Roasted Garlic Mashed Potatoes

Roasted Garlic Mashed PotatoesSkip the gravy with these mashed potatoes—they won't need it. The roasted garlic, herb, and sour cream flavor them to delicious perfection.

Recipe Ingredients:

1 1/2 pounds Yukon gold potatoes or other potatoes, quartered
2 teaspoons bottled minced roasted garlic*
1/4 cup light dairy sour cream
2 to 4 tablespoons fat-free milk
2 teaspoons snipped fresh rosemary, thyme, or oregano
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon black pepper

Cooking Directions:

  1. In a covered large saucepan cook potatoes in a small amount of boiling water for 20 to 25 minutes or until tender. Drain in a colander; return to saucepan.
  2. Add garlic to potatoes. Mash with a potato masher or an electric mixer on low speed. Add sour cream, milk, desired herb, salt, and pepper. Beat until light and fluffy.

Makes 4 servings.

*To roast your own garlic: For every 1 teaspoon of roasted garlic, wrap 3 unpeeled garlic cloves in foil. Bake in a 400°F (205°C) oven for 25 to 35 minutes or until cloves feel soft when pressed. When cool enough to handle, squeeze garlic paste from cloves.
