Garlic Mashed Potatoes


  • 1 pound (about 2 large) Potatoes - peeled and quartered
  • 2 cups skim milk
  • 2 large Cloves garlic - chopped
  • ½ teaspoon White pepper


Cover and cook potatoes in a small amount of boiling water for 20-25 minutes or until tender. Remove from heat. Drain and recover.

Meanwhile, in a small saucepan over low heat, cook garlic in milk until garlic is soft, about 30 minutes. Add garlic-milk mixture and white pepper to potatoes.

Beat with an electric mixer on low speed or mash with a potato masher until smooth.

Microwave Directions: Scrub potatoes, pat dry, and prick with a fork. On a plate, cook potatoes, uncovered, on 100% (high) power until tender (about 12 minutes), turning potatoes over once. Let stand 5 minutes. Peel and quarter. Meanwhile, in a 4-cup glass measuring cup, combine milk and garlic. Cook, uncovered, on medium heat until garlic is soft (about 4 minutes).
