Garlic Mash Potatoes
Today for dinner, hubs and I had some grilled steak, veggies, and garlic mash potatoes. I love the taste of garlic mash potatoes, especially when the garlic is baked in the oven with a touch of EVOO and rosemary. It gives plain ol' mash potatoes more life. You have to cut 2 whole garlic bulbs in half, drizzled with EVOO inside, and sprinkled with dried or fresh rosemary. Wrap the garlic bulbs in foil and put it in the oven at 325 degrees F for about 45 minutes. Let cool for about 20 minutes, then squeeze out the garlic, which should come out quite easily and mix it well into your mash potatoes, add a bit of cream or milk with butter, salt and pepper to taste. It's all up to you how you would like your garlic mash potatoes to taste, but this is how I do it and hope you get to try it soon. Great with steak and chicken.
Pictures don't do it justice and since it's late at night I'm a tad bit lazy and tired to adjust the colorization and lighting, hehe.
