Recently, I mentioned that I was making a BIG effort to get “real” meals on the table for the family…and that means I have lots of our favorite dishes to share with you. I figured it was also a great time to start working on creating a Recipe Book that is full of our Family’s Favorites so that I could make copies of it and give it to the kids when they start out on their own (gah!!).
Today the recipe we are sharing is a family favorite…Red Garlic Mashed Potatoes!
Red Garlic Mashed Potatoes
*printable recipe here: Red Garlic Mashed Potatoes
8 medium red potatoes, cubed
2 teaspoons crushed garlic (or 2 – 3 cloves)
1/2 cup butter or margarine
1/4 cup half-and-half cream
2 Tablespoons white sugar
1/4 teaspoon steak seasoning
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
Place the potatoes into a large pot, and fill with enough water to cover. Add 1 teaspoon of the crushed garlic to the water for flavor. Bring to a boil, and cook for about 10 minutes, or until easily pierced with a fork.
Drain the potatoes, and add the butter. Mash until the butter is melted. Mix in the half-and-half, sugar, steak seasoning, garlic powder and remaining garlic. Mix potatoes with an electric mixer until smooth.
- Serve hot.
This recipe is one of those tried and true recipes that makes the perfect side dish for a nice Sunday or weeknight dinner. It also makes a great dish to serve at Thanksgiving or to bring to a dinner party. Everyone loves a good mashed potato. And this one does not disappoint.
