A must-add for the cookbooks of all garlaholics. While the garlic was cooking, I sauteed a chopped sweet onion until it was turning brown and mixed it in with the spuds. Delicioso!
Jan, my family seemed a little nervous as I was preparing this :) but it was loved by all. When I separated the garlic cloves, I didn't remove the stem end from each clove. That's the only thing I will do differently next time. The garlic was super easy to peel, but I still needed a knife for the ends. I love garlic, and this created a garlic butter rather than just boiling the garlic with the potatoes and then mashing. Delicious!
Jan, I made this for my "camping family". DH, Mom, 2 brothers, and 2 SILs (not The Siamese). I literally knocked their socks off on this one. Great recipe. Easy to make, smelled heavenly, and disappeared very fast. Traveling, I didnt have my herb garden, so I substituted the tops of green onions, finely minced. It worked out fine. Thanks for a great recipe. A keeper for sure!
Steps 3 & 4 I use 1 tsp of butter & 2 tsp of minced garlic (in the jar garlic) & sautee until golden brown. This is helpful if your limited on time
This dish is so delicious! We love, love, love garlic and of course, potatoes -- so how can you go wrong? I will certainly be serving these potatoes again. There will be no vampires at our house tonight - lol. Thanks for posting this recipe. Made for the AUS/NZ Holiday tag, December, 2011.
Well in the process of making this the DH informed he doesn't really like garlic in his mash but he after eating this he thought it was o'kay (consider high praise) and the rest of us enjoyed immensely. For 4 I used about 850g of potatoe, 60g butter, 2 heads of garlic, 100ml whipping cream and garlic chives fresh from the the garden. Thank you team mate in Swap #26 March 2009 in the Aussie forum.
I loved this recipe Jan and so did the garlic lovers in this family. This mashed spud is so creamy and I loved the addition of the garlic and chives. I followed as written, except I cheated and boiled the garlic with the potatoes! This will be a great recipe for winter. Thanks Jan
Garlic ... yummy...had to use jar garlic but still worked out fine. Thanks Jan for this keeper:)
Excellent and the garlic really wasn't that much of an effort to prepare. By boiling first it certainly made it very easy to peel! Thanks Jan for a great way to prepare mashed potatoes!
So glad I tried this version. I used to boil the garlic with the potatoes, and mash altogether. Cooking the garlic in butter and then cream, certainly adds more dimension to the overall flavor. Will be making my garlic mashed this way from now on. Thanks.
