Roasted Garlic Mashed Potatoes

You will never want to eat ordinary mash potatoes again!  I served this fragrant, creamy mash with the robust Beef and Guinness stew.

Roasted Garlic Mashed Potatoes

Ingredients:

  • 2 medium heads of garlic
  • 3 tbsp. olive oil
  • 900g potatoes, peeled and diced
  • 55g butter, softened
  • 120ml milk, heated
  • salt and pepper to taste
Method:

  1. Preheat the oven to 180C
  2. Drizzle the garlic with olive oil, wrap it in foil and roast in the oven for 40 minutes to 1 hour until soft.
  3. Bring a large pot of salted water to the boil, add the diced potatoes and boil until tender, about 15 minutes.
  4. Drain the potatoes and add the butter and milk.
  5. Cut the garlic in half and squeeze the softened cloves into the potatoes.
  6. Mash together until smooth and creamy.  Season with salt and pepper.
