15 min.prep time
40 min.total time
5 medium-sized potatoes, peeled, cut into eighths
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup warm milk
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 (7 to 9 minutes).
Reduce heat to medium. Cook until potatoes are fork tender (15 to 18 minutes). Drain.
Place potatoes in large bowl. Add milk, butter and garlic. Beat at medium speed until smooth. Season with salt and pepper.
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 for 45 to 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.
