Mashed Potatoes

Approx. 2lbs of Potatoes (Preferably Yukon Gold peeled & cut into equal pieces)

Salt & Pepper to taste

2 tablespoons of butter

4-5 cloves finely diced garlic

1 tablespoon olive oil

1 teaspoon grated Parmesan

1 teaspoon garlic powder

1/4 a cup of half n half

Instructions

  • Cook the potatoes in a large pot of water that is simmering. Potatoes will take approx. 20 minutes till tender.
  • Meanwhile, add your chopped garlic to a saute pan with olive oil and cook till lightly brown.
  • Once potatoes are tender and able to be easily cut through then drain of the liquid.
  • Use a potato masher to mash the potatoes; if you do not own one than an electric mixer or whisk will suffice. Make sure to be gentle and not over mix. Add the parmesan & garlic powder while gently mashing the potatoes.
  • Warm the butter and milk in a saute pan. Stir this into the mashed potato till creamy along with the garlic, salt & pepper.
  • Garnish with chives or scallions.
