Garlic Mashed Potatoes - Recipe

Start with your favorite mashed potato recipe and add garlic. There are many ways of adding garlic to potatoes and you can use more than one way in a single dish with tasty results.

Our favourite garlic mashed potatoes are made with home dried garlic powders. Cook and drain the potatoes as usual. Add butter, milk or cream, salt, fresh ground pepper, and a varietal garlic powder. For a comparison of different garlic powders see the discussion of varietal garlic powders and granules.

To give your mashed potatoes a visible garlic signature, sauté some thin slices of garlic until they are golden and place them on top of the potatoes. Giant cloves from Yugoslavian or Leningrad bulbs, with a sprinkling of chopped parsley or fresh marjoram, give an eye-catching decorative effect as well as a wonderful flavour hit.

Mashed Potatoes with Garlic Slices
  • If you have some baked or roasted garlic on hand you can add some to the mashed potatoes.
  • For a garlicky taste with bite, add some crushed raw garlic at the time of mashing. We particularly like fresh Leningrad in our mashed potatoes.
  • Serving garlic mashed potatoes with a pat of garlic butter on top is decadently elegant.
  • A couple of large cloves of Leningrad added to a pot of boiling potatoes give a delicate flavour to the mashed potatoes.
