Delicious Garlic Mashed Potatoes

The perfect side dish during the holidays! These rich and creamy garlic mashed potatoes are simple to make and delicious to taste!

Ingredients  3 lbs russet potatoes, peeled, quartered and cut into 2” pieces  2 tablespoons kosher salt, plus 2 teaspoons  1 tablespoon unsalted butter  4-5 cloves of garlic, minced  1 1/2 cups heavy cream  1/2 cup sour cream  1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese  Handful of chives

Scrub, peel and cut the potatoes into quarters and then 2” pieces. Place the cut potatoes in a large pot. Cover the potatoes with cold water and add 2 tablespoons of kosher salt.

While the potatoes are cooking, in a small saucepan, over medium low heat, add the butter. Once the butter has melted, add the garlic and sauté for 1 minute.

Add the heavy cream to the same saucepan and bring to a gentle simmer. Next, add the sour cream and 2 teaspoons of kosher salt. Whisk until the mixture is smooth, then remove the pot from the heat.

With a potato masher, mash the potatoes while they’re still hot (to avoid large lumps) and slowly add in the hot garlic-cream mixture.

For a smoother, fluffier texture, beat the potatoes with an electric mixer until smooth.

Using a rubber spatula, fold in the grated Parmesan cheese. Taste and adjust seasoning if necessary.

Top with chives, freshly ground black pepper, and a pat of butter if you like. Serve immediately or transfer to an air tight container once cooled and store in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
