Roasted Garlic Mashed Potatoes  Recipe

Makes: 8 servings, about 3/4 cup each

Serving Size: about 3/4 cup

Active Time:

Total Time:

Ingredients

  • 2 heads garlic
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
  • 3 pounds Yukon Gold potatoes (about 12 medium)
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • Black or white pepper to taste

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 425°F. Rub off excess papery skin from garlic heads without separating the cloves. Slice the tips off the heads, exposing the cloves. Place the heads on a piece of foil, drizzle 1 tablespoon oil over each head and wrap into a package. Roast until the garlic feels very soft, 20 to 40 minutes, depending on size. Let cool.
  2. Meanwhile, peel potatoes, if desired, and cut into 2-inch chunks. Place the potatoes and salt in a large heavy saucepan. Add cold water to cover by 2 inches. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to simmer, cover, and cook until potatoes are very tender, 10 to 15 minutes. Drain well.
  3. Transfer the potatoes to a large bowl. Mash with a potato masher, an electric hand-held mixer or by working through a ricer.
  4. Squeeze the garlic cloves into the potatoes. Add buttermilk and pepper and stir to combine.

Tips & Notes

  • Make Ahead Tip: Transfer to a slow cooker, cover and keep on the “warm” setting for up to 2 hours.
