Ingredients: two pounds medium-sized potatoes (most preferably Yukon Gold), 1 garlic bulb, 1/3 cup cream, 1 tablespoon olive oil, 3 tablespoons butter, Salt and pepper to taste,


Preheat your oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Get rid of garlic skins and chop off the tops of each and every clove. Spray just a little bit of olive oil on the skinned garlic, sprinkle some salt, and gently wrap them in an aluminum foil. Bake in the preheated oven for 40 minutes or until the garlic cloves turned out to be tender and dark brown Take out from the oven and allow it to cool for a couple of minutes. For the time being, prepare a medium-sized cooking pot. Rinse the potatoes thoroughly and peel them off. Immediately after you have finished peeling, cut the potatoes into 1-inch cubes and boil into the pot with enough water to cover them in addition to teaspoon of salt. After a couple of minutes of boiling, reduce into a simmer till your potatoes become soft when pricked with a fork or toothpick for around 15-10 minutes.

In another saucepan, a smaller one, thaw butter and cream together till warm and consistently mixed. Remove the potatoes entirely and put back to your stovetop over tremendously reduced heat.

Toss in roasted garlic into the potatoes and start out mashing them utilizing a potato masher or even a fork will do. Fill in cream and butter and continue on mashing until mixture turns dense and paste-like. Make sure not to overwork the potatoes.

Sprinkle with salt and pepper in your desirable amount. Serve right away and delight in!
