5 cups (about 2 pounds) peeled potatoes, cut into 1-inch pieces
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup milk
6 tablespoons Land O Lakes® Butter
1 teaspoon purchased prepared roasted garlic


Place potatoes in 4-quart saucepan or Dutch oven. Add enough water to cover; add 1 teaspoon salt. Bring to a boil over high heat.

Reduce heat to medium. Cook 15-18 minutes or until potatoes are fork tender. Drain.

Place potatoes in bowl. Add milk, butter and garlic. Mash with potato masher or beat with hand mixer until smooth. Add salt and pepper to taste. Season with salt and pepper.

Recipe Tip

To roast fresh garlic, heat oven to 350°F. Cut 1/4 to 1/2 inch from top of garlic bulb to expose cloves. Remove most of outer skin from bulb, leaving bulb intact and cloves unpeeled. Place bulb, cut-side up, on 8-inch piece aluminum foil. Drizzle with 1 teaspoon olive oil; sprinkle lightly with salt and pepper. Wrap in foil. Bake 45-55 minutes or until softened. Cool slightly. Separate the cloves and press cloves slightly to squeeze out softened garlic. Use roasted garlic in recipes or spread on French bread.
