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.
