Garlic Mashed Potatoes


Garlic Mashed Potatoes

Introduction

A comforting classic with a mild garlic taste and very little added fat. We used very little butter but served it on top so you can really taste it. A comforting classic with a mild garlic taste and very little added fat. We used very little butter but served it on top so you can really taste it.

    Way too runny. I like to use Swansons Broth, Fat Free No MSG and boil the potatoes in the broth. After wards when you strain them the broth can be added to soup.I put 1/4 cup milk in the microwave and I tablespoon chopped garlic that really gave the garlic taste. Pat in Maine - 3/9/10

    I don't understand why you would cook the potatoes first and then let them sit for 30 mins while you cook the garlic. It seems to me you would cook both at the same time, that way everything is hot and ready at the same time - 4/10/08

    Want five stars? I recommend doing this: Use the two cups of milk on low heat as suggested. I crushed my garlic, added a whole bunch of pepper. For the finish add 1-2 tablespoons of grainy mustard to give it a kick. Add the milk mixture slowly so you don't make it wet. I only used about 1/2. Enjoy! - 2/1/13

  • For 2 large russet potatoes, this is way too much milk. Without adding all the unhealthy alternatives, as suggested, these potatoes turn out too runny. Cutting back on the milk is a must. - 2/23/09
