I remember first seeing someone throw whole garlic cloves into boiling water with potatoes at my Uncle Brian's & Aunty Pat's house when I was a child. Aunty Pat is an excellent cook, so I remember taking note. Now, as an adult, I almost always throw at least a couple of garlic cloves in with the potatoes. This recipe is extra creamy, and infused with a wonderful garlic flavour. Great dish to make for a potluck!Ingredients
- Serves 6 -
- 4 large Russet Potatoes
- 5 cloves peeled garlic
- 1/2 tsp coarse salt
- 1/2 cup whole milk
- 1/4 cup butter, cut into small pieces
Peel potatoes and quarter. In a large saucepan, combine potatoes, garlic cloves and 1/4 tsp salt; cover with water.
Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer until potatoes are tender, about 20-25 minutes.
Drain and place garlic and potatoes in mixing bowl.
Pour milk over potatoes. Add butter and 1/4 tsp salt. Using an electric mixer, whip until smooth and creamy.
