Garlic Smashed Potatoes

This is a simple recipe but mashed potatoes are a staple for my holiday table. For more rustic mashed potatoes leave the peel on.

4 pounds Yukon gold potatoes, peeled or well scrubbed, cut into 1” pieces
½ stick butter
½ cup milk
sea salt
freshly ground pepper
2 bulbs of roasted garlic

In a large pot, cover potatoes with water (this can be done the day before and stored in the fridge overnight). Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer until soft, about 15 minutes.

After draining away the water, add butter, milk, salt and pepper to taste, and squeeze in garlic cloves. Mash with a potato masher, ricer, or whip gently with an electric mixer.

Makes 8-10 servings
