Creamy Garlic Mashed Potatoes Recipe




2lbs/1kg potatoes

½ cup whipping cream

½ cup butter

2-3 garlic cloves, minced

salt and pepper

parsley or chives as garnish (optional)


Peel the potatoes and place in a large pot. Potatoes should be roughly the same size, to ensure even cooking.

Fill pot with enough water to cover potatoes and cook the potatoes for about 20 minutes, or until they are tender but not falling apart.

Drain the potatoes well and place into a mixing bowl. Using a mixer, starting slowly at first, whip the potatoes while gradually increasing speed.

Slowly drizzling in the whipping cream and add the minced garlic. Add the softened butter and continue beating the potatoes until they are 'whipped' and fluffy.

Add salt and black pepper to taste, and garnish with chopped parsley or chives.
