I love potatoes in any way, shape or form. I have never made garlic mashed potatoes, eaten them several times, so this recipe seemed the perfect fit for me.
These garlic mashed potatoes were a side dish to a meal that included marinated flank steak and kale chips.
This recipe is a labor of love for mashed potatoes. Garlic is cooked in olive oil. The cooked potatoes and garlic are put through a food mill, which I borrowed for this project. The garlic infused olive oil, salt, pepper, cream and potato cooking water are all stirred together. The consistency seemed much different than normal mashed potatoes. Gluey was one adjective that came to mind. I did not particularly like using a food mill and liked cleaning even less. The amount of work for this recipe was not worth it. I will stick to regular mashed potatoes and order garlic ones when I am out at a restaurant:)
