Description

Creamy roasted garlic mashed potatoes. Get ready to be worshipped.

Ingredients

  • 5 pounds Russet Or Yukon Gold Potatoes, Peeled And Rinsed
  • 3 heads To 5 Heads Roasted Garlic
  • 1-½ stick Regular Salted Butter (3/4 Cup)
  • 8 ounces, weight Softened Cream Cheese
  • ½ cups Or So Half-and-half (Or Heavy Cream, If You're Feeling Naughty)
  • Salt To Taste
  • Black Pepper To Taste

Preparation

(Prep time includes time needed to roast garlic.)

Cut the peeled potatoes into pieces and cook in boiling water until fork-tender. Drain water and return to pot, and mash potatoes over low heat until lots of the steam has escaped.

Next, mash in softened butter, cream cheese, half-and-half, and salt to taste. Dump in three to five heads of roasted garlic cloves; stir together, then check seasoning. Be sure to salt adequately.

Add some fresh ground black pepper, and serve with one or two roasted garlic cloves on top. Serve with steak and expect to be worshipped and kissed for at least 38 hours.

These were delicious! I forgot to add salt when the potatoes were boiling, and you really need to, otherwise it is really difficult to add enough later to get the flavor right.

If you are looking for a special mashed potato, this is IT! Wow! I could have eaten the whole amount…for our needs, I halved all quantities and only roasted one bulb of garlic, but OH MY, these were incredible. Served with the Onion and Bleu Cheese sauce for steak.

I made these last Thanksgiving and can’t wait to make them again this week! They’re definitely naughty with all that cream cheese, butter, and cream… but for a special once-a-year treat, they’re absolutely perfect. I’m making 15 pounds of them on Thursday!
