Wednesday Night Kitchen Raid: Creamy Garlic Mashed Potatoes

Wednesday Night Kitchen Raid: Creamy Garlic Mashed Potatoes

This recipe is dedicated to my dear blogging friend, Emma, who LOVES potatoes. These ones are delicious. So much so that the night I made them I had planned to also make some corn and pork chops but I ate so much of these mashed potatoes that I couldn’t eat anything else, I was so full! So, all I had that night was potatoes. I regret nothing. Anyways, if that isn’t a testament to how great these potatoes are, then I don’t know what is.

I don’t know what it is but lately I’m all about the potatoes. They’re just hitting the spot and I want them all the time. They’re such a great comfort food and they’re so versatile. There’s Actifry PotatoesPotato SaladPotato and Leek Soup, and Sweet Potato Fries… but this recipe, it just might be the best. That’s a bold statement, let’s see if it pays off. You make all these potato recipes and let me know which one is the best.

Directions 

  1. Cut potatoes and onions into 1 inch cubes. Bring a pot of salted water to a boil and add the potatoes and onions to the pot. Boil for 15 minutes or until the potatoes pierce easily with a fork. Strain off the water.
  2. Add all the other ingredients to the pot with the potatoes and onions, take an electric mixer and blend it all together.
  3. Now you could leave it at that and eat them as is. But they’re SUPER delicious if you put them in an oven safe dish, and bake it for 10-15 minutes at 400° or until the top is browning and crispy. Then you want to add some more butter to the top and some salt and pepper…. YUM!
  4. Eat.

      1. I had that problem with sweet potatoes (which I know aren’t real potatoes, but then why are they called potatoes?). I wanted them all the time and I ate them a lot, in fact too much and then the whole thrill was gone. Now I haven’t eaten them in 2 months and am hoping my appetite for them will come back.
