Roasted Garlic Parmesan Mashed Potatoes
Creamy and bursting with incredible flavor, this next level of potato-goodness comes together in under 30-minutes!
Optional add-ins and toppings: butter, ground black pepper, chives, sour cream.
Wash, peel (optional but recommended for creamy and smooth potatoes), and cube your potatoes.
Add your potatoes to a pot of cold water with just enough water to cover them by about 1.5" and bring to a boil before reducing the heat to medium and letting them cook until fork tender.
Drain your potatoes and return them to the pot, setting it aside so they can "dry" out a bit.
Crush your cloves of roasted garlic and add it to your milk and butter in a saucepan and bring to a simmer until the butter is fully melted.
Pour the milk/butter/garlic mixture over your potatoes and mash using a potato masher.
Add in the Parmesan and mix. Let your potatoes sit for 5 minutes so that the cheese melts and all liquids are absorbed fully.
Salt and season to taste.
Top with your favorite toppings and a small pat of butter and serve. Store any leftovers in an airtight container for up to 5 days. Or scoop potatoes in portions onto a parchment-lined tray and freeze solid before storing in airtight bags.
- For an ultra-smooth potato texture, use a ricer (instead of a masher) to rice your potatoes before adding and mixing in the milk/butter/garlic.
