Garlic Mashed Potatoes

Mashed potatoes are one of my all time favorite foods, so when asked to make a dish for an Easter potluck I jumped at the chance to make a new recipe of mashed potatoes. I used this recipe as a base, but deviated slightly. I didn’t measure anything, but I’ll use rough estimates.


  • 5 pounds of potatoes (though I used more, probably closer to 6-7 lb)
  • 2 sticks of butter
  • about a cup of milk (though you can use more or less, depending on what consistency you like for your potatoes)
  • about 2 tablespoons of dried rosemary
  • 2 whole roasted garlic bulbs (learn how to roast garlic here)
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese


  1. Remove garlic from bulbs and crush (I used the hand mixer to puree it)
  2. Peel and sliced potatoes. Put potatoes in a pot, cover with water, then bring to a boil.
  3. Once potatoes are cooked, drain.
  4. Add potatoes to large bowl with pureed garlic; mix all other ingredients until potatoes are at desired consistency.
