Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • To make it...

  • Place the potatoes in a large saucepan with the garlic and enough lightly salted water to cover. (Can be done to this point up to 4 hours ahead. Cover and refrigerate.) Place over high heat and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer 15 to 20 minutes or until fork-tender. Drain. Beat with an electric mixer or mash with a potato masher until smooth. Add the butter. Gradually add the milk until the potatoes are fluffy. Blend in the salt and herbs.

  • To fake it...and save 30 minutes

  • Heat two 20-oince packages red mashed potatoes according the label directions. Beat in one 2-ounce package Boursin or another garlic herb cheese.
