Super creamy and flavorful mashed potatoes full of roasted garlic and Parmesan cheese.
First off, roast your garlic. Preheat your oven to 375ºF. Slice the top off of the heads of garlic and drizzle the exposed cloves with olive oil. Wrap the garlic in foil and bake for 50 minutes. Let cool before handling. To remove the roasted garlic from its papery peel, just hold it in your hand and squeeze it out.
Add the potatoes to a pot of cold water and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to medium high and continue boiling until potatoes are tender and a knife slips right through, about 20 minutes.
Drain the potatoes and use a ricer to mash them (or a potato masher). Stir in the rest of the ingredients (roasted garlic, milk, cream, Parmesan, butter, salt, and pepper) until well blended and creamy. Serve.
There are two keys to turning out good potato croquettes every time. The first, a well-proportioned balance of flour, egg and potato. The second necessity is oil heated sufficiently for deep frying them. The recipe given here ended the diplomatickitchen’s search for one that would turn out excellent croquettes on a regular basis.
This dish is perfect for BBQ season. Because it can be served hot or at room temperature, it travels well.
This recipe serves 4 to 6.
By the way, I like to serve these for the holidays as well!
