Copycat Applebee’s Garlic Mashed Potatoes

Nothing makes you think of good home cooking like a nice serving of garlic mashed potatoes.  I made this recipe last week with a roast beef and it was a hit!  Next time I’ll be sure to double the recipe.
32 ounces red potatoes
1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup heavy cream
3 tablespoons butter
salt and black pepper, to taste
1/4 cup garlic cloves

1. Place a single layer of garlic cloves on a sheet of aluminum foil and wrap tightly.
2. Roast in 400 degrees F preheated oven for about 45 minutes or until soft.
3. Unwrap and let cool.
4. Peel cloves and set aside until the potatoes are ready.
5. Wash and rinse potatoes under cold water.
6. In large pot, bring red potatoes to a slow boil for about 20 minutes.
7. Remove from heat and drain in colander.
8. In pan or bowl, combine potatoes, peeled and roasted garlic cloves, and all other ingredients and mash with a potato masher.
9. Keep warm until you serve.
8 servings

    If you’re in a hurry I’ve made garlic mashed potatoes from the box. Oh I see some noses going up out there but, hear me out. First I’ll steam the dickens out of some cauliflower til you can mash it with a fork then prepare the potatoes as directed and fold the cauliflower in with the potatoes to add some nutrition, then a little at a time I sprinkle garlic salt on(careful you can over do it) til I reach the flavor I’m going for. I also make the instant spuds in the microwave and I use soymilk, there goes those noses again! Next time I’m going to try some cream cheese or sour cream, heck I may go wild and use both. You could probably use cottage cheese also. However if you subscribe to tradition and boil the spuds, I’ve read you can use the boiled water in place of milk to get the texture and flavor you’re going for. Bon Appetite, Hasta La Bye Bye!
