Amazing Seasoned Garlic Mashed Potatoes

I love it when I find a good recipe, and make it amazing. It brings a sense of pride and happiness. And then you eat it, and it's gone. But the "mmmm" factor remains!

I have an obsession with Garlic. Luckily, it's something my husband shares. A recipe calls for 1T Garlic? Let's double that. I won't go so far to actually wear the scent...but oh, garlic, I love you!

Seasoned Garlic Mashed Potatoes

Enough Potatoes for your family, Red, Yukon, or new
3-4 T dried Minced Onion
1-2 Garlic cloves, minced
1/2 to 1 stick butter, softened
1/4c. fresh parsley, or 2 T dried Parsley
Milk, as needed

Sour Cream, as needed, optioinal

Cut potatoes in chunks, no need to peel. (Most of the vitamins are found in the skin anyway!) Put potatoes and garlic in boiling water, and boil until the potatoes can be pierced through with a fork; about 30 minutes.
Drain the potatoes, and then put them in a large bowl.

Add onion, butter, parsley, milk and sour cream. Mash potatoes with a potato masher or blender until it's your desired consistency. Add more milk and butter/sour cream until it's perfect!

One note on mashed potatoes: Add what you need to get the texture that you love. More milk, butter, sour cream, etc. The original recipe was too dry. We just added more milk and seasonings until it was just right!

These potatoes overflow with amazing flavor. You'll want them as the main course!
