Roasted Garlic Mashed Potatoes

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 25 minutes
Total Time: 35 minutes
Course: Side Dish
Servings: 4 Portions
Calories: 210kcal


  • 2 lbs Potatoes
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1 head Roasted Garlic Cloves
  • 4 oz Milk
  • 2 tbsp Unsalted Butter
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1/2 tsp Pepper Freshly Ground
  • 4 Dashes Tabasco


  • Clean and peel potatoes.  Cut into evenly sized cubes, about 1/2 inch in size.  Thoroughly rinse potatoes to remove any excess starch.  Add to medium sized pot or saucepan and add water until potatoes are covered in about 1-1 1/2 inches of water (approximately 5 cups of water) and add 1 tsp salt.
  • On medium-high heat, bring potatoes to a boil.  Once boiling, reduce to a simmer and cook for 12-14 minutes, until potatoes are tender and a fork will easily pierce through the potatoes.  While potatoes are cooking stir every 5 minutes or so to make sure they don’t stick to the bottom of the pot.
  • Once potatoes are cooked through, drain and return to pot or to a medium sized mixing bowl.  Add garlic cloves, milk, butter, salt, pepper, and Tabasco and mash well with a potato masher.  Enjoy!
