Ingredients

Nutrition
  • 2 -3 heads garlic, seperated into cloves (depending on your love of garlic)
  • 60 g butter
  • 1 14 kg potatoes, peeled and cut up
  • salt and pepper
  • 125 ml whipping cream

  6. Drain well.
  7. Mash the potatoes, and return them to the pan with the remaining butter, salt and pepper.
  8. Mash the cooked garlic with a fork, and stir in the cream, heat this mixture, then beat it into the potato mix.
  9. Fold through most of the chives-reserving a few for garnish-and serve.
