Roasted Garlic Mashed Potatoes
Serves 8; preparation time about 30 minutes
4 large baking potatoes, peeled and cut into pieces (about 6 cups)
4 o 6 cloves garlic, roasted
6 tablespoons butter (about ¾ stick)
½ to 1 cup milk
2 tablespoons snipped garlic chives
Boil the potatoes in water until they are cooked, about 20 minutes.
In an electric mixing bowl, combine the potatoes, roasted garlic, and butter. Mix on medium high speed to blend.
Add enough milk to reach the desired consistency. For thicker potatoes use less milk. For thinner potatoes use more milk.
Mix in the garlic chives and season with salt and freshly ground pepper.
