Garlic Mashed Potatoes

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!  

- 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.
