Roasted garlic mashed potatoes people. But not just any garlic mashed potatoes, we’re talking ultimate roasted garlic mashed potatoes.  

But please, don’t be scared away by their ultimateness, they’re actually very easy to make.  Really no more difficult than any other mashed potatoes, but oh, so much more delicious.

If you’ve never roasted garlic, I have to tell you, it’s super simple.  All you need to do is slice the top off of a head of garlic and drizzle it with a little bit of olive oil.  Then you put it into the oven, turn it to 350 degrees and in 1 hour you’ll have perfectly roasted garlic.  

You could even roast the garlic well before you’re ready to make your mashed potatoes.  Just store it in the fridge until you’re ready to use it.

When you’re ready to make your own ultimate roasted garlic mashed potatoes, you just mash in the roasted garlic along with the milk and butter.  And please, don’t be scared away from using the whole head of garlic in your recipe.  Roasting the garlic actually mellows the flavor and just makes it taste savory and delicious with just the right amount of garlic flavor.
