Garlic Mashed Red Potatoes

I was making a chicken dish for dinner the other night and wanted to have some sort of potato to go with it.  I've made a garlic mashed red potatoes recipe before and they didn't turn out bad, but they also weren't great.  So, I found a new recipe this time that had a trick in it that made these potatoes turn out so good; throw the cloves of garlic in the water to let them soften with the potatoes.  Genius!  Instead of ending up with little minced garlic pieces throughout the potatoes it gets mashed right in, creating an evenly distributed garlic goodness.  You'll find plenty of flavor in these bad boys that you won't even need to add gravy or extra butter.

  • 8 medium red potatoes, quartered (not peeled)
  • 3 cloves of garlic, peeled
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 cup skim milk, warmed
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • About 1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
  1. Put quartered potatoes and peeled garlic in a large pan filled with water.  Bring to a boil.
  2. Reduce heat, cover, and let simmer for about 20 minutes or until re potatoes are tender.
  3. Remove from heat and drain water from potatoes and garlic.
  4. Add butter, warmed milk, and salt to pan.  Mash together.
  5. Stir in grated parmesan cheese.  Enjoy!
