Garlic Mashed Potatoes Default

Comments: 0


This is our go-to side dish for any and every recipe that gives you good gravy. Yukon Gold potatoes make a nice sweet, creamy mash.

Yield: Serves 6


  • 2½  pounds Yukon Gold potatoes, peeled
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 tablespoon chopped garlic
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1½ teaspoons salt, plus additional to taste
  • Freshly ground black pepper to taste


1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Cook the potatoes until tender, about 25 minutes. Drain well.

2. Combine the milk and garlic in a saucepan and simmer for 5 minutes.

3. In a large bowl, mash the potatoes, milk mixture, butter, salt, and pepper to the desired consistency. Taste and adjust the seasonings, if necessary. Serve immediately.
