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.
