WFMW-Roasted Garlic Mashed Potatoes

Here is an easy recipe for delicious garlic mashed potatoes:

5 or 6 large potatoes
1 bulb of garlic
Butter ( I use Smart Balance)
Olive oil

Roast the garlic in the oven on 425 by peeling, placing in foil and drizzling with olive oil. Roast for about 20 minutes or until th garlic is a caramel color

Boil potatoes until tender (do not over boil). Drain potatoes and place in mixing bowl. Add butter and salt. Mix using electric mixer. Press garlic into potatoes and mix in. Add salt to taste.

Voila! An easy potato dish that works for me!

  1. I love garlic potatoes, but I can't quite seem to copy it to a home recipe. I'm trying this one.

    Thanks for sharing!

  2. Yum! We love roasted it whenever we makes the ordinary taste extrordinary! Thanks for sharing your recipe!

  3. Shalee,

    There are a lot of little "tricks" that make the recipe work. When the potatoes are done boiling, be sure to drain them immediately and place the butter and salt in them. This makes a huge difference in the texture. Also, be sure not to over mix them.


    Isn't the taste of roasted garlic superb? Such small change that makes such a huge difference.

  4. Yum! Love roasted garlic! Sounds good!

  5. I am not a fan of mashed potatoes but my family does. And after trying your recipe (love that roasted garlic) I have been converted! It's a hit even with my 2 & 4 year olds. Yay!!
