1 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup milk

6 tablespoons Land O Lakes® Butter

1 teaspoon purchased prepared roasted garlic



How to make

  1. STEP 1

    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.

  2. STEP 2

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

  3. STEP 3

    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.

Tip #1

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.
