These potatoes are full of creamy sour cream, cream cheese, and buttery goodness contrasted with rich roast garlic. The texture is as delightful as the flavor combination.

  • Place garlic heads in a baking dish and drizzle each with 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Bake in the preheated oven until garlic is soft and brown, about 45 minutes.

  • Bring a large pot of water to a boil and stir in sea salt. Cook potatoes in the salted water until tender, about 30 minutes. Drain.

  • Transfer potatoes to a large bowl and add sour cream, cream cheese, butter, salt, and black pepper to the bowl. Cover bowl with a lid or a piece of aluminum foil and let mixture stand to soften butter and cream cheese, about 5 minutes.

  • Squeeze roasted garlic from the cloves into the potato mixture; mash potatoes until smooth, creamy, and thoroughly combined.

I thought these were okay. I was afraid that two heads of garlic would be over the top because I'm not a huge garlic fan but even I would use two the next time I made it as the garlic flavor was not very strong just using one head. Made these for Christmas dinner and everyone seemed to like them. Read More

THE best mashed potatoes ever. I made them the day before Thanksgiving and then put them in the slow cooker on low setting about 3 hours before dinner. Delicious! Read More

This recipe is great. However if you use all organic natural ingredients like I do you need to use THREE heads of garlic. The GMO garlic heads most people use are much larger because of genetic engineering than organic natural garlic. The rest of the recipe should stay the same. Other than using coconut oil instead of olive oil when you roast the garlic because we all know olive oil is ONLY a healthy oil when cold. NOT WHEN HEATED OR COOKED WITH. I also prefer my mashed potatoes with the skin left on (also healthier) so it makes the recipe much easier and healthier (Minus the crazy Carbs!) Read More

Great potatoes! They were creamy and delicious. I struggled a bit with the garlic trying to make it in advance the first time (it got all hard) but by the second round it worked great. Tip: don't make the roasted garlic in advance! It turned out a really good basic tasty mashed potato which was what I wanted. It wasn't a dish that really stood out but that being said most people took seconds. Read More

Soooo delicious! I'm definately making these again! I didn't have a full 5lb bag of potatoes....but close enough:) Also I had already started boiling potatoes in garlic water when I found this. I can't believe it didn't call for milk! I was skeptical....but I'm loving them! Read More
