- 2 lbs potatoes
- 3 cloves garlic
- 3 tbs unsalted butter
- 1/4 c. milk*
- 1/4 c. Parmesan cheese
1. Wash and dice the potatoes and put in a large pot (peel them first if desired). Cover the potatoes with water, then add a little salt to the pot. Crush the garlic cloves with the flat side of a knife and remove the papery skin. Throw them in the pot. Bring the potatoes to a boil on the stove. Reduce to a simmer and simmer for 15 minutes.
2. Drain the potatoes and then put them in a mixing bowl for mashing. The garlic cloves should mash right along with the potatoes. Stir in the butter, milk, Parmesan and pepper. Taste test. Add more salt and pepper as desired.
*I've also used some concentrated chicken broth instead of milk - works great.
