Garlic Mashed Potatoes

I always make these Garlic Mashed Potatoes around the holidays, because they are the ultimate comfort food. They can be served alongside pretty much anything. The added garlic gives these perfect mashed potatoes an extra punch that brings an ordinary dish up a notch.

Hint: To avoid gummy potatoes, only add warm ingredients to the potatoes (warm butter and cream) and drain potatoes completely, removing as much water as possible.

  • 1/2 cup butter melted
