Roasted Garlic Mashed Potatoes
October 20, 2010

This recipe was reinforcement and a reminder that there is just no comparison between garlic mashed potatoes made with roasted garlic and those made simply by throwing some garlic cloves in with the potatoes and cooking water. Not EVEN comparing apples and apples. The garlic flavor is pronounced but mellowed out by roasting, mild and pleasantly nutty. There is a big reward for taking this extra step. The biggest problem or effort is simply that of planning ahead. I roasted my garlic early on in the day, then just left it in the aluminum foil until I was ready for it. I stuck strictly with butter, no olive oil, and probably double the amount of garlic, but this recipe's submitter has Roasted Garlic Mashed Potatoes down pat. This is the stuff you'd expect to find in the finest steakhouses.
