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!
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.
