Garlic Mashed Potatoes

Serves: 4

6 large potatoes, peeled and quartered
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 to 1 1/2 c. milk
2 T. butter
Salt and pepper

In a large saucepan, boil the potatoes for 10-15 minutes or until softened. Drain water and pour potatoes in serving bowl (or return to pot if you prefer). Add 1 cup of milk, butter, garlic, salt and pepper. Mash with a potato masher. Add additional milk if you prefer creamier potatoes.

Tips: Delicious twist on traditional mashed potatoes and just as easy to put together. If you have dairy allergies (like my son) or just don't do dairy, I made these with soy milk for the whole family and they tasted great. No one even knew the difference. Pair these with Garlic Pork Chops and you'll have a whole meal for under $5.
