed Potatoes - 30 Days 30 Recipes - Day 28
This recipe said to add the garlic right into the pot with the potatoes. I would never have thought to boil it that way, but it really did make a difference. I would add salt to the water next time, but that's probably the only change. For the low amount of fat in this recipe, there is definitely a lot of flavor.
I served these potatoes with the recipe I reviewed just yesterday, Hamburger Stroganoff. I took liberty with that recipe, but this one I left mostly unaltered. The original recipe did recommend using a mixer, but I saw no need. A few lumps are just fine with me!
Try it out and see if you like it. I don't think you'll be disappointed.
