Skip the boxed flakes and make from-scratch mashed potatoes in no time. This flavorful side dish recipe gets its kick from fresh garlic.
1 1/2 pounds cubed, unpeeled red potatoes
3 garlic cloves, peeled and thinly sliced
1/2 cup 1% low-fat milk
2 tablespoons butter
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
How to Make It
Place potatoes and garlic in a large saucepan; cover with cold water, and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, until potatoes are tender when pierced with a knife (about 20 minutes). Drain; return to pot over low heat.
Add milk, butter, salt, and pepper. Mash potatoes with a potato masher to desired consistency.
